Secure information exchange is a key success factor for military operations. International coalition missions are especially challenging because of heterogeneous communication and C2IS equipment. The international project CoNSIS is targeted to fill in technical gaps regarding interoperability which occur in a reference scenario, consisting of a multinational convoy of military and non-governmental vehicles. The convoy forms an ad-hoc radio network and shares a common operational picture with an international headquarter mainly via a satellite link. This paper addresses network management challenges and technical solutions for this federated scenario. Both the core network interconnecting different national headquarters with an international headquarter as well as the ad-hoc radio network of the convoy are addressed in a single, seamless concept. In June 2012, field tests with the convoy were carried out in order to evaluate the different technical solutions.
