The Royal Danish Navy (RDN) will deploy with Systematic's SitaWare Headquarters (HQ) command-and-control (C2) software in early 2019, as the service takes command of the Standing NATO Mine Countermeasures Group One (SNMCMG1), which is one of four groups that comprise the core of the maritime component of NATO's Very High Readiness Joint Task Force.HDMS Thetis will be equipped with SitaWare HQ C2 software to provide command support tools and the Recognised Maritime Picture while flagship for SNMCMG1.

SitaWare HQ will be installed in HDMS Thetis , an ocean patrol frigate that is acting as the flagship for the MCM group. "In addition to providing advanced command-and-control and planning tools for the MCM mission, the software will present a comprehensive Recognised Maritime Picture to commanders," said Stig Meyer, product manager and maritime domain expert at Systematic.

The RDN has been conducting trials using SitaWare, which have involved combining operational data from multiple sources with a number of standards, primarily MIP, OTH-Gold, NVG, JREAP, NFFI, and geospatial data. SitaWare HQ is being fielded across the majority of the RDN's combatants, as well as at two shore-based sites. The RDN is also in the process of examining the utility of the tactical-level SitaWare Frontline and has deployed it with platforms patrolling arctic waters.

For this deployment the capability will be provided on a standalone terminal using a multi-classification domain arrangement, but Meyer noted that there is the potential for SitaWare HQ to be integrated within a ship's command system architecture at a later stage.
