Partnership for Peace Information Management System


Partnership for Peace Information Management System

General Information

The mission of the Partnership for Peace Information Management System (PIMS) is to enable efficient reliable information exchange between PfP countries and the NATO community - a key first step in the orderly process of incorporating Partners into NATO initiatives. PIMS will facilitate the rapid communications and coordination required to support individual PfP objectives as well as the overall goals of the PfP Program. By extending economical communications connectivity and an automated means for common access to information, PIMS will help support an environment conducive to multinational cooperation in Europe. PIMS is a US bilateral program which supports the strengthening of US-Partner relations and PfP mission enhancement through Information technology.

The Program was established on the premise that each Partner has relevant and pertinent information to contribute and is also in the best position to determine its own information requirements. Collaborative database development provides a practical approach towards leveraging information resources for the benefit of all users and future coalition partners. O&M cost sharing provides an economical means of accommodating individual needs for processing, connectivity, maintenance, system familiarization, and other technical services, when PIMS hardware is required. The terms of both arrangements are implemented through Memorandum of Agreement between US DOD and PIMS-installed Partners.

Organization

PIMS is a virtual organization that includes users from the USA and across Eurasia. Still, the PIMS Program is managed by SPAWAR Systems Center Charleston, European Division, located in Stuttgart, Germany. Twelve In-Country Coordinators (ICCs) in PfP partner countries round out the PIMS team.

Mission

Strengthening Euro-Atlantic Security Cooperation and Interoperability by providing opportunities and technology to share knowledge and promote transformation.

Vision

To be the leading integrator of sustainable technology solutions connecting the diverse nations, organizations, and activities of the Euro-Atlantic Community to meet evolving global security challenges.
