LONDON, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- Terma, the Danish aerospace and defense company, has been contracted for the midlife upgrade of the Danish Navy's offshore patrol vessels.

During the four-year project, THETIS-class offshore patrol vessels will be fitted with SCANTER 4100 radar units and C-Flex command & Control Systems.

C-Flex will support the full mission cycle in maritime domain security and surveillance by integrating the shipboard sensor and weapon systems to generate a real-time situational awareness display that can be shared in full over data-link.

"We are proud that the Royal Danish Navy once again has selected Terma as their supplier of solutions for the Danish vessels," said Thomas Blom, Terma's vice president, Naval. "This is an invaluable sign of trust, and a stamp of quality for our products."

The contract, announced at a defense exhibition in London, was issued by the Danish Defense Acquisition and Logistics Organization. Its monetary value was not disclosed.

Terma said it will deliver four SCANTER 4100 radar systems, with an option for an additional four systems for training use. The first radar will be operational in the middle of next year and the remaining radars towards the end of 2014.
