The CCDCOE in Tallinn is not a NATO facility. It is not under the NATO command structure but it is accredited by NATO. It has people in it from Sweden, Finland, Austria and Switzerland. It involves a number of nations co-operating, but it is not run by NATO. We have somebody out there. It is mostly a research facility. Due to the fact that international co-operation is so critical to making progress against cybercriminals, it is a place where experts in the field can work together and develop techniques and skills to be able to fight the criminals. I think that is all I can say about it. Nearly everything it does is published so it is not, in any sense, a secret facility or anything like that.

There was a question then about Sensor, was that it?
