Battle Command Information System  (SIC)

Thales Group

SIC Terre program will introduce higher levels of automated information exchange, improving networking through all level of command, and enhance interoperability within national, multinational and NATO operations. The system will provide the transition platform supporting the migration of 14 French Army's and national legacy systems into future information systems. The system will provide common operating modules, secured IP based communications and common display infrastructure shared through all levels of command. These modules will support the future generation of SICF (Système d'Information et de Commandement of the Forces )– the French strategic command, control and information system. The new architecture is expected to further extend to improve the future Naval information system used by the French Navy. In January 2005 the French defense procurement agency (DGA) awarded Thales a €230 million contract for the SIC Terre of program, developing an information and communication system for the French Army. Thales subcontracted EADS DCS 30% of the contract.
