The MRSL staff expertise includes engineers, mathematicians, analysts, and scientists. The areas of staff expertise include algorithm development, digital signal processing, system engineering and development, and hardware and software development. MRSL developed the Vivid Pointer Pulse Doppler processing system that can be integrated with existing FLINT, RWR. ESM, and weapons systems. The Vivid Pointer algorithms identify threat and friendly pulse Doppler systems and provide identification of emitter modes to r eveal threat intentions (e.g. search, acquisition, track, and illuminate). Vivid Pointer capabilities have been successfully demonstrated in the laboratory and onboard a USAF C-130.

Terma was founded in 1949 and has since developed into a high-tech company that develops, produces, and markets a wide range of radars, [C.sup.3]I, and EW systems. In the EW field, Terma specializes in these areas: 1) control and integration of EW self-protection systems on fighters, transport aircraft, and helicopters; 2) chaff/flare dispensers; and 3) pods, pylons, and other externally mounted structures for installation of various types of EW systems. The Terma Corp. has four sites in Denmark and a total workforce of approximately 1,000 employees.
The Terma EW Management System (EWMS), the AN/ALQ-213 (V), was developed in close cooperation with the Royal Danish Air Force for the F-16. The system was subsequently made compatible with a wide range of EW subsystems and adapted for use in other aircraft, It is now a generic system that is able to control any combinations of EW subsystems on multiple types of tactical aircraft. The system also provides control for other than EW subsystems. In the Belgian, US, and Danish fleets of F-16s, the EWMS has been selected to control the onboard reconnaissance system. The AN/ALQ-213 (V) is in operational use in twelve different types of fighters, transport aircraft, and helicopters in eight countries, including the US, Australia, and several European countries. Based on incoming threat signals, the EWMS automated threat-response capability er sures that the optimum combination of countermeasures is initiated without action from the pilot. The system also features a semiautomatic and a manual mode of operation. Ongoi ng development includes a new Tactical Threat Display (TTD) -- introduced mainly to accommodate information from missile-warning systems -- and a three-dimensional audio-warning system that will immediately alert the pilot to the direction of the threat.
Terma has also developed the Advanced Countermeasures Dispensing System (ACMDS), which has been adapted to various types of aircraft. The Pylon Integrated Dispensing System (PIDS) is used by several F-16 countries, including the US. The PIDS has been further modified to accommodate missile-warning sensors. The Modular Countermeasures Pod (MCP) is used on transport aircraft, and special scab-on mountings are in use on transport aircraft and helicopters.
