Submission + - US Militairy mIRC being replaced by dutch TITAAN

Joep Gommers writes: "In April of 2006, The Netherlands scouted the allied troops in Afghanistan to see how TITAAN could improve or replace current networks of communications. What they found was the CENTRIXS system, which stands for Combined Enterprise Regional Information Exchange System and is developed by the US. The applications integrated in the CENTRIXS system are MS Outlook, C2PC (out-dated GIS application), IWS (teleconferencing) and mIRC (a chat program to facilitate Command and Control). The dutch are lobbying to replace this outdated system with there state-of-the-art TITAAN communications concept, which is already in use at central command which is lead by Holland."
