Systematic awarded contract from US Army
The commercial-off-the-shelf command and control system is designed to provide improved situational awareness at all levels of command, as well as easier cooperation with other forces.
In addition to an open architecture which allows for integration with legacy and third party systems, SitaWare has built-in support for international information exchange standards providing advanced interoperability with international allies and interoperability between US forces.
Rafael Torres, president, Systematic, said: 'SitaWare meets most of the army's C4I requirements straight out-of-the-box.
'With this award, SitaWare will become a key component of the army common operating environment, and Systematic will work with mission command and industry partners to develop a common framework to enhance interoperability between US and coalition partners.'
