Atos launches its digital battle management solution at the Eurosatory International Defence and Security Trade Show
The Bull BMS solution (Battle Management System) offers tactical superiority on the battlefield
Paris, 14 June 2016
Atos, through its commercial brand Bull, launches the Bull Battle Management System (BMS). Bull BMS is a complete solution that optimises real-time information sharing for land and air-land combat, throughout entire battalions (at HQ, inside vehicles and for the dismounted soldiers) and for all mission types.
A single system within battalions for all levels of the chain of command and all roles. It allows rapid creation of combined arms battle groups, which can share information about the mission effectively, even in degraded network conditions.
It has optimal ergonomics making it easy to learn and use. The highly intuitive user interface is similar to those of civilian tools. Thus it has high tolerance for manual entry and it automates the capture of data, two major advantages on the battlefield.
The solution has a level of technical neutrality which means it can be easily adapted to the national choice of equipment – such as tactical radio, vehicles, vetronics, operating systems and connected armaments. Atos establishes partnerships with the local ecosystem of defence industries.
Relying on a shared software base and open architecture, Atos develops a national solution in close collaboration with its clients. It allows specific elements to be taken into account regarding the doctrine of use, the geographic and linguistic context and the order of battle.
Bull BMS at the heart of the Scorpion programme with SICS (Scorpion Combat Information System). In France, Scorpion is a vast armament programme under the project management of the French Armament Procurement Agency (DGA) aiming at updating the equipment of Tactical Inter-Army Groups (GTIA) of the French Land Forces. SICS provides digital combat management at the heart of Scorpion. Based on Bull BMS, SICS makes it possible to share digitally all the tactical information available on the battlefield. SICS will be deployed within the French armed forces from 2017.
“With Bull BMS, soldiers can focus on their mission while benefitting from the power of digitalization. The system considerably accelerates decision-making and gives priority to action. The sharing of strategic information in reflex time gives battalions an advantage in terms of autonomy, responsiveness and protection, which visibly and durably changes the tactical situation on the ground” said Pierre Barnabé, SVP Managing Director, Big Data & Security at Atos.
Meet Atos at Eurosatory from 13 to 17 June 2016, Hall 5 – Stand B328. Atos will showcase Bull BMS as well as its solutions for homeland security, border protection and IT security.
