Advancements in air defence: DARS integration into NATINAMDS

Story by Allied Air Command Public Affairs Office

The Alliance’s Deployable air surveillance and control unit – the DARiS – has accomplished its integration into the NATO Integrated Air and Missile Defence system (NATINAMDS) for the German-led multinational air exercise Air Defender 2023.

Air defence systems have evolved significantly, from rudimentary warning systems to sophisticated integrated air and missile defence systems. NATINAMDS is a prime example of this. It is a command-and-control network that links sensors and weapon systems in the air, on land, at sea, and in space to operate as a single unit. The integration of DARS into NATINAMDS from 6 June 2023 from Erndtebrueck (Germany) is critical to improving the system’s capabilities. DARS provides real-time situational awareness, making it an essential component of modern air defence systems.

“Integrating DARS into NATINAMDS system is another milestone for DACCC,” said Brigadier General David Morpurgo Deputy Commander. “This shows the capacity and resilience of NATO to deter and defend the Alliance. Integrating DARS into NATINAMDS offers several benefits, including improved detection and tracking capabilities, greater situational awareness, and faster response times”.

The integration of DARS into NATINAMDS has had a significant impact on air defence capabilities. It has improved the system’s ability to detect and track threats and provides a more comprehensive picture of NATO air and space.
