Terma's BMD-Flex in successful test with the US MDA

Terma's BMD-Flex has participated in a successful "live fire" test by the U.S. Missile Defence Agency (MDA) from the U.S. Navy's Space and Air Warfare Systems Center (SSC) collocated with headquarters of the U.S. third fleet in San Diego.

During the test, BMD-Flex received the track of the intermediate range ballistic missile as well as the launch point and impact point.

This demonstrates the capability of the first phase of the phased, adaptive approach for missile defense in Europe which was announced by President Obama in September 2009. In relation to BMD-Flex, the test proves how Terma's solution is fully interoperable with the assets which will be deployed in Europe as of 2011 and scheduled to be complete in 2020.

BMD-Flex is an international command and control system for integrated air and missile defense. Its flexible design makes it the perfect choice for both land-based and sea-based defense of deployed forces as well as population centers against the growing threat from ballistic missiles throughout the world.

Collaboration between Lockheed Martin (LMMS2) and Terma has resulted in an integrated air and missile defense which is agile, modular, scalable, and tailorable to the needs of the customer. The approach is based on an open architecture allowing an initial capability for the integration of air and/or missile defense.

The MDA, U.S. Navy sailors aboard the Aegis destroyer USS O'KANE, and soldiers from the 94th Army Air and Missile Defense Command operating from the 613th Air and Space Operations Center at Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii, successfully conducted a flight test of the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) element of the U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense System, resulting in the intercept of a separating ballistic missile target over the Pacific Ocean. It was the culmination of a series of successful tests, including lab tests with simulated and recorded live data as well as participation in multiple NATO Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstrations.
