DUBLIN, Calif. -- iAnywhere Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), today announced that its SQL AnywhereR Studio database technology has been chosen by General Dynamics UK Ltd (GDUK) as a key component of the UK's Ministry of Defence (MOD) project to revolutionise its battlefield communications systems.

Working with GDUK, iAnywhere plans to implement its industry leading small footprint embedded database into a mobile military solution, as part of the Ministry's BOWMAN CIP project, which will improve communications for the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.

The iAnywhereR solution was chosen because its database technology offered the best results throughout rigorous benchmarking analysis and was the best engineered for the mobile battlefield environment.

Until the introduction of BOWMAN CIP a large proportion of UK Army Command and Control on the battlefield was based on manual processes for the monitoring and planning of deployed forces. These hand written plans, orders and maps meant that there were limitations to sharing information efficiently below Brigade level. At the heart of BOWMAN CIP is a Common Battlefield Applications Toolset (ComBAT) and an information management system that enhance jointly the entire battle interaction for soldiers at all levels, and aid the planning and control of the Battlespace. iAnywhere's role will be to provide the database platform to support the information management of a substantial number of battlefield information system applications (BISAs).
