TRS Signs Contract with NATO to Strengthen Theatre Missile Defense Capabilities

ThalesRaytheonSystems signed a €92.5M contract with NATO for a significant upgrade to the Alliance’s current missile defense command and control capability.

By bringing new capabilities to NATO’s Air Command and Control System (ACCS), the contract will strengthen and expand the functionality of NATO’s existing missile defense command and control system. This will allow the Alliance to link national sensors and interceptors, with NATO’s Air Command in Ramstein, Germany, to plan and execute a missile defense battle.

“The execution of this contract will be a major step forward for NATO’s missile defense,” said Koen Gijsbers, NCI Agency’s General Manager. “This contract further merges two of NATO’s largest common funded investments – air and missile defense – paving the way for an integrated approach.”

“With this contract ThalesRaytheonSystems will launch additional functions on top of the ones we develop for the satisfaction of the user community.” said Philippe Duhamel, CEO of ThalesRaytheonSystems.

The project involves a transatlantic industrial base across 8 Nations and 15 industry partners. It is expected to be completed by 2018. It will be rolled-out in three steps, with the final step offering an integrated single software baseline able to support both air and missile defense.
