This procurement process is supporting capability requirements set out in a supplement to the current Danish Defence Agreement (which covers the 2018-23 period). The supplement, known as ‘The Arctic Capability package’, was published in February 2021.
“The work for implementing the agreement has already begun,” Commodore Claus Andersen, a Royal Danish Navy (RDN) officer and Deputy National Armaments Director in Denmark’s Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO), told the SAE Media Group Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology conference, held in London on 1-2 February.
Two key steps were taken in 2022, said Cdre Andersen.
First, DALO issued a tender for a medium-altitude/long-endurance, long-range uncrewed aerial vehicle to provide surveillance and intelligence capability. Tender bids are currently being assessed, with contract award anticipated in 2023.
Second, the Joint Arctic Command Denmark (JACO) – headquartered in Nuuk, southwestern Greenland – is being certified as a test and evaluation centre for new surveillance technologies to be operated in the region. “The JACO upgrade will be finalised in the first half of 2023: the basic architecture will be stood up,” Cdre Andersen said. This architecture upgrade includes enhancing JACO’s command-and-control (C2) capabilities.
The C2 upgrade includes the TERMA JIMAPS C4ISR system, and a Systematic SitaWare-based solution, Cdre Andersen told Naval News on 9 February.
Under the capability package, Denmark committed to invest in new technologies – especially uncrewed systems, communications, and data analysis – to improve surveillance, presence, and other outputs to support national and NATO Arctic interests.
Delivering improved presence and surveillance will be underpinned by new technology, which in turn will be underpinned by wider digital transformation across Denmark’s defence capability and infrastructure, Cdre Andersen told the conference. “[JACO] headquarters will serve as a basis for tests and trials on the digital transformation of the Danish armed forces,” he explained.
Denmark’s Arctic and wider North Atlantic interests range from Denmark itself, to the Faroe Islands, up to and across Greenland, and including the Greenland-Iceland-UK (GIUK) Gap. The current deterioration in regional security means military activity there is increasing.
