MASSY, FRANCE (BNS): ThalesRaytheonSystems (TRS) has been awarded a contract by NATO’s Active Layered Theater Ballistic Missile Defence (ALTBMD) Programme Office to provide the alliance commanders with real-time interim ballistic missile defence capabilities for deployed forces by the end of 2010.

The company will deliver the Air Command and Control System (ACCS) Theatre Missile Defence (TMD) component of NATO’s ALTBMD Interim Capability Step 2 Real-Time (InCa 2 RT).

This programme will enhance the alliance’s command and control capabilities by integrating the alliance nations’ contributions in areas such as space-based Shared Early Warning, Early Warning Frigates and weapons systems.

"ThalesRaytheonSystems is proud to deliver a theatre air and missile defense system to ensure the future security of NATO deployed forces," Jack Harrington, chief executive officer, ThalesRaytheonSystems, was quoted as saying in a company news release.

The company, under the direction of ALTBMD Programme Office, will work in close cooperation with NATO’s C3 Agency to field InCa 2. This deployment will be the first operational use of NATO’s ACCS LOC1 software, currently being developed by ThalesRaytheonSystems as the prime contractor.
