Systematic's SitaWare Headquarters (HQ) software has been selected by NATO as its primary command-and-control (C2) solution for land operations.

The software, selected as part of a EUR28.21 million (USD30.47 million) contract, aims to provide the Future Land Command and Control (FLC2) system (Demeter), supporting NATO land forces at strategic and operational levels.

The system is replacing NATO's current Land Command and Control Information System (LC2IS), which has been in service since 2008.

According to a NATO invitation to tender (ITT) published on 3 March 2023, the software selected must be a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution that has already been proven in NATO exercises/operations. It will be required to provide a recognised ground picture, support battlespace management, and facilitate the exchange of information and knowledge across operational domains within the NATO Command Structure (NCS), NATO Force Structure (NFS), and for NATO countries.

Preliminary system acceptance is expected in December 2024 and final system acceptance by February 2026, the ITT detailed.

SitaWare HQ is designed for higher levels of command – typically brigade and above – but can also be used at lower echelons. The software provides C2 and situational awareness and features a range of planning and mission management tools, including a geographic information system (GIS), which visualises the joint common operating picture (COP), terrain analysis, tasking and unit status, and can display videos from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and other mobile platforms.
