The South African Army will receive the first operational variants of the SAAB Chaka, a brigade-and-below command-and-control (C2) system, next year.

The system was ordered in July 2008 with an initial equipment order for three simultaneous peacekeeping operations and one training exercise.

Chaka is based on a brigade-level wargaming solution called the BattleTek, which will enable a commander with situational awareness to electronically plan, send and control the execution of operations.

The system architecture consists of nine static C2 systems to support the brigade staff, 40 mobile C2 systems to support battalion and company commanders, and 48 Impi location sensors to track blue force units of all sizes.

The R30m ($4.3m) systems will be installed on selected Ratel, Casspir and LandRover command vehicles.
