The NEC Force, acronym of "Network Enabled Capabilities", is a Defence-Industry project aiming to improve the communication time and the acquisition of information in military operations, through the use of new information technologies. The planning phase, at an inter-force level, aims to create a Force composed of three medium digitalized brigades, the most important of which is the "Pinerolo" one, through the modernization of all components.
The NEC Force project gives the possibility to connect directly and immediately each soldier with the decisional centre. In that way the soldier on the field can enter the databases as if he was in front of the computer and communicate by sending messages night and day or images to all the units on the network.
The project is ambitious and the first step for its realization is the Pinerolo Brigade that, with its components, represents the vanguard of the "Future Soldier" Project; thanks to it, the Armed Force intends to realize a link towards the future land integrated Force.
