Danish Military selects Marshall for communications contract

Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has been chosen by the Danish Ministry of Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO) to deliver advanced communications and network containers as part of its programme to update the Danish Armed Forces deployable infrastructure.

Marshall will provide more than 40 containers as part of this multi-million pound contract, which will also see the Company fit out the units to meet the operational requirement and give on-call support as required by the Danish Armed Forces.

The Network and Communications containers will be supplied with air conditioning, electrical power distribution and fitted with a full suite of intruder and EMC protection assets. Internally, the containers will be fitted with computer, communications, and network equipment.

Alistair McPhee, Chief Executive of Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, said: “As part of our strategy for growth we are increasing our focus on exports. This contract demonstrates that we are on the right road especially as the award is based on our technical competence and pricing structure against a range of international competitors.

“We have had a long running relationship with the Danish Defence Forces going back to 1996 when they selected us to provide maintenance services for their C-130 Hercules aircraft. This was further extended in 2013 in a ground breaking collaborative support contract in partnership with the Royal Norwegian Air Force.”
