06 Oct 08. Systematic and Terma, two international leading suppliers of defense technology, have teamed up to provide the Danish Army with an advanced battle management solution that aims to provide greater awareness, security and protection for soldiers in theatre. The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) announced recently an investment in an advanced Battle Management System (BMS).
The solution is seen as a great leap forward for the Danish soldiers’ ability to exchange information in an operational context. The solution also provides the soldiers with a GPS-based graphical overview of an operational area, where they can see their own units, enemy units, and neutral units in a near real time setting. Having such a detailed situational picture increases efficiency in both the planning and the execution of operations. As the solution is based on international standards, it also provides the Danish Army with the opportunity to share information with other units; both within own forces and with coalition partners.
