Terma has signed a contract for the establishment, operation, and maintenance of the shared control room software for the Danish Preparedness Networks new digital radio communication system, SINE. Terma is tasked with delivering the crucial link between the control rooms and the individual users.
The contract includes the software system which controls resources and communication between the Danish Preparedness Network control rooms and the radio network users. Terma has entered into the contract with the Danish Agency for Governmental Management. The contract values DKK 300 million and includes establishment of the shared control room software to be used in all control rooms of the Danish Preparedness Network, to include operation of the solution for five years after set-up. - Based on our expertise within this type of complex assignments, we have offered a solution which we believe fully complies with the requirements of SINE, and we have linked up with a number of competent sub-suppliers, says Peter Deichmann, Senior Vice President of the Business Area Integrated Systems in Terma. - Strategically, the order is of significant importance for Termas future continuation of its business development, as we now possess a Business Area with paramount potential. Furthermore, a number of countries are anticipated to establish similar emergency networks in the years to come. Terma has over 30 years of experience within command and control systems for defense purposes, space technology, and non-defense air traffic management. Subsequently, technological and professional qualifications warrant an efficient and reliable control room solution for SINE. In the future, the shared control room solution ensures that all Danish preparedness authorities, including the police, the fire brigade, and the Home Guard, can communicate via a shared radio network in day-to-day incidents as well as in emergencies. The new radio network ensures enhanced efficiency, e.g. a combination of shorter response time, improved coordination, and facilitated administration and reporting. This will release resources, allowing users additional time for executing their primary assignments. The contract implies a total of approx. 50 new jobs, mainly at Terma/Herlev.
