AARHUS, Denmark, July 11 (UPI) -- Terma of Denmark's BMD-Flex command-and- control system was successfully used in "live fire" test by the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.
During the test – conducted by MDA in collaboration with the U.S. Navy's Space and Air Warfare Systems Center -- BMD-Flex received the track of the intermediate range ballistic missile as well as the launch point and impact point.
The test demonstrated the capability of the first phase of the phased, adaptive approach for missile defense in Europe, which was announced by U.S. President Barak 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 and suited for both land-based and sea-based defense of deployed forces as well as population centers.
Terma has headquarters at Aarhus, Denmark, and maintains international subsidiaries and operations in The Netherlands, Germany, the United States and Singapore.
