What is the MIP Information Model?

The Multilateral Interoperability Programme, a military standardization body comprising 24 member nations and NATO, is pleased to present the MIP Information Model (MIM)! The MIM provides a common semantic reference for the C2 domain. It embodies all operational concepts of its predecessor, the widely adopted JC3IEDM, and is designed with regard to readability, modularity, extensibility, semantic strictness, and model consistency.

The MIP Information Model represents a valuable contribution to the service design for future mission networks. Using the MIM, we can ensure that information exchanged across multiple services will be consistent and composeable. As a unique semantic reference for the C2 domain, the MIP Information Model also supports the data modelling and harmonization efforts within NATO.

The MIM employs state-of-the-art modelling techniques and tools based on open standards and industry best practices. It is not tied to a specific exchange technology. Free software tools facilitate the adoption and adaptation of the MIM.

MIM goes NATO STANAG

MIP has submitted a proposal for a new cover STANAG to the NATO C3 Board. It recommends using the MIP Information Model for the definition of information exchange specifications to aid full interoperability of NATO Forces. MIP is also seeking to add the MIM to the NATO Interoperability Standards and Profiles (NISP) and the NATO FMN Implementation Plan (NFIP) as the semantic reference model on which future specifications should be based.

Multilateral Interoperability Programme

The Multilateral Interoperability Programme, referred to as MIP, is an interoperability organisation established by national Command and Control Information Systems (C2IS) developers with a requirement to share relevant Command and Control information in a multinational or coalition environment. As a result of collaboration within the programme, MIP produces a set of specifications which when implemented by the nations, provide the required interoperability capability.

Secure Transmission and Storage of Personal Information

We use the https protocol to secure the transmission of your personal information from your web browser to our web server.

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft implements technical and organizational security measures to safeguard stored personal data against inadvertent or deliberate manipulation, loss or destruction and against access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological progress.

How do we use this information?

Who can access your profile information?

Except for the "Welcome" area, all other areas of the MIM portal ("projects" in terms of Redmine) require users to login. Your name will be visible to other registered users if you contribute content to the website.

Please note that the MIM portal serves as a collaboration environment that allows users of the MIM to provide feedback and discuss issues with the MIP community. If you wish to stay anonymous, please do not contribute content to the MIM portal!

MIM portal administrators can see profiles. As of 27-June-2018, the following persons are administrators of the MIM portal:

How long do we keep information?

We store server logs for a time period of 30 days.

Profile information are stored until the user unregisters. If a user is unreachable, because her or his email address has become invalid, we reserve the right to delete the user account and the corresponding profile information.

If you upload website content, this content will be kept until you remove it or you ask the administrators to do so. Modifications made to the Subversion repositories will be kept unlimited in time.

The portal associates your contributed content with your user account and name. For instance, it keeps track of the reporter of a ticket or the commenter of a specific ticket note. This information is kept until you remove your user account. In the latter case, the user account/name is replaced by "anonymous" throughout the portal.

The MIP community uses the MIM portal to inform registered users on ongoing activities and important updates to the MIM, its associated tools and services. News are provided online and distributed via email on an irregular basis. We aim at keeping the number of emails low (about one email per month on average).

You may also receive notifications for things (e.g., tickets) that you are involved in, that you watch, that you are assigned to, or that you are the owner of.
