The Royal Netherlands Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) awarded Raytheon Integrated Air and Missile Defense a contract to upgrade the Patriot ground-based mobile integrated air and missile defense systems of the Royal Netherlands Air Force with the MMS (Modern Man Station) user interface.
The MMS is the latest operator-machine interface upgrade to Patriot command and control shelters. It provides full-color graphical user interface with LCD displays. It also has touch screens and soft keys for enhanced situational awareness, with best-in-class command and control decision support tools. MMS is used to identify and display airborne objects; track potential threats; and engage hostile targets, including aircraft, unmanned air vehicles, cruise missiles and tactical ballistic missiles.
The MMS were procured via a direct commercial sales contract.
