The Australian Army has procured e-learning software from the firm, designed to support C2 systems training.

Systematic has delivered an e-learning software package to the Australian Army for the SitaWare Headquarters, in a bid to support “best-in-class” command-and-control (C2) system training.

The online training course — now in service with the Deployable Joint Force Headquarters (DJFHQ) — was selected by Army’s Land Network Integration Centre in 2019 to support its interim Track Management Capability (TMC).

TMC aims to bolster coalition interoperability by consolidating information from battle management systems (BMS) to produce the ‘Common Tactical Picture’ and ‘Recognised Ground Picture’.

“The restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic were preventing staff from the Land Network Integration Centre deploying to train personnel,” David Horton, Systematic vice president for the Asia-Pacific region, said.  

“Through the e-learning course, students are able to familiarise themselves with SitaWare Headquarters prior to more in-depth training.”

According to Horton, the software, initially selected to deliver ‘just-in-time’ training for a series of exercises, simulates a realistic scenario, enabling students to work through the courseware via the real system interface.

“[The] training combines passive learning in the form of explanatory videos, with multiple-choice assessments and periods for reflection,” he said.

Students can access the course remotely and independently, with instructor support provided when necessary.

Users are also provided with the option of revisiting the course upon completion.

“We are now in the process of evolving our e-learning offerings to include more functionality and interactivity for students,” Horton added.
