ThalesRaytheonSystems Completes Command And Control System For Malaysian Ministry Of Defence

FULLERTON, Calif., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ThalesRaytheonSystems today announced full system acceptance has been finalized with the Royal Malaysian Air Force for the Malaysian Air Defense Ground Environment Sector Operations Center III (MADGE) Program. ThalesRaytheonSystems provided the Malaysian Ministry of Defence an enhanced national command and control system.  

"The C2 system we've executed in Malaysia represents technological integration at its best," said Kim Kerry, CEO of U.S. Operations for ThalesRaytheonSystems. "We worked with our Malaysian customers to integrate their legacy system and have augmented it with proven technologies, such as the Sentry ® command and control system and the Ground Master 400 (GM 400) radar. The result is a system that reliably and effectively meets their requirements."

The MADGE system operates in real-time and features multi-radar tracking and a flexible human-machine interface. The GM 400 radar will provide additional long-range surveillance capabilities for the Royal Malaysian Air Force.

ThalesRaytheonSystems has more installed command and control systems operating around the world than any other organization. The Sentry command and control system is a proven, comprehensive, real-time system that powers national air sovereignty systems around the world, including the NORAD Battle Control System. The company is also a world leader in battlefield and weapon-locating radar systems. The company's radar capabilities span short-, medium-, and long-range systems. The ground-based radars are capable of detecting both conventional and unconventional threats for homeland and tactical air defense, counter-battery, and weapons system coordination.
