At Critical Software, we understand the importance of safety in mission-critical systems. We are experts in software architecture, system testing and the development and certification of embedded safety-critical applications to the most rigorous standards such as Defence Standard 00-56, MIL-STD-499 and DO-178C.

We have worked alongside military experts to create a state-of-the-art command and control (C4I) suite that provides information superiority on the battlefield. This results in more informed, faster decision-making when it matters.

Software systems for reduced de-briefing times

At a time when process efficiency matters more than ever, saving time is vital. We created a ground-based suite of tools for a cutting-edge Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS), reducing deployment times and costs.

Command and control systems for demanding military operations

Critical Software is recognised as a leading developer of C4ISR systems in the defence sector.

Working in close cooperation with armed forces professionals, our engineers are able to combine their software and systems expertise with a real-world understanding of military requirements to provide efficient and cost-effective C4ISR solutions.

Once the system is up and running, we provide full lifecycle support, complete with the availability, maintainability, and operational expertise expected by armed forces personnel and systems.

Solutions for enhanced battlefield situational awareness

Critical Software’s EyeCommand suite enhances situational awareness across all levels of the command chain and is fully compliant with NATO standards.

Designed in conjunction with military experts, the suite combines three integrated and scalable platforms to provide a 360° view of the battlefield. The solution is tailored to each military command level or can be used on a platform-by-platform basis to improve tactical operations.
