D&S 2017: C-Guard to protect Philippine frigates

Denmark-based Terma Group will equip the Philippine Navy’s future frigates with its C-Guard decoy launchers, which will assist in the protection of the strategic assets.

The company will deliver a total of four launchers, two per frigate. Each launcher has six tubes, the DL-6T Launcher variant, and uses 130mm NATO decoy rounds to protect against threats including RF, IR, dual seeker and torpedo threats.

The C-Guard solution has been thoroughly evaluated by the Philippine Navy.

Terma to fit new Philippines frigates with C-Guard decoy launchers

https://www.naval-technology.com/news/terma-fit-philippine-frigates-c-guard-decoy-launchers/

Danish company Terma has been selected to deliver and install its C-Guard decoy launching systems on-board the two 2,600t future frigates of the Philippines Navy.

In October last year, Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) signed a contract with the Philippines Department of National Defense to construct the two 107m-long frigates for the navy.

The decoy launchers can provide 360° coverage and help counter advanced threats such as small range gate radio frequency (RF) missiles, imaging infrared (IR) seekers missiles, dual seeker threats and advanced torpedoes.

Using SeaGnat or 130mm decoy rounds, the C-Guard system will provide the Philippines Navy with protection against numerous threats, according to Terma.

The C-Guard algorithm will provide the flexibility of deploying chaff as sub-munitions or as large chaff bursts.

“The decoy launchers can provide 360° coverage and help counter advanced threats such as small range gate radio frequency (RF) missiles.”
Also, the multi-azimuth tubes of the C-Guard system enable the algorithm to calculate precise firing of IR to provide 360° coverage.

The algorithm can calculate the heat dissemination of flare decoys and in combination with chaff decoys obscure the IR image of a naval vessel.

In addition, launchers support the firing of the new and advanced acoustic anti-torpedo decoys.
