The Ministry of Defence has completed the worldwide roll-out of a new secure communication services designed and operated by Capgemini.

The new system – dubbed DD DECS (Defence Diplomacy, Defence Electronic Commerce Service – is designed to support the UK’s peacekeeping missions at British embassies in 120 countries.

DD DECS links defence attachés at the embassies, allowing them to share plans, communications, work programmes and documents in a secure environment. The system will have around 500 main users.

The new services also include an international defence training database to support the MoD’s provision of training for allied armed forces.

DD DECS is based on the MoD’s existing DECS technology platform, initially set up largely to handle e-procurement and provided under a long-term contract from a Capgemini secure data centre. It also incorporates Microsoft SharePoint Server technology.
