EUR 15M to Modernize Electronics on 2 Finnish Ships
EADS received a EUR 15 million ($18.6 million) Finnish Navy contract for the modernization of two Hameenmaa Class multi-role minelayer, light patrol and support vessels. They will install the EADS Advanced Naval Combat Management System (ANCS), the TRS-3D Multi-Mode Radar, and the MSSR2000 Identification Friend or Foe system. When the upgrades are complete, the ships will become available for missions involving surveillance, protection of sea traffic, command & control, and auxiliary/support of international missions.
The project will be completed in 2008. As the shipyard work will be executed in Finland, Aker Finnyards will be responsible for the shipyard aspect. See corporate release.
