The demographic patterns show a rapid influx of human populations to the cities owing to financial, social, medical and other factors. To accommodate the unprecedented rise in population, city administrations around the world are looking for appropriate solutions to cope with the rising challenges. One of the approaches is to make the cities smarter and thus improving the organization, administration and availability of services and resources. In such a Smart City, a large spectrum of deployed sensors and smart objects record, analyse and exchange data. The collected information is processed, forwarded and analyzed in order to implement applications and services that alleviate the city's organization and management or provide additional benefit to the inhabitants. Also with the growing population, it becomes more complex to protect and serve the city's inhabitants and their assets in cases of emergency and adversities such as natural disasters, terrorist and insurgent attacks. In these cases, an existing Smart City infrastructure can greatly assist emergency forces like relief units or supporting military forces by providing the data it already has. In order to incorporate the additional data of the Smart City into the situational picture of the operational forces, suitable points of integration have to be defined and implemented. In this paper, we examine whether existing data models used in the military domain are suitable to integrate the additional Smart City data into the military information domain. In particular, we focus on standardized data models and distribution methods used in federated mission networking within NATO. This ensures a high compatibility to existing situational awareness and information processing applications that are used by the different NATO nations.
