Poland's armoured forces get Danish defence software in new tanks
With its newly purchased Abrams tanks, Poland has received Systematic's command and control system, SitaWare, which is widely used by NATO and NATO partner countries and increases the possibility of data sharing and cooperation between allies.
Poland has expanded its armoured forces with the purchase of 116 M1A1 and 250 M1A2 SEP V3 Abrams tanks, as well as a number of support vehicles, all of which will be equipped with Systematic's SitaWare Frontline command-control system.
SitaWare Frontline gives soldiers in vehicles an advanced, visual overview of terrain and troops – both own, allied and enemy, and at the same time makes it possible to communicate and share intelligence with other units and command stations.
"Poland's acquisition of SitaWare makes it easier for the defence to increase cooperation and interoperability with the many NATO member states that also use SitaWare. But having said that, SitaWare can also communicate with other similar systems, as the solution is based on open architecture and has a user-friendly design that makes it easy to exchange data between allies. It is a great strength for Europe's security that several countries can easily coordinate their efforts and forces, and thus respond quickly and in a coordinated manner to security threats," says Michael Jungen, Business Development Manager at Systematic.
By acquiring a standard software product like SitaWare, Poland's defense can quickly put the system into use. The large number of users in Europe and the NATO alliance helps to ensure that the software's lifetime and development continue for many years to come.
In addition to the software system in the vehicles, Systematic also provides training, project, and integration support in collaboration with the main US integrator Leonardo DRS.
Facts about the SitaWare suite
Systematic’s C4ISR* solution, SitaWare is created with the aim of increasing the security of deployed soldiers, strengthening alliances, and making it easier to make well-informed decisions in critical situations.
It is a command-and-control system that provides a detailed overview of forces, infrastructure, terrain and buildings in a given area, enabling information sharing, planning, coordination and communication effectively.
SitaWare can be used on land, at sea, in the air, in space and in cyberspace, among all domains and among nations. The system integrates military communications networks, surveillance systems and target designation with analysis and decision support functions and uses artificial intelligence for data processing. It is built with open architecture that makes it easy to integrate with other solutions, and users can create their own plug-ins and add-ons that suit their mission and task requirements.
SitaWare is used by approximately 50 countries worldwide – including most major NATO countries and NATO partner countries, e.g., Australia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Latvia, New Zealand, Sweden, Switzerland, Great Britain, and the United States.
C4ISR: Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance.
The SitaWare Suite includes, among other things:
SitaWare Headquarters – used by commanders in fixed or mobile headquarters and in joint military operations centers.
SitaWare Insight – Intelligence solution for analysis and decision support used as part of SitaWare Headquarters.
SitaWare Frontline – used on a tablet mounted in vehicles.
SitaWare Edge – used on a mobile phone by dismounted soldiers
SitaWare Aspire – digital training, simulation and education platform that provides realistic, 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 soldiers - from enlistment to deployment and as returning veterans.
In addition, Systematic has developed the IRIS suite, which is a secure communication system for defence use.
