Systematic Bridges Interoperability Gap at CWIX 2020

NATO has not let the COVID-19 pandemic stand in the way of its premier interoperability event – the Coalition Warrior Interoperability eXploration, eXperimentation, eXamination eXercise (CWIX) – with the 2020 iteration held virtually, and Systematic has risen to the challenge of working in a distributed manner, successfully demonstrating its Multilateral Interoperability Programme (MIP) 4.3 gateway.

NATO has not let the COVID-19 pandemic stand in the way of its premier interoperability event – the Coalition Warrior Interoperability eXploration, eXperimentation, eXamination eXercise  (CWIX) – with the 2020 iteration held virtually, and Systematic has risen to the challenge of working in a distributed manner, successfully demonstrating its Multilateral Interoperability Programme (MIP) 4.3 gateway.

 

CWIX 2020 has taken place at locations across NATO and partner countries, with the event connecting participants via a range of networks. While a number of aspects of CWIX 2020 were scaled back – notably those that focused on vehicles and forward-deployed applications – most could be undertaken, including proving how Systematic’s MIP 4.3 gateway ensures that forces limited to working with MIP 3.1 systems can operate alongside those deploying with the latest specifications.  

 

The MIP 4.3 gateway was developed for SitaWare Headquarters command and control software as a company-led initiative. The Systematic-designed bridging capabilities of the MIP 4.3 gateway provides assurance for those countries using MIP 3.1. As long as at least one member of a coalition is operating with SitaWare Headquarters, a “bridge” can be made to bring in 3.1 countries and ensure that information exchange can take place with the MIP 4.3 operators. At CWIX 2020 the MIP 4.3 gateway successfully bridged to multiple MIP 3.1 systems and countries, demonstrating the potential for a coalition to work seamlessly.

 

The Systematic SitaWare MIP 4.3 gateway will be integrated into the U.S. Army’s Command Post Computing Environment (CPCE) as part of a regular maintenance update to provide continued interoperability for the Army and coalition partners. SitaWare functions as the backbone for CPCE.
