DALO - Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistic Organisation
The Danish Defence and Logistic Organization (DALO) signed a framework agreement with Thales concerning the acquisition of the vehicle communication system SOTAS, as well as services for the equipment delivered.

Key Points

Thales has signed a framework agreement to supply vehicle communication system SOTAS to the Danish Defence and Logistic Organization in Denmark

OTAS systems are based on a high performance open architecture that is modular, scalable and future-proof.

The Thales SOTAS systems are fielded in more than 30 countries supporting the broad range of wheeled and tracked military tactical vehicles.

The contract ties DALO and Thales together for the next seven years and first deliveries from the contract are foreseen in 2018. Maintenance technologies will be transferred from Thales activities in the Netherlands to Denmark to reinforce a closer local relationship with DALO.

The Thales SOTAS communication system is expected to be installed in both wheeled and tracked vehicles. DALO has chosen this system for its high quality and its ability to be fully compatible with SOTAS equipment delivered under the previous Framework Agreement.

The system is future-proof and integrates easily with other equipment in the vehicles because of its interfaces and the use of standard protocols. With this renewed relationship with Thales, the Danish Armed Forces has decided to continue with a well-proven and reliable capability as the SOTAS system is.
