Command-and-control in the air domain is arguably more challenging than any other. Operations are conducted at a high tempo and commanders draw on large volumes of often disparate and complex data in making their decisions. The advent of fifth generation aircraft and proliferation of ever more sophisticated weapon systems is only adding to the difficulties that commanders face.
The ability to develop a comprehensive and clear picture of the battlespace can be a force multiplier for commanders and is critical to ensuring the safety of assets and the effective application of resources.
With multinational operations the norm rather than the exception, interoperability with partners and exchanging critical mission data is also a must.
SitaWare in the Air Domain
Systematic’s SitaWare Headquarters software presents commanders with a detailed, 3D appreciation of the area of operations and displays information in a clear and easy to understand format.
The software can draw on a wide range of data in generating the Recognised Air Picture, including aircraft tracks from ADS-B, radar data, environmental and weather overlays, and air traffic control information, among others.
Furthermore, leveraging SitaWare’s proven utility in the land and maritime domains, air component commanders can easily gain a comprehensive understanding of these domains and access information that can be critical to their missions, such as the location and capabilities of ground-based air defence systems.
