Thales Raytheon Systems has been awarded a $103.3 million contract to update the missile defense command and control system of NATO.

The upgraded system would connect NATO’s Ramstein, Germany-based air command to national sensors and interceptors in order to implement missile defense plans, NATO said May 11.

Thales Raytheon Systems will roll out the updates through 2018 in three steps that would result in a consolidated software baseline for both air and missile defense systems.

Philippe Duhamel, CEO of Thales Raytheon Systems, said the company intends for the contract to help NATO expand integration with various nations.

The updates are designed to generate and display a single air and missile defense view, evaluate threats and cue sensors.

NATO Communications and Information Agency General Manager Koen Gijsbers and Duhamel inked the contract at the agency’s Brussels, Belgium-based headquarters.
