Systematic and MASA Group Investigate Using NATO's C-BML in C2 Systems Integrated with Constructive Simulations
- The project partners are set to establish a generic methodology to enable Multilateral Interoperability Programme (MIP)-based Command and Control (C2) systems to drive simulation systems using digitised orders and NATO's Coalition Battle Management Language (C-BML).
Systematic’s SitaWare Headquarters C2 software will be integrated with MASA SWORD automated, aggregated constructive simulation through a prototype C-BML interface.
This 18-months project involving the Danish Defence, Systematic and MASA Group will assess the current C-BML standard and propose recommendations to NATO’s Modelling & Simulation Group 085 for enabling a more powerful integration between C2 systems and simulators.
A basic integration of the two COTS products, SWORD and SitaWare Headquarters, was shown at ITEC in London last month and can be seen during Eurosatory (June 11-15, 2012) at Systematic’s stand (Hall 6, stand #C57) and MASA Group’s stand (Hall 5, stand #J108). It demonstrates how non-manned units can be commanded in the training scenario and test different courses of action against each other.
SWORD is empowered by a doctrine-compliant intelligent automation that allows the set-up of small to large scale exercises. The units are driven by customizable adaptive behaviours, ensuring maximum realism while requiring less human controllers, now fully focused on the core training job.
The C-BML project will deliver its first demonstrator at I/ITSEC in December 2012 and will have the final demonstrator ready in 2013.
