This report presents structuring guidelines for the technical reference architecture for information and communication technology (ICT) in the Norwegian Defence. The overall structure highlights the different areas that needs to be adressed as part of the technical reference architecture that is going to be astablished and maintained. The areas are: IT services and applications which focuses on the structuring and description of software systems. Communication infrastructure which focuses on the structuring and description of communication infrastructure that enables software systems to be distributed and communicate. Non-functional aspects (NFAs) which determine important qualities of the ICT system cut across the IT service and applications and the communication infrastructure. The two aspects management and security are part of the overall structure. Interoperability which focuses on structuring and description of systems interoperability, i.e., the ability of two are more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged. Deployment platform which focuses on the structuring and description of capabilities and constraints of physical assets such as weapon systems, sensors and hardware platforms.
