Canada’s CH-47F Chinooks debut Terma systems

19th August 2013 - 17:42 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Royal Canadian Air Force’s new CH-47F Chinook helicopters are the first aircraft to be equipped with the Aircraft Survivability Equipment (ASE) integrator, supplied by Terma in agreement with prime contractor Boeing.

Boeing delivered the first of 15 new CH-47F Chinook helicopters to Canada in June fitted with the Electronic Warfare Management System (EWMS) integrator, which features dual cockpit displays and integrates multiple warning and countermeasure systems to provide aircrews with advanced protection. 

Gwen Kopsie, vice president of International Strategic Partnerships for Boeing Defense, Space and Security, said: ‘Terma has played a key role in supporting several Boeing products. Our long-standing partnership with Terma and Danish industry has proved successful for the country’s aerospace industry as well as for Boeing.’

Jørn Henrik Levy Rasmussen, vice president, Terma Global, added: ‘Boeing is an important strategic partner to Terma, and we are proud of our long-term collaboration. As a renowned technology company, we are pleased to once again demonstrate our capabilities as a trusted ASE supplier to the global air framers, and we look forward to our continued partnership with Boeing on the Chinooks and a number of other programmes.’  

The Chinook is a multi-mission, heavy-lift transport helicopter. Its primary mission is to move troops and supplies, but it also can be used for medical evacuation, disaster relief, search and rescue, and other military and civilian missions.
