Terma, which is currently involved in the upgrade of the Tiger class naval programme in Egypt with the Terma naval C-Flex command and control suite, is confident of completing the modernisation effort in 2019.
The company is currently involved in a project to replace an old Combat Management System (CMS) from four Egyptian Navy small patrol ships. “We will complete the upgrade work on these small patrol ships by 2019. Work on the first two ships took a year. We will accelerate the programme to deliver the capability requested by the Egyptian Navy on schedule,” said Soren K. Sorenson, Project Manager Command, Control & Sensor Programmes at Terma, who spoke with Daily News at the ongoing EDEX 2018. “We would like to participate in all upcoming modernisation programmes for the Egyptian Navy,” he added.
The company is also keen to supply C-Guard naval decoys for Egypt’s Gowind and Mistral fleet. Several types of Terma radar types are currently in use with the Egyptian Navy. Terma is also supplying radars for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s coastal surveillance system and has received orders from Morocco for radar systems.
Terma is showcasing its C-Flex Combat Management System, which has been installed on vessels ranging from, Patrol Vessels (PV), Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPV), amphibious vessels, frigates and command ships, at the show. C-Flex has been in use continuously in the Gulf of Aden for co-ordinating and executing operations against piracy. C-Flex is available for delivery in less than 12 months for standard systems and installation for such systems typically takes 3-6 months. The system also benefits from not having any ITAR items.
