SOTAS for Danish military vehicles
Thales will deliver its SOTAS vehicle communication system to the Danish armed forces under a framework agreement with the Danish Defence and Logistic Organization (DALO) announced on 11 April.
The seven year contract includes SOTAS systems for wheeled and tracked vehicles in the Danish fleet, along with supporting services.
Delivery is set to commence in 2018, with maintenance technologies to be transferred from Thales activities in the Netherlands to Denmark.
The SOTAS communication systems will join previously delivered systems under an earlier framework agreement.
SOTAS systems are based on a modular, scalable and future-proof open architecture. The modular components can be assembled and scaled to provide configurations to suit different vehicle types and missions.
