Operating a command-and-control system as a dismounted unit brings a number of challenges to the table. Integration, communication, and connectivity are all at the top of the list, and ticking them off is a tricky task.

Click on the video below to hear our domain expert and former IT and Signals Intelligence Officer in the German Armed Forces, Christoph Pauls, explain how SitaWare Edge can turn the obstacles into opportunities, bringing a true operational advantage to the dismounted commander.

Key benefits

SitaWare Edge delivers comprehensive situational awareness and command-and-control (C2) for commanders operating at the tip of the spear. With an advanced mapping system that supports multiple map types in both 2D and 3D, commanders gain a clear understanding of their area of operations.

Planning and geo tools, advanced force tracking, and integrated chat functionality provide an operational advantage. Combined with an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, commanders can then focus on conducting the mission rather than managing the system. And as SitaWare Edge employs Systematic’s SitaWare Tactical Communication (STC) protocol, it is able to transmit large volumes of data over limited bandwidth and in challenging conditions.

SitaWare Edge is part of the SitaWare suite, enabling it to operate seamlessly with the other SitaWare solutions – SitaWare Headquarters, SitaWare Frontline, and SitaWare Insight – as well the military messaging solutions in the IRIS suite. By enabling up-and-down communications, this provides top-to-bottom C4ISR and situational awareness across the battlespace.

Key features

  • Friendly force tracking (FFT)
  • Shared situational awareness
  • Tactical communications
  • High-performance map
  • Identical situational picture across all echelons
  • Video

SitaWare Edge integrates seamlessly with SitaWare Headquarters and SitaWare Frontline, giving top-to-bottom C4ISR and situational awareness across the battlespace.

With a common look-and-feel and aligned symbology across all members of the SitaWare suite, users are assured that the same operating picture is seen at all echelons. This commonality also enables users to easily transition between the different systems, reducing training time and costs, and helping address skills fade. Furthermore, the SitaWare suite is compliant with the latest standards, making it fully interoperable with other systems, coalition partners, and NATO member countries.

With its open architecture and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), SitaWare Edge allows easy integration of a wide variety of data types from different sources, supporting deployed troops in accessing their data needs.

In the section below, you find an overview of some of the most important features in SitaWare Edge. We are more than happy to answer any questions you should have, give a live demo, and discuss how SitaWare Edge can benefit you and your organisation.
