Rheinmetall has won a contract worth multi-million euros to install state-of-the-art sensor and advanced command and control technology to protect a new naval port for an international customer.
The installation of sensors and advanced command and control technology will protect the equipment from unauthorized access, damage and sabotage. Work will begin in 2018 and is expected to be completed in 2021.
To protect the infrastructure, a network of different sensors - different day and night vision cameras, radars, proximity sensors and sonars – will be used to maintain a comprehensive picture of the situation. Furthermore, Rheinmetall is integrating monitoring technology and control systems, such as an integrated building management system, energy supply monitoring, a fire alarm system and a vessel traffic monitoring system. All information flows into the operations center from which the naval base is monitored.
The heart of the monitoring system is Rheinmetall’s Command and Control software – a powerful, innovative software for leadership support which meets all NATO requirements. Rheinmetall’s Command and Control software supports the decision-making of the management and staff organization. The software processes, documents and manages sensor data of any quantity and size and supports the planning and deployment of tactical means.
Rheinmetall has integrated the MELLS antitank guided missile into the Marder 1A5 infantry fighting vehicle of the German army. Following successful conclusion of the study phase, the German Bundeswehr subsequently ordered 44 MELLS retrofit kits, which were delivered in December 2017
