One of the core 2iC innovations that makes this advanced level of digital interoperability in the battlespace possible is the Lean Services Architecture (LSA). 2iC invented the Lean Services Architecture and the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) contracted 2iC to publish it as an open standard using the Open Government Licence in January 2014.
The Lean Services Architecture specification is an important part of the MoD Land Open Systems Architecture (LOSA) programme. It allows the MoD to enable interoperability at the tactical level and realise the benefits of open systems through the adoption of a standard services interface definition.
2iC is an active and respected member of several MoD technical working groups, setting the future defence standards for vehicles, soldiers and bases.
techUK is the trade body for UK technology companies, and 2iC is the elected chair of the Defence & Security SME Council which represents members to wider industry and government, including ministers.
2iC senior team members also serve on several other UK MoD and Australian Army technical and engineering working groups.
DSEI is the largest defence and security event in the world and 2iC is a proud winner of the DSEI Innovation Challenge. In selecting 2iC, the judges acknowledged the importance of 2iC’s software innovation for future interoperability for both UK forces and coalition partners.
As well as in the Defence and Security sector, the 2iC software and toolset can be used by Equipment Manufacturers and System Integrators to maximise digital interoperability in sectors such as Emergency Services, malaria control, health care and others.
Innovative, 2iC software-based solutions in such sectors are already launched or in development.
