The Polish Ministry of National Defence and Thales have signed a contract for the delivery of the integrated combat system and related acceptance activities on board the ORP ASLA"ZAK Patrol Vessel. The system will be fully operational in 2016. The vessel is the successor of the GAWRON multipurpose corvette programme.


In the scope of this contract, Thales will deliver main combat system components such as the TACTICOS Combat Management System, SMART-S Mk2 surveillance radar, STING-EO Mk2 (currently named the STIR 1.2 EO Mk2) fire control radar, MIRADOR electro-optical observation and fire control system and LINK 11/16 tactical data link system. Thales is also responsible for the combat system integration related to other systems to be installed on board the vessel, such as weapons, communication and navigation systems, as well as several third party-supplied sensors.


Gerben Edelijn, CEO of Thales Nederland: “We won this contract because of our state of the art technical solution which perfectly matched the customer’s requirements. Taking the fierce international competition into account, this contract proves our position as no. 1 worldwide in naval mission systems.”

HENGELO, Netherlands, April 24 (UPI)


Thales Nederland reports its APAR multifunction radar has successfully completed its first sea acceptance test on a Danish navy frigate.


The Active Phased Array Radar is the first of three systems delivered to Denmark under a 2006 contract. The systems are for Denmark's Iver Huitfeldt class frigates.


From January 2011-January 2012 factory acceptance tests for all three radars were performed and they were installed on the frigates.


"This SAT demonstrates our capability to maintain the highest possible level of product quality over a long period of time," said Thales Nederland Chief Executive Officer Gerben Edelijn. "We are proud of the excellent relationship with the Royal Danish Navy."


"Following this SAT, there will be a harbor acceptance test later this year to test the ship's Anti-Air Warfare and Fire Control capabilities," the company said. "The program is scheduled to end early 2014."
