BAE Systems is a leading supplier and integrator of Combat Management Systems and INTeACT is the name of its next generation CMS. The INTeACT Software Development Kit (SDK) will be available to download from 16 September.

It uses open systems architectures to ensure that state-of-the-art technologies can be adopted quickly to enhance overall ship capability and provide unrivalled information superiority.

INTeACT provides warship crews with all the information they need to track, analyse and respond to threats, as well as the ability to coordinate resources in other operations such as intelligence gathering and humanitarian assistance, both independently or as part of a multinational coalition.

SDK provides a toolset that includes software libraries, developer documentation, code samples and guides to help develop and integrate new apps.

Release 1 will allow the user to receive and visualise the tactical picture, insert OARIS sensor tracks, support tactical picture compilation with recommended track identities, recommend track correlation and de-correlation, raise and cancel user-alerts using the ALMAS interface and create test scenarios using the graphical scenario editor.

BAE Systems launched The Source, a newsletter which will be the definitive place to find the latest information on the INTeACT Software Development Kit (SDK).  The Source will provide news details of upcoming events and highlights of the feedback and experiences from across the community of using the INTeACT SDK.

“We would encourage you to get creative and think about how the SDK could help you further your application development plans. In our developing marketplace where we are focussed on configuring future technologies into the design of ship systems, we’d like to reach out to see what different sectors have to offer. We are interested in dynamic SMEs who are operating at pace within sectors like connected health, digital transport, optimising city applications, data analytics and practitioners in Artificial Intelligence (AI). Your organisation may have a concept to table or a grounded solution in your sector that could apply to the maritime environment.”
