Terma has recently announced a series of enhancements to its C-GUARD shipborne countermeasures system. C-GUARD is already in service on the Indonesian Navy’s four DIPONEGORO-class corvettes and will be integrated on the service’s two new PKR-class frigates.

Earlier this year Terma, Chemring, and DCNS conducted joint operational trials of a new semi-automatic torpedo defence functionality for C-GUARD, enabling the launchers to fire the DCNS CANTO anti-torepdo decoy using an embedded CONTRALTO reaction software capability. Conducted on board the Danish frigate RDN IVER HUITFELDT, the successful conclusion of the trials means that C-GUARD is the only 130mm soft-kill weapon system currently fully integrated with CANTO and CONTRALTO, according to Terma.

C-GUARD operates by launching 130mm chaff and IR countermeasures to decoy missile threats by using advanced software to determine optimum placement and evasive manourvres. The addition of and anti-torpedo function will certainly be attraitive to the users of the 150+ systems already in service. As well as Indonesia, operating nations include Australia, Denmark, Chile, Netherlends, Norway, Romania and the US. (Photo: Terma)
