On August 31st, 2021, we have been awarded a contract to supply a third-party Electronic Support Measures (ESM) systems integrated with our C-Flex Patrol for 6 vessels. We will provide an Electronic Warfare (EW) solution that not only gives the Indonesian Navy the ability to capture, compile and utilize EW data across multiple ships, but also brings advantages in many other areas with the commonality in design and future expansion potential. As part of the overall system design, we are also in close cooperation with a UK EW data management specialist, who will provide a shore station for ESM data processing, storage and dissemination. This combination of system solutions will allow the Indonesian Navy to establish a fully functional ESM database for their fleet.
On the same day, we were also awarded another contract for the upgrade of existing C-Guard systems with Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) capabilities for the Sigma-Class Corvettes of the Indonesian Navy. In this program, we will in collaboration with a partner provide an upgrade to enhance the existing AAW (Anti-Air Warfare) capable C-Guard system with ASW capabilities. This C-Guard ASW upgrade program is a follow-on from the previous ASW upgrade contract awarded in 2019 for the same class of ships.
Our newly established Service and Operation Office in Surabaya will play a vital part of the project execution team. These two contracts further consolidate our position and relevance in Indonesia and are testament of the crucial role that Terma Indonesia plays in the development of the company in the country.
