The Lithuanian Armed Forces has taken a major step in digitising their Land Forces with the purchase of the battle management system, SitaWare.
The Ministry of National Defence of the Republic of Lithuania has selected Systematic as a new supplier of IT solutions to the Lithuanian Land Forces. With SitaWare Headquarters and SitaWare Frontline, the Lithuanian Land Forces get a command and control system that provides soldiers with great situational awareness at the tactical level, as well as easier cooperation with other forces and greater security.
“We are proud to announce our first contract within the Baltic area. Taking the SitaWare Suite into use, the Lithuanian Land Forces will be able to cooperate easily with their coalition partners. The U.S. Army recently bought the SitaWare solution – and as an active member of NATO, Lithuania will definitely benefit from this,” Merja Annala, President of Systematic Oy Finland, explained.
The Lithuanian Land Forces is looking forward to working with Systematic in rolling out this system: “We have seen SitaWare in use in a number of exercises and also used it ourselves in some international exercises. We really like how easy it is to use the system and the fact that it is an interoperable system. As a NATO country, the interoperability is very important to us. Furthermore, we wanted a solution that was already working, so we did not have to start developing something ourselves,” Major Nerijus Sivickas from the Lithuanian MoND, explained.
The Lithuanian Armed Forces will roll out the system in its Land Forces’ units, which will include integration of their new battle management system with their BOXER vehicles, artillery command and control vehicles and Harris radios.
