Elbit Systems UK, a subsidiary of Israel's Elbit Systems, announced last week that it took part in NATO’s Coalition Warrior Interoperability Exercise (CWIX) 2021, deploying the company's TORCH-X based Battle Management Application (BMA) system to support UK Higher Headquarters preparedness activities for Five Eyes and NATO operations.

The purpose of the exercise, which was held in June at the Joint Force Training Centre in Bydgoszcz, Poland, was to test and develop interoperability between deployed national and NATO communication and information systems in a coalition environment. Some 28 nations participated, conducting over 10,000 technical interoperability tests across the land, maritime, air and cyber environments. During CWIX 2021, Elbit Systems UK's team worked alongside the 13 Signals Regiment and staff from the Land Systems Reference Centre to successfully deliver interoperability assessments of the TORCH-X based BMA during the exercise, the company said.

Elbit Systems UK was selected by the UK Ministry of Defence in 2018 to provide the British Army with the TORCH-X based BMA for the Morpheus program. The company reported that it recently delivered, ahead of schedule, the 11th software drop of the BMA under the program.
