Guarding the seas [ID18D1]

06 November 2018

Danish company Terma (Hall D, Stand D185), a provider of naval command and control systems, including combat management, surveillance, counterterrorism, interdiction, maritime picture compilation, and search and rescue operations, is displaying its C-Flex Command & Control, C-Guard Naval Decoy and Scanter X-band radar systems. Its team here is headed by president and CEO Jens Maaløe and Anupam Narain Mathur, vice president and general manager, Terma Asia Pacific.

Terma's Scanter X-band navigation, surface search and short-range air surveillance radar systems have proven small target detection capability to assist authorities in efficiently monitoring illegal activities such as drug trafficking, smuggling, illegal immigrants, piracy, illicit fishing and terrorism. It is suited for high-definition sea surface surveillance and shortrange air surveillance for helicopter control and ship navigation. Scanter provides back-up to primary surveillance radars and has a versatile interface capability for C-Flex and other onboard systems.

Scanter radars are operated on land and at sea by the Indonesian Maritime Security Agency, the Indonesian Sea and Coast Guard, the Directorate General of Sea Transportation, and Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

The Indonesian Navy has chosen the Terma C-Guard decoy launching system to protect its strategic assets against missile attacks. C-Guard ensures 360° coverage and will effectively counter advanced threats such as small-range gate radio frequency missiles, imaging infrared missiles and next-generation torpedoes. C-Guard relies on combat-proven 130mm NATO decoys and a proven mechanical launcher design without moving parts.

"Terma has a proud history as supplier to Indonesia's defence, and we are looking forward to further developing relations with the defence establishment and the Indonesian industry," said Maaløe.
