Norway selects Thurbon EW data management system
MASS’ Thurbon electronic warfare (EW) data management system has been selected by the Norwegian Defence Material Agency, the company announced on 1 November.
The system will provide enhanced capability for the Norwegian armed forces, giving it effective control and autonomy over data, and efficient use of resources in the preparation of mission data for EW equipment.
The system will also allow fragmented information, which exists between the multiple databases that support each equipment purchase, to be brought together, enabling enhanced management of operational data.
Chris Stanley, managing director of MASS, said: ‘MASS has provided independent and agnostic EW operational support for thirty years, helping nations to increase their capabilities and enhance their effectiveness through the exploitation of their own data.
‘Thurbon will provide the Norwegian armed forces with the capability to specify, produce, validate and disseminate accurate, timely and relevant data. We’re pleased to be supporting the Norwegian armed forces commander in providing a solution to make sense of the congested and contested operational environment to increase the situational awareness of the Norwegian forces.’
