Business cards changed hands and networking took place at any given opportunity. The SitaWare User Forum in Slovenia gathered more than 20 nations willing to share knowledge, experience and visions for the future.

Ireland took to the stage during the event in Ljubljana and shared hands-on experience of the Irish Air Corps SitaWare program, from development through to implementation.

“I use the forum to share knowledge, experience and networking, but also to identify SitaWare use best practice and exchange ideas,” says Noel Barbour, Commandant, OiC Technical Services Flight, CIS Squadron, Irish Air Corps.

During a previous Systematic SitaWare User Forum, Ireland held inspiring discussions with other nations.

“Ireland met on a bi-lateral basis with some other nations to discuss and advance capability following the last 2014 event, underscoring the usefulness of the forum to attendees,” says Brian Mathews, Lieutenant Commander, Naval Computer Centre.

They both agree that the need to share is greater than the need to know, and emphasise that Ireland is in Slovenia to share their knowledge.

”This event is a good opportunity to share ideas and experience. There is no doubt that participants inspire and learn from each other,” says Ken Amidon, US Army Engineering Research and Development Center. “In my opinion it will be very powerful to both the participants and Systematic to have a virtual forum between the forums, where we can continue to share ideas, experience and challenges,” says Ken Amidon.

“The SitaWare User Forum is a great place for the industry to meet the users. We get a lot of information and have the opportunity to discuss requirements and needs. Furthermore, it is very exciting to learn from so many different nations,” says Enrico Raue.

The high level of engagement from the participants is key to the success of SitaWare User Forum.

“In Systematic, we strive to create a forum where experiences, information and ideas can be shared across nations, units and industries. We are listening and adapting to what we hear. By working together we can make a difference, and we are looking forward to seeing you all in 2017,” says Hans Jørgen Bohlbro, Director Business Development & Sales, C2 Systems Defence.
