Allied Codification Publication no. 1 (ACodP-1): This publication is indispensable for developing the automated systems supporting NCS. It is, however, only available to NATO Sponsored countries, which supports the fact that it will be very useful for a country to seek NATO sponsorship quite early in the process. There are, however, a number of publications, which contain enough information for a country to get started.
