Terma bags contracts to supply Indonesia with electronic warfare, anti-submarine systems

Terma has received a contract to supply the Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia – Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) with a third-party electronic support measures (ESM) system.

The ESM system will be supplied with Terma's C-Flex vessel command-and-control system, and these will be incorporated on board six vessels.

β€œAs part of the overall system design, we are also in close co-operation with a UK EW data management specialist, who will provide a shore station for ESM data processing, storage, and dissemination,” said Terma in a media release on 29 September.

β€œThis combination of system solutions will allow the Indonesian Navy to establish a fully functional ESM database for their fleet,” the company added without giving further details about the UK data management company.

Additionally, Terma has received a contract to upgrade the existing C-Guard decoys launching system on board the TNI-AL's Diponegoro-class corvettes with anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capabilities.

β€œIn this programme, we will in collaboration with a partner provide an upgrade to enhance the existing AAW (anti-air warfare) capable C-Guard system with ASW capabilities,” said Terma.

The TNI-AL operates a fleet of four 90 m Diponegoro-class corvettes that were commissioned between 2007 and 2009.

The vessels are presently equipped with two six-tubed DL-6T decoy launchers from Terma as part of the C-Guard suite and these launchers are located one each on the port and starboard sides.

The launchers can fire both mortar and rocket-propelled decoys as a defence against hostile precision-guided munitions.
