General Dynamics wins contract to upgrade NIMCIS

Defence contractor General Dynamics UK announced at defence exhibition DSEi 2011 (Defence Security and Equipment International) that it has been awarded a £3.4m contract to upgrade the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps’ (RNLMC) New Integrated Marines Communications and Information System (NIMCIS).

This upgrade, called NIMCIS2, will bring the Dutch force’s tactical communications system in line with the recently delivered British Armed Forces’ Bowman CIP 5.4 capability and ensure interoperability between the two allied forces.
