Belgium Naval & Robotics has selected Terma as the supplier of the SCANTER 6000 radar for the Belgian and Royal Netherlands Navies Mine Countermeasures replacement programme.
In January 2021, Denmark-based Terma was contracted for the supply of 12 units of the SCANTER 6000 radar for the Belgian and Dutch replacement Mine Countermeasures (rMCM) programme. This radar will provide situational awareness besides detecting and tracking small targets. The first radar will be delivered in 2022.
Belgium Naval & Robotics – a Naval Group and ECA GROUP consortium – was awarded in 2019 a contract for twelve mine hunters and their drone systems for the Belgian and Royal Netherlands Navies. The programme will span over 10 years.
Six ships will be delivered to the Belgian Navy and six to the Royal Netherlands Navy with a first delivery scheduled for 2024. They will be equipped with complete drone systems supplied by ECA GROUP containing a total of more than 80 underwater, surface and aerial drones entirely dedicated to Mine Countermeasures operations.
