The Northern European Command, Command and Control Information System (NEC CCIS) is a near-realtime NATO Air Command and Control (C2) system operated by NATO, Estonia, Iceland, Lithuania and Norway. The system supports all aspects of air operations from operational level (CAOC/NHQ) to tactical level (WOC/SQOC/GBAD). System Maintenance, Development and Support is provided by NEC CCIS System Support Centre (SSC) Kolsaas, Norway. The Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) for NEC CCIS is owned by NATO and Norway.

The NEC CCIS System Support Centre (SSC) is responsible for the software development and maintenance of NEC CCIS. The SSC performs perfective, adaptive and corrective maintenance of NEC CCIS to ensure compliance with NATO and national operational and technical requirements. The SSC also provides CCIS support to NATO and national units during live operations as well as exercises.

The SSC is located at Kolsås outside Oslo, Norway. It is the only NATO unit still present at Kolsås since the HQ AFNORTH was closed in June 1994.

The SSC is a part of NATO’s Allied Command Operations, and the Commander SSC reports to the Assistant Chief of Staff (ACOS) Strategic Development of Forces (SDF) at SHAPE.
