The NCOIC is a unique collaboration of premier leaders in the

services industries. The Consortium works in tandem with customers
from around the world, each with a specific mission, to provide a set
of tools that enable the development of network centric capabilities
and products. An example of the consortium’s unique capabilities the
recent agreement between NCOIC and the U.S. Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) to advance the Enterprise Architecture of
NextGen, FAA’s national airspace (NAS) transformation program. The
NCOIC will analyze and evaluate NextGen’s enterprise architecture
views, products, plans, net-centric patterns and operational concepts.
Working collaboratively, its members will develop “voice of industry”
recommendations about applying net-centric standards to the NextGen
procurement, as a way to achieve interoperability in the NAS and,
potentially, the skies beyond U.S. borders.
