SitaWare HQ battle management system software from Danish company Systematic has been provided as an interim capability for the Australian Army. It replaces software provided earlier by Elbit Systems at the battle group level and below, under the Land 200 acquisition programme.

Speaking before the Australian Senate Estimates Committee in early June, the Chief of Army, Lt Gen Rick Burr, said that Project Land 200 has been ‘paused’ in operational units because accreditation for Elbit’s 7.1 version of its software — based on the TORC2H system in Israeli service — was due to expire on 30 June 2021 and the version 9.1 software upgrade that was to replace it as part of the Land 200 contract was not ready.

Up until these revelations, there had been speculation as to why the army was removing Elbit BMS software from its units.

Maj Gen Simon Stuart,
