Terma Announces Two Mid-life Upgrade Contracts With the Danish Navy

Sep 10, 2013 ASDNews Source : Terma A/S

 

The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) has chosen Terma’s solutions for its Mid-Life Upgrade of the Danish Navy’s Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs). During the next four years, the THETIS-class OPVs will be updated with the SCANTER 4100 radar and the C-Flex command & Control System.

 

Terma will deliver four SCANTER 4100 radar systems, with an option for an additional four systems. The additional systems are aimed at training at the Danish Navy’s schools, as well as extra systems for the KNUD RASMUSSEN-class OPVs, which the Danish government in 2012 decided to expand with an additional ship. Furthermore, Terma is to support the deliveries with spare parts and technical preparedness.

 

Thomas Blom, Vice President, Naval, is very pleased with contract: “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”.

 

The first radar must be operational in mid-2014, and the remaining radars towards the end of 2014. Among others, Terma has already supplied the SCANTER 4100 radar to Royal Navy’s HMS Clyde and the Brazilian Navy’s Amazonas-class.

 

The C-Flex Command & Control system will replace the ship’s existing C3 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 confident situational awareness display that can be shared in full over datalink.

 

Today, the Terma C-Flex is the preferred solution across the Royal Danish Navy’s platforms and supplied in customized versions to a number of navies throughout the world, including the Romanian Navy, the Royal Thai Navy, and other ASEAN countries.

 

The Danish Navy’s four THETIS-class OPVs have been operating successfully in the Northern Atlantic seas surrounding Greenland and The Faroe Islands for 20 years. With the Mid-Life Upgrades, the ships will continue to patrol the Arctic waters for years to come.

Danish AW101s to get MX-15 sensor fit

Sep. 2, 2013 –by Craig Hoyle – FG

 

London - Denmark is to perform an equipment upgrade on some of its air force AgustaWestland AW101 helicopters, with the aircraft to be fitted with L-3 Wescam's MX-15 electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensor.

 

Announced by the supplier on 2 September, Copenhagen's acquisition and sustainment contract will provide "a minimum of eight MX-15 imaging systems". Deliveries should conclude by 2014, it adds, with the new sensors to be installed by Denmark's Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation. Certification activities will be managed by AgustaWestland.

 

"The newly equipped AW101s will then be deployed to the Royal Danish Air Force's 722 Sqn in tactical troop transport operations, training exercises within Denmark and possible future use in mission theatres globally," L-3 Wescam says.

 

The Royal Danish Air Force operates 14 AW101s, which Flightglobal's Ascend Online Fleets database records as having been built between 2005 and 2009. Part of the service's fleet is tasked with providing search and rescue cover from its Karup air base, with these aircraft having been delivered with FLIR Systems Star Safire II EO/IR sensors.

Revision Military has been awarded a contract for supply of additional Batlskin Cobra helmets to the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO).

 

Covering deliveries of additional 3,000 helmets, the order forms part of a seven year contract under which the company has already supplied 4,335 helmets to the Danish military.

 

The helmets were issued by DALO earlier this year to infantry and head-quarters troops deploying to Afghanistan.

 

Revision's CEO, Jonathan Blanshay, said the lightweight, high-performance polyethylene helmets have performed very well during rigorous in-theatre use.

 

''The Danish military was among the very first to identify and realise the benefits that new materials and technology would bring to soldier protection, and the first to buy and deploy the Cobra polyethylene helmet system,'' Blanshay said.

 

The Batlskin Cobra helmet has received positive feedback from soldiers returning from Afghanistan, with the vast majority reporting very positively on its weight, comfort and protection offered in theatre.

 

Fitted with a high-performance modular liner system, ergonomic retention system and multipurpose front mount, Batlskin Cobra is an ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene helmet, designed to safeguard soldiers against trauma-blunt force, blast fragmentation and ballistic threats.

 

Besides operating with multiple in-service equipment from night vision goggles (NVGs) to communications gear and weapons sights, the fully modular and integrated helmet can also wear system components in any combination to achieve ideal balance between protection and lethality.

 

The helmets delivered under the new contract will feature Revision's adjustable retention system, high-performance modular liner, multi-purpose front mount, fitted helmet cover and front rails for accessory attachment.

 

In addition, the three-position Visor and high-threat Mandible Guard, components included in the initial contract award, can be used for additional facial protection.

 

Manufacturing work will be carried out at the company's Composite Center of Excellence in Montreal, Canada, while the delivery schedule has not been undisclosed.

A request for information (RFI) has been issued by the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) seeking a new 155mm self-propelled gun for replacement of the national army's ageing M109A3 155mm self-propelled howitzer fleet.

 

Primarily aimed at replacing the army's remaining 32 M109A3 howitzers, the RFI is seeking 15 new weapons that can either be wheeled or tracked, and should support installation of a self-defence weapon, as reported by Shephard.

 

Capable of carrying a crew of five, the weapons should be able to achieve a range of at least 40km firing extended range ammunition, and a burst rate of six rounds per minute.

 

The RFI seeks submission of bids for between nine and 21 systems by 17 June, while evaluation of the responses resulting in selection of three or four manufacturers is scheduled to take place throughout July.

 

Short-listed candidates will proceed to a comprehensive evaluation programme that will complete in late 2013 or early 2014, followed by the signing of the procurement contract in the middle of the same year.

 

The contract will also feature a ten-year support, spare parts and maintenance package.

 

Likely contenders include BAE Systems Bofors' 155/52calibre wheeled Archer, Krauss-Maffei Wegmann-built 155/52calibre tracked Panzerhaubitze 2000 (PzH 2000), and Nexter 155/52-calibre wheeled CAmion Equipé d'un Système d'ARtillerie (CAESAR), amongst others.

 

DALO reportedly discussed the production and acquisition of Archer with Norway and Sweden, but withdrew in 2007 before signing a co-operation agreement.

 

Around 48 Archer systems, including 24 units each for Sweden and Norway, are currently being manufactured by BAE Systems Bofors.

 

The Danish Artillery Regiment features one artillery battalion and an ISTAR battalion, which is also responsible for training recuits.

 

In addition, the regiment deployed M/10 120mm towed mortars in support of the Danish troops serving with the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan.
