Tacteris selected by DND to develop military logistics software

Tacteris to provide adaptive logistics planning technology in support of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) mission
CALGARY, Jun. 14, 2021 – Tacteris Systems (“Tacteris”), today announced that it was awarded a Phase 1 contract by the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) to develop and deliver a software solution for the “Fast and adaptive logistics planning military missions” challenge of the Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program.
Tacteris will develop Forte™, a secure, cloud-based application purpose-built for military logistics planning. Forte™ will address key capability gaps identified by DND, enabling planners to create baseline logistics plans and investigate the effects of foreseeable issues on those plans. The Forte™ application will be fully integrated with Tacteris’s existing Maestro™ technology which provides 3D mission planning, battle management, and situational awareness capabilities.
“By combining the logistics capabilities of Forte™ with the operational planning capabilities of Maestro™,  we can deliver a solution at a mature technical readiness level,” said Sean Dunn, CEO of Tacteris. "We have exciting plans to develop novel visualizations, predictive algorithms, and other decision-support capabilities to support logisticians across the full-spectrum of the CAF mission."
