Systematic develops VMF gateway for SitaWare Headquarters

27th November 2018 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Systematic has developed a new variable message format (VMF) gateway for its SitaWare Headquarters C2 software.

The VMF Gateway leverages work conducted by Systematic in conjunction with the Australian Army’s Land Network Integration Centre. That project saw a VMF capability technology demonstrator established which could move information between SitaWare Headquarters and a number of Australian Army systems.

Initial testing of the VMF demonstrator supported 15,000 entities and subsequently grew to 25,000 – a scale that is representative of a coalition and multinational environment.

The new capability is available as an add-on module and provides an interface that enables VMF track data to work across a variety of formats, automatically exchanging Blue and Red pictures.

The gateway enables users to seamlessly convert VMF data to and from Multilateral Interoperability Programme, NATO Friendly Force Information, Over-The-Horizon Gold and Link 16 formats.
