The article highlights the major concepts of eyetem integration in military environment, especially the NATO Netwok Enabled Capability and Federal Mission Networking. Both concepts were implemented into the Czech Armed Forces and adapted to fit their ambitions, possibilities, tasks and specific goals. The primary goal of this adoption was to achieve the capabilities to wotk in a coalition environment. The experiences from Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaisance integration projects are presented in the second part of the article.
