Released on Monday, October 8, 2007
BMS - Battle Management System
DGA - Délégation Générale pour l'Armement
MBT - Main Battle Tank
The French Defence Procurement Agency (DGA) formally qualified the NEXTER Battle Management System SIT V1 on 31st August 2007.

This qualification is the result of the successful operational trials, conducted with a squadron of the 1st Foreign Legion Cavalry Regiment, on upgraded AMX 10 RC, VB2L and VBL (armoured cars).

The overseas operations of this regiment in Ivory Coast also confirmed the outstanding performance of the SIT V1 BMS, notably its easy operation and the operational advantage it provides. The contract signed with the DGA covers the equipping of 650 French Army combat or command vehicles with the SIT V1.

As of today, more than 150 systems are already in service, on the Leclerc MBT, the AMX10RC, the VBL and the VB2L. The qualification of the SIT V1 BMS and its integration into the overall command chain has transformed battlefield digitisation into reality.
