Thales has signed a subcontract for the verification of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) architecture on the integrated test bed in The Hague, The Netherlands.
The work is part of the contract awarded to prime contractor Leidos by NATO earlier this year.
Under the contract, United States-based firm Leidos and its eight teammates from Canada, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States, will support NATO’s BMD programme by working together as an integrated product team to deliver BMD capability.
In this scope, Thales will perform the testing and integration activities required for the verification of the NATO BMD architecture. The team is responsible for the design, development and test of the interfaces with NATO’s and national weapons and sensors.
The contract has a duration of four years with options for extension.
