What we do in Defence

As the leading provider of advanced defence software, we empower military commanders with unmatched command and control capability – across all allies and domains.

Our core product for the defence sector is SitaWare, the world’s most used command and control (C2) system, currently adopted by 50+ worldwide customers - including most major NATO countries and NATO partner countries.

Building such advanced command and control software is highly complex and brings lots of great technical challenges for our developers of the codebase, ensuring its stability, reliability, and scalability, while needing to create interfaces that seamlessly integrate vast amounts of data from diverse sources, all while operating within constraints such as limited bandwidth.

When working in our Defence unit, most likely one of the products within the SitaWare Suite will be your focus:

  • SitaWare Headquarters – used by commanders in fixed or mobile headquarters and in joint military operations centres.
  • SitaWare Frontline – mobile system installed on touchscreens in vehicles.
  • SitaWare Edge – a hand-held system used on a mobile phone carried by infantry soldiers on the ground.
  • SitaWare Insight – intelligence solution for analysis and decision support, which is used as part of SitaWare Headquarters. SitaWare Insight gathers and compares data from a myriad of sources. The solution also uses AI, for example for identifying different objects and deviations in well-known patterns.
  • SitaWare Aspire – digital training, simulation and educational platform that provides realistic and hands-on experience using the SitaWare suite.
  • SitaWare Battlefield Health – an integrated and specialised military health system that manages health data and improves patient care for a soldier - from enlistment to deployment and as returning veterans.
