Key benefits

The SitaWare Fire Support module acts as an add-on to the combat-proven SitaWare battle management system, and allows for seamless integration of fire support from a forward observer through to a gun crew and fire support elements on all organisational levels. This integration means that a single platform can provide full mission planning and execution capabilities, as well as enhanced situational awareness for fire support teams.

With the need for modern fires assets to be increasingly mobile and dispersed, the SitaWare Fire Support module can be fielded by highly mobile forward observers and gun crews using SitaWare Frontline, with support from command posts acting as Fire Support Elements using SitaWare Headquarters.

SitaWare Fire Support integrates a number of military standards and processes into its operations, including the NATO SG2 Shareable Software Suite (S4) for ballistic and meteorological calculations in calculating fires missions.

Integrated fires support

One software suite to plan, co-ordinate, and assign fires missions.

Deconfliction and Clearance to Fire

Visualisation and differentiate of targets, prioritisation, airspace deconfliction, and safe distances.

Common interface for all users

Non-artillery specific information shared with other SitaWare users through the common interface.

Proven communications backbone

SitaWare Tactical Communication provides a reliable protocol for information flows.

Key standards support

Employing parts of NATO’s NABK and NAMK standards to perform ballistic calculations.

ASCA compliant

Deliver effects from coalition partners using the Artillery Systems Cooperation Activities (ASCA) gateway.
