Terma announced that it has been awarded a contract to supply third-party Electronic Support Measures (ESM) systems integrated with C-Flex Patrol systems for six boats on August 31st, 2021. A system from Terma will not only provide the Indonesian Navy with the ability to record, compile, and utilize electronic warfare data across numerous ships but will also provide advantages in a variety of other areas due to the commonality in design and future extension potential. As part of the overall system design, the company is also working closely with a UK EW data management specialist, who will provide a shore station for the processing, storage, and distribution of ESM data as part of the overall system design. It is through this mix of technological solutions that the Indonesian Navy will be able to construct a fully operational ESM database for their fleet.
On the same day, Terma was given a second contract for the upgrade of existing C-Guard systems with Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) capabilities for the Indonesian Navy’s Sigma-class corvettes, which will be completed in the coming months. In this program, Terma, in partnership with a partner, will offer an upgrade to the existing C-Guard system, which is capable of AAW (Anti-Air Warfare) and ASW capabilities. This ASW upgrade program for the C-Guard is a continuation of the previous ASW upgrade contract, which was granted in 2019 for the same class of ships. With more than 150 systems in operation worldwide, Terma’s C-Guard is a well proven and a cost-effective solution offering unmatched operational availability. C-Guard relies on combat proven 130 mm NATO decoys and a proven mechanical launcher design without moving parts. C-Guard legacy and reliability is built on decades of missions on a vast number of vessels, ranging from Patrol Vessels to Frigates, securing against unexpected missile and torpedo attacks during live naval operations ranging form surveillance to combat operations.
Terma has established itself in Indonesia with the opening of PT Terma Technologies Indonesia. The expansion emphasizes the company’s focus on the country, where it will pursue business opportunities within the aerospace, defense and security sector. The new office represents the third expansion in the Asia-Pacific region after the establishment of Terma Singapore in 2007 and Terma India in 2012. Terma Indonesia joins the Terma Asia Pacific cluster, with direct report to Singapore, which remains the regional headquarters. The newly established Service and Operation Office of Terma in Surabaya will play an important role in the project’s execution, as will the company’s other offices in Indonesia. Both of these contracts serve to further solidify Terma’s position and significance in Indonesia, and they serve as a monument to the critical role that Terma Indonesia has played in the company’s growth and development in the nation.
