 What is FMN?

A governed conceptual framework consisting of people, processes and technology to plan, prepare, establish, use and terminate Mission Networks in support of federated operations. FMN is built on lessons learned from the Afghanistan Mission Network (AMN) implementation and on the NATO Network Enabling Capability (NNEC) Programme. It is based on trust, willingness and commitment.​


​An association of NATO, NATO nations and non-NATO entities participating in missions, each retaining control of their own capabilities and affairs while accepting and complying with the requirements as laid out in the pre-negotiated and agreed arrangements. A federation is not hierarchical.

 FMN Affiliate

​Organization or nation that performs enduring activities to maintain and further develop the capabilities required to establish and operate mission networks. FMN Affiliates will routinely take part in verification, validation and collective training events to ensure their forces and assets remain fully interoperable and once they have reached the level of compliance required for the federation of Mission Networks, may become Mission Network Participants. ​

 FMN Framework

​A governed, managed, all-inclusive structure providing processes, plans, templates, enterprise architectures, capability components and tools needed to plan, prepare, develop, deploy, operate, evolve and terminate Mission Networks in support of Alliance, and multinational operations in dynamic, federated environments.

The FMN Framework is providing a permanent ongoing foundation to ensure that mission networks are established and managed efficiently for the purpose of operations, exercises, training or interoperability verifications.
