Finnish company T&G Nordic has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Danish defence group Terma to work in collaboration on areas of mutual interest.

Under the deal, T&G Nordic will support design and development of a new test cartridge for Terma’s naval defence electronic equipment, the C-Guard naval decoy launching system.

Terma Market Development senior vice-president Jørn Henrik Levy Rasmussen said: “With the signing of the MoU, we agree with T&G Nordic to explore areas of mutual interest.

“Specifically, this entails a partnership where T&G Nordic supports Terma in the design, development, and production of a new test cartridge for Terma’s C-Guard decoy launching system, our renowned and globally sold naval self-protection solution to counter multiple missile and torpedo attacks.”

“The C-Guard decoy launching system helps effectively counter advanced threats such as small range gate radio frequency missiles, imaging infra-red seekers missiles and upgraded next-generation torpedoes.”

Through the MoU, T&G Nordic will become a part of Terma’s supply chain and have access to new export markets.

The test cartridge will help increase the functionality of the C-Guard naval self-protection system.

It will provide a solution that will generate system simulation scenarios, and increased control and usability for the operator combined with advanced setup parameters for the system.

Providing 360° coverage, the C-Guard decoy launching system helps effectively counter advanced threats such as small range gate radio frequency (RF) missiles, imaging infra-red (IR) seekers missiles and upgraded next-generation torpedoes.

The Terma-built solution depends on 130mm Nato decoys and an advanced mechanical launcher design without moving parts.

The system requires limited maintenance, which ensures its high operational availability at a significantly low cost of ownership.

The C-Guard decoy launching system helps a wide number of navy ships, ranging from patrol vessels to frigates, counter unexpected missile and torpedo attacks during live naval operations.
