Danish Navy selects Terma radar and C2 systems
Terma radar and command and control (C2) solutions have been selected by the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) for the mid-life upgrade of the Danish Navy’s Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs).
The THETIS-class OPVs are undergoing an upgrade programme over the next four years to ensure their operational service patrolling the Arctic waters surrounding Greenland and The Faroe Islands can continue.
To bring the vessels’ capabilities up-to-date, Terma will supply its SCANTER 4100 radar systems and C-Flex C2 system.
Four SCANTER 4100 radar systems are to be delivered and supported by the company, and the contract includes options for an addition four systems. The first radar must be operational in mid-2014, and the remaining radars towards the end of 2014.
The C-Flex C2 system will replace the ship’s existing solution. C-Flex will support the full mission cycle in maritime domain security and surveillance by integrating the shipboard sensor and weapon systems to generate a real-time situational awareness display that can be shared in full over datalink.
Thomas Blom, vice president, naval, said: ‘We are proud that the Royal Danish Navy once again has selected Terma as their supplier of solutions for the Danish vessels. This is an invaluable sign of trust, and a stamp of quality for our products.’
Terma has already supplied the SCANTER 4100 radar to Royal Navy’s HMS Clyde and the Brazilian Navy’s Amazonas-class.; while C-Flex has been provided for several Royal Danish Navy platforms and supplied in customised versions to the Romanian Navy, the Royal Thai Navy, and other ASEAN countries.
