Malaysian MoD receives new C2 system
ThalesRaytheonSystems has announced that it has provided the Malaysian Ministry of Defence (MoD) with an enhanced national command and control (C2) system under the Malaysian Air Defense Ground Environment Sector Operations Center III (MADGE) programme. Full system acceptance has now been finalised with the Royal Malaysian Air Force.
According to the company, the MADGE system operates in real-time and features multi-radar tracking and a flexible human-machine interface. The GM 400 radar will provide additional long-range surveillance capabilities for the Royal Malaysian Air Force.
The MADGE programme will provide the Royal Malaysian Air Force with significantly enhanced capabilities. The contract, originally for the addition of a single C2 operations centre and long-range air defence radar, was expanded to include multiple operations centres with either Sector Operations Center or Air Defense Operations Center functionality derived from the Sentry C2 software used by US and Canadian forces.
Kim Kerry, CEO of US Operations for ThalesRaytheonSystems, said: ‘The C2 system we've executed in Malaysia represents technological integration at its best. We worked with our Malaysian customers to integrate their legacy system and have augmented it with proven technologies, such as the Sentry command and control system and the Ground Master 400 (GM 400) radar. The result is a system that reliably and effectively meets their requirements.’
