Danish Terma and UK-based Chemring Countermeasures announce they are teaming up to develop a complete soft-kill solution for surface unit defense.

By integrating Terma’s C-Guard defensive aid suite and Chemring’s CENTURION fully trainable 130mm launcher, both capable of deploying a range of off-board expendable decoys, a scalable system has been developed to offer a step change in the anti-ship missile defense (ASMD) capability.

“The combined system solution offered by Terma and Chemring enhances soft-kill capabilities through refined and dynamic threat evaluation followed by accurate payload placement to maximize the decoy effect, providing the maritime commander with a balanced response by deploying the right decoy in the right position at the right time”, Terma director naval sales Mogens Nørregaard Cramer explains.

“Extending C-Guard with the Chemring CENTURION fully trainable 130mm launcher provides both existing and new C-Guard customers with an upgrade path to the benefits offered by a trainable launcher capability,” states Andy Hogben, Business Director, Chemring Countermeasures.

The companies said the C-Guard may be deployed on naval platforms using any combination of the existing fixed launchers and/or the CENTURION fully trainable launcher. The trainable capability optimizes missile countermeasure performance in the anti-air warfare domain, whilst also offering a hard point for launching a range of off-board expendables to provide capability in anti-surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare, anti-air warfare, and C4ISR disciplines.
