EDO to Provide Electronic Systems on New Danish Ships.
The new 6,300-ton Flexible Support Ships are the largest and most versatile units of the Danish Navy. This next generation of multi-role ship is intended to cover a broad range of tasks, such as command vessel for managing land, naval and air forces, supply vessel, helicopter platform, or military field hospital. The ships are being equipped with the most advanced technology available.
The ES 3701 is a state-of-the-art precision ESM system that detects, identifies and locates hostile ship and missile radar signals early and efficiently. This will enable the ship's commanding officer to quickly react with an appropriate defensive response.
"With the threat of modern weapons, a high-precision ESM system is essential for ship survivability," said James M. Smith, EDO's chief executive officer. "Our system is in demand not only for its superior situational-awareness capabilities, but also for its human interface. Our engineers work closely with customers to understand what they really need and how to display the information effectively. That is why the ES 3701 is in such demand by navies worldwide."
