Boeing, Danish Software Firm Sign MoUs

Boeing and Systematic A/S, a systems integration and software development company based in Aarhus, Denmark, signed three agreements outlining future areas of business cooperation.

Boeing said the agreements support its proposal for the Royal Danish Air Force’s New Combat Aircraft competition. Boeing’s F/A-18E/F Super Hornet is one of three finalists for the competition, with the Lockheed Martin F-35 and Saab Gripen NG.

In the first of three memoranda of understanding (MoU), Boeing subsidiary Insitu and Systematic agreed to explore software development and integration applications for the Insitu family of unmanned aircraft systems, including ScanEagle and Integrator.

In the second MOU, Boeing Defence United Kingdom Ltd., and Systematic agreed to consider opportunities for collaboration in the development of a ground forces interoperability lab as well as command and control solutions for land, sea and air domains.

The third memorandum outlines opportunities in advanced research in electronic warfare technology, as well as in applying the Systematic’s “SitaWare” command and control solutions and IRIS product line of interoperability and military messaging standards to Boeing platforms.
