Terma is making a significant contribution to Umoe and Kongsberg’s comprehensive upgrade of the Norwegian Navy’s Skjold-class corvettes with the provision of its SCANTER 6000 radars.
The upgrade aims to extend the operational lifespan of these vessels through the implementation of state-of-the-art systems and equipment.
The centerpiece of this upgrade is the installation of a new Combat Management System (CMS) which is designed to enhance the corvettes’ operational capabilities.
According to Terma, its SCANTER 6000 radars are a highly important component for the update. The radars are known for their exceptional performance and will provide simultaneous small target detection, helicopter guidance, and large and small target detection at both close and maximum range. They have also demonstrated exceptional performance against non-cooperative targets even in harsh weather conditions.
Terma can disclose that the SCANTER 6000 radars successfully completed a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) in early June 2023. These tests have further validated the robustness and reliability of the radars, ensuring their seamless integration into the upgraded corvettes.
The SCANTER 6000 radar system has already been deployed on various navy ships around the world, including those of the Danish, American, French, German, and UAE navies. Terma believes the system’s proven track record and performance make it an ideal choice for the Skjold-class corvettes, further enhancing their operational capabilities and situational awareness.
Terma remains dedicated to providing cutting-edge solutions and technology to support defense and security forces worldwide. The collaboration with Umoe and Kongsberg Group in the upgrade of the Skjold-class corvettes exemplifies Terma’s commitment to delivering innovative solutions that enhance operational effectiveness and extend the lifecycle of critical assets.
