The Australian and Danish defence contractors, Tenix Defence and Terma, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore collaboration in Australia and elsewhere.

The first result of the MoU is a teaming agreement for the Royal Australian Air Force Project AIR5416 - ECHIDNA, for which the Tenix/Terma team will be able to offer a considerable depth of experience in electronic warfare control, utilizing Terma's experience and capabilities in the development and future upgrades of the ECHIDNA electronic warfare system.

The core of the offer will be the electronic warfare controller, the EWC-4000, which comprises a variant of the proven technology of the existing Terma AN/ALQ-213(V) electronic warfare management system, already fielded in RAAF's inventory during the AIR 5391 Phase 6 for the F-111 IEW.

Further teaming may include future surveillance, reconnaissance and electronic warfare programs such as the AIR 5421 Tactical Reconnaissance and Strike Support Program.
