Terma has been contracted by the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) to integrate the Terma Modular Aircraft Survivability (MASE) Pod onto the Dutch air force’ NH-90 helicopters.
The MASE Pod solution includes the Terma developed and manufactured Electronic Warfare Management System, ALQ-213 in the latest version, Missile Warning sensors, and Chaff/Flare Dispenser modules. The modular design allows for future integration of coming sensors and new requirements.
– Having collaborated with the RNLAF for decades, we are very pleased being selected to provide the NH-90 platform with self-protection equipment. This strongly indicates that RNLAF have confidence in our solutions. This applies to system performance, the entire process, and the collaboration between the air force and Terma, said Jesper Petersen, Vice President, Airborne Applications, Terma Defense & Security.
Terma has collaborated with the RNLAF and The Netherlands’ Defence Materiel Organization for more than 20 years, integrating the EW suite on a large variety of aircraft platforms.
The MASE pod family concept was originally developed for installation on the AH-64D Apache in 2003. Since then, the modularity of the MASE pod has enabled tailoring for other helicopter platforms including EH-101, Mi-17, Mi-24, and AS 550 Fennec. The MASE pod concept is also fielded on the CH-47F Chinook in a sophisticated CHASE version. Further, Terma’s Electronic Self-Protection Systems are in use on the AS 532 U2 Cougar Mk2 and on the F-16 fighters and C-130H transport and other aircrafts throughout the world.
