Systematic and Bundeswehr sign seven-year Maintenance Framework Contract
The Bundeswehr has taken a leap forward in its digitalisation transformation programme with the signing of a significant framework agreement with Systematic.
The new agreement, which is a seven-year maintenance contract, represents a major milestone in the digitalisation efforts of the Bundeswehr, as it will ensure their SitaWare software is kept up-to-date with the ever-evolving product roadmap.
Systematic’s SitaWare Headquarters, an interoperable C4ISR software solution, and SitaWare Frontline, a battle management application designed for the tactical level, as well as IRIS military messaging products are already in use in Germany, and implemented, as part of the Mission Enabling Service Bundeswehr [MESBw].
Future-proofing the Bundeswehr
“It is a huge commitment from the Bundeswehr to its on-going digitalisation,” said Sven Trusch, Managing Director of Systematic’s German subsidiary. “Today, SitaWare Headquarters and SitaWare Frontline are available to a large number of users through MESBw.
“We are delighted to be continuing our work with the Bundeswehr through this contract, which represents both the strength of our existing partnership, but also our ongoing commitment to the future of the German Armed Forces.”
One notable advantage of the agreement is that it also grants the Bundeswehr an opportunity to influence Systematic's future roadmap for the SitaWare Suite. Their insights, requirements, and feedback will play a pivotal role in shaping the development of future iterations and updates to the products.
Moreover, this collaboration will have a significant impact on the broader SitaWare community of more than 50 user nations, of which 15 are NATO alliance member states. With the Bundeswehr's active involvement, the SitaWare Suite will continue to evolve and address the operational needs of diverse defence forces, promoting enhanced interoperability, streamlined command and control capabilities, and optimised situational awareness.
"We are honoured to have the Bundeswehr's trust and confidence in our software," added Mr Trusch. "Their partnership and influence on our future roadmap will have far-reaching benefits for the whole SitaWare community."
