The Royal Danish Navy (RDN) will equip HDMS Thetis with Systematic’s SitaWare Headquarters software in 2019, as the service takes command of the Standing NATO Mine Countermeasures Group One (SNMCMG1).

HDMS Thetis is an ocean patrol frigate that will act as the flagship for the MCM group. The Systematic capability will be provided on a standalone terminal in this deployment and the software may also be integrated within the ship’s systems architecture at a later stage. The C2 software will be used as a staff-level planning tool for the NATO task group.

RDN personnel have already undergone training at Systematic’s headquarters in Aarhus.

SNMCMG1 is one of four groups that comprise the core of the maritime component of the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force to the NATO Response Forces. The Standing NATO Maritime Groups are a multinational,  integrated maritime force made up of vessels from various allied countries.

The MCM group undertakes active mine-hunting and disposal operations, mainly in the Baltic Sea where ordnance from the Second World War continues to pose a threat to shipping.
