RoCK is a cloud-web based application. Its objective is to effortlessly enable users especially in the Capabilities and Force Integration Team (CFIT) to search, view/review, validate, verify and manage land capabilities data all in place.

The software essentially captures, analyses and verifies military data from various trusted data sources (internally and externally).

So, this means that all users across the NATO ACT network have the ability to add or append data in the system, and data can also be automatically imported into the system from other third-party systems. For example, it imports data from JANES – A trusted source for the security and defense intelligence and one of the most comprehensive and updated commercial solution that offers public military data.

To better understand the ease and functionality that this product offers, a CFIT and other NATO user would have a comprehensive view of the information related to a data subject within NATO, from the military structures of NATO member countries, national units whether committed or non-committed to NATO Forces, to the name of the unit, number of people, military equipment, training, and other related information. They would also have the ability to view information about all military units in the Armed Forces of individual NATO allied countries, identifying and acquiring missing capabilities for NATO exercises, tasks and operations.
Essentially, optimizing time, eliminating errors and making the use of spreadsheets and PDFs a thing of the past.

It’s also imperative to mention that the minimal viable product – RoCK can contains classified information that can be added by the CFIT users and other users across the NATO network. Hence, its hosted-on the NATO network for security and tracking purposes, no data inside RoCK shall be made public. Of-course, all end users can only access the system with their RoCK credentials.

In summary, the implementation of RoCK would be a game changer not only for LANDCOM (NATO-Allied Land Command) but also for all other NATO Commands and Military Forces of NATO’s member countries as it will enhance the process and reduce the complexity of searching/finding information, increasing the efficiency and accuracy of the capabilities data for all services of the Armed Forces. Essentially, it will reduce potential errors and issues encountered during reporting and planning activities.
