On Jan. 23, representatives from ThalesRaytheonSystems, the NATO Air Command and Control System Agency and the NATO Active Layered Theatre Ballistic Missile Defence Programme office gathered in Brussels to sign a complementary activity to the contract signed on Nov. 4, 2011 to field the Ballistic Missile Defence Interim Capability to operators in NATO’s Air Command in Ramstein, Germany.

This interim capability will be the first increment of an interim Territorial Missile Defense capability that will be one of the topics of the discussions due to take place at the NATO Chicago Summit in next May 2012.

According to NATO, attacks by ballistic missiles are one of the top three threats to the NATO Alliance.  This interim capability builds on a proven integrated air and missile defence system already delivered by the NATO C3 agency to operators in Uedem, Germany.

“The world is facing increasingly complex and a growing array of security challenges at home and across the world,” said Jack Harrington, CEO, ThalesRaytheonSystems.   “TRS is working in partnership with NATO and customers around the world to bring new technology, capabilities and business models for a smarter and more efficient procurement.”
