Welcome to Schoonen Consulting,
Currently, the Defence community is faced with a number of major challenges, with ever-shrinking budgets, growing and changing requirements and delays in a number of large programs. At the same time, these are extremely interesting times, with a number of large NATO projects, such as the Air Command and Control System (ACCS) nearing its completion, the Bi Strategic Command Automated Information System (Bi-SC AIS) functional services, including the Air Command and Control Information System (Air C2 IS) and the Intelligence Functional Services (Intel FS) going on contract, and a number of exercises being conducted to ensure these future systems are integrated seamlessly into the existing NATO infrastructure. Due to the combination of these extremely important and interesting large-scale projects and the increasing challenges, the need for expertise on NATO and NATO processes in general, and Theatre Missile Defence (TMD) mission area specifically, has never been greater.
After having been employed by the NATO C3 Agency for over nine years, and after having been involved in various NATO - TMD projects for almost fifteen years, André Schoonen, who is considered one of the major NATO – TMD subject matter experts, founded Schoonen Consulting. Schoonen Consulting provides consultancy support to industry for any NATO-related project, with a special focus on TMD-related subjects. Schoonen Consulting can provide support in the following areas:
