MOSCOW, November 19. /TASS/. A common information space will be created for the countries affiliated with the Collective Security Treaty Organization (post-Soviet military bloc), the chief of the National Defense Control Centre, Mikhail Mizintsev, said on Thursday.
"Alongside the creation of the CSTO crisis response centre efforts are underway to form an integral information space in the interests of the CSTO member-states," he said.
Certain positive experience was accumulated in the course of last August’s military exercise codenamed Cooperation-2015.
At the CSTO summit in December 2014 Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the National Defense Control Centre would work for all CSTO member-states and enhance the controllability of national defense systems. Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said that Russia would provide assistance to the CSTO allies in creating equivalents of Russia’s defense control centre.
The National Defense Control Centre officially went operational on December 1, 2014. It allows for receiving on-line information about the current situation at every single military unit or facility across the nation. The centre’s data processing complex is capable of modelling situations along Russia’s perimeter borders and at any point around the globe. The overall capacity of the centre’s data processing system is thrice that of the US counterpart and exceeds the capacity of the Pentagon’s data base 20 times.
The Collective Security Treaty Organization incorporates six countries - Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. The Collective security Treaty Organization was concluded in 2002.
