Advanced IT solutions are playing an ever greater role in the day-to-day performance of security services and armed forces. Our experience in the creation of scalable architectures and resilient operations, combined with controlled functionality and access to data, makes CRITICAL Software a natural partner for clients with demanding requirements in this sector.

We have an extensive skills base that supports our participation in highly-demanding projects for air, land and naval defences. We work with defence ministries in several countries, supporting the efficient implementation of command and control systems, training and simulation systems, integrated logistics support systems and condition-monitoring infrastructures.

We provide full strategic, tactical and operational integration from high command to the theatre of operations and the sharing of a common operational picture for all air, land and naval units. Our systems cover headquarter management, right through to battlefield management, including dismounted soldier systems.

We cooperate closely with professionals from the armed forces to enable both private and governmental organisations to effectively and efficiently meet their safety, security and environmental protection requirements. Our aim is to deliver fully-integrated, mission-specific applications with new and innovative capabilities, while accounting for and integrating existing standalone legacy systems.

Our systems support new defence contracting paradigms such as Contracting for Availability (CfA), Performance-Based Logistics (PBL), Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM), end-to-end supply chain integration. Our expertise boosts the overall operational efficiency of defence organisations and improves fleet readiness and availability while significantly lowering the cost of asset ownership.

EyeCommand is a Command & Control (C4I) suite that gives military forces complete information superiority on the battlefield. Fully-compliant with NATO-standards and designed in conjunction with military experts, EyeCommand provides enhanced situational awareness across all levels of the command chain, providing a common operational picture that enables faster and better decisions in the heat of battle.

EyeCommand is made up of three unique, integrated and scalable platforms. Military organisations can combine all of these platforms, for maximum strategic effectiveness, or take a one-platform-at-a-time approach to assist with their tactical operations.

  • Vantage: Designed for battalion level and above, providing headquarters with command & control, information superiority and communications tools, such as Tactical Data Links and ISTAR capabilities.
  • Battlefront: Designed to support company and platoon levels of the command chain and optimised for use on board vehicles, with extensive support features for infantry, cavalry, artillery and reconnaissance.
  • Groundforce:Simple to use and designed for lightweight devices and small screens, supporting dismounted soldiers engaged in operations.

With EyeCommand, the battlefield is fully-digitised, providing information superiority and an up-to-date picture that’s tailored for each military command level, coalition partner and non-military organisation. Commands can be issued in real-time using an easy-to-use interface that’s been designed in close cooperation with military experts.

The result: fast operational deployment and reaction times and tactical agility that – in the heat of battle – saves lives.
