Australian Army adopts SitaWare online training
The Australian Army’s Land Network Integration Centre has selected an e-learning solution from Systematic to train users of the SitaWare Headquarters C2 solution.
SitaWare Headquarters was adopted as an interim Track Management Capability (TMC) in 2019 and it is now in service with the Deployable Joint Force Headquarters.
TMC provides coalition interoperability by consolidating information from battle management systems to produce a common tactical picture and recognised ground picture, along with other functions.
The e-learning solution was initially procured to deliver just-in-time training ahead of a series of exercises. However, Systematic noted on 26 April, restrictions on deploying personnel for training, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, have encouraged wider adoption of SitaWare Headquarters.
Students can access the course remotely and work their way through the syllabus at their own pace with support from instructors. Students may also revisit the course after completion allowing for refresher sessions to occur when required.
Systematic VP for Asia-Pacific David Horton explained how the course is designed, saying: ‘Students work their way through the courseware via the real system interface and the training combines passive learning in the form of explanatory videos, with multiple-choice assessments and periods for reflection.’
