Systematic launches new features for SitaWare suite
New features bolster in-app video capabilities, as well as improvements in situational awareness and intelligence sharing.
Tuesday, August 16, 2022
Systematic is pleased to announce the latest updates to its SitaWare suite of products, with major new features in Frontline and Edge allowing users to maximise their situational awareness and share even more intelligence with other operators.
SitaWare Frontline and SitaWare Edge users are now able to watch live video feeds from UAVs within the application; and are able to take snapshots from feeds for sharing through chat attachments. Position information for objects of interest is also automatically added to the image metadata, along with the display of the viewshed information. This allows for the smooth creation of intelligence products and improvements to situational awareness and the recognised intelligence picture. Furthermore, Frontline users can record video streams for later replaying in the app or sharing to other users.
“The ability to manage, process, watch, and share video from the Frontline and Edge platforms is an absolute game-changer in the modern battlespace,” Hans Jørgen Bohlbro, Vice President, Product Management, Defence, said. “In an age where more devices have the ability to transmit video to improve situational awareness to troops on the ground, the ability to distribute precious video intelligence across a wider range of customers helps to support smarter decision-making and support greater understanding of the operational environment.”
Additional video processing and display features of the SitaWare suite are currently being worked on and are expected to be rolled out to users in 2023, Bohlbro added.
Intelligence boost to Headquarters
As part of the update process, SitaWare Headquarters has also received new capabilities, helping to deliver intelligence-led capabilities to users, as well as to its underlying network base.
AI-assisted kinematic track correlation allows for the joint common operating picture to be efficiently compiled when using radars and electronic warfare sensors, using prediction models to remove duplicate tracks, as well as anticipating future moves based on historic track information. Dead-reckoning and furthest-on-circle tools also help to evaluate the likely position of lost tracks, and further help support the use of open-source intelligence tools such as ADS-B and AIS. These new capabilities allow for more intelligent decision-making, as well as ensuring a comprehensive joint common operating picture that is shared across the land, sea, and air domains. Integration with Systematic’s new intelligence platform, SitaWare Insight, also allows seamless gathering, fusion, dissemination, and analysis of data from internal and third-party open sources.
The backbone for SitaWare Headquarters, SitaWare Headquarters Communications (SHC), has also received new capabilities through the upgrades. These include improvements to the synchronisation algorithm to allow for reductions in bandwidth overheads to maintain connections, while retaining high levels of redundancy and optimising network efficiency. This has also helped with scalability improvements, which allow for more nodes in a SHC-based network before the system has to breakup into multiple networks. This also allows for more data to be shared across an SHC network before users experience latency and CPU-load interference.
“Scalability is a key differentiator in the SitaWare suite’s offering. We have the ability to scale upwards and downwards as the user or operation requires and do so with a very small a hardware footprint. These latest improvements to SHC will continue to allow users of our Headquarters product to operate confidently in complex network and operational environments,” Bohlbro said.
