Terma signs DALO EW contract
Terma has announced that it has signed a contract with the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) for the upgrading of the Electronic Warfare (EW) suite on the Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF) Westland 101 Merlin helicopter (EH-101) fleet.
The equipment includes the Terma Electronic Warfare Management System ALQ-213, Tactical Threat Displays, Tactical Data Unit, and pods integrated with the Advanced Counter Measure Dispensers (ACMDS) and Missile Warning Sensors. Terma will deliver the complete system integration task including design, manufacturing, and final certification onto the EH-101 platform.
Terma delivered the current EW installation back in 2003/04, when the helicopters were delivered to the Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF). RDAF has a total of 14 EH-101 helicopters. Eight are dedicated to Search & Rescue (SA) missions, while six are to be used for Tactical Troop Transport (TTT) tasks.
According to the company, the EW upgrade programme will be carried out during 2013 with delivery from Terma to DALO at the end of 2013.
