II.1.4) Short description of the contract or purchase(s):
DALO has entered an agreement which covers the supply of 76 mm smoke Grenade launcher systems (GLS), including a sustainment agreement covering spare parts and technical support.
A GLS is defined by DALO as a complete system comprising wiring, grenade tubes or tube configurations and a firing control unit. The GLS is expected to be installed on different vehicles, ring mounts and weapon stations.
The sustainment agreement will be a framework agreement, where DALO can obtain spare parts, repairs and technical support, e.g. for modification, upgrading and integration with additional platforms.
The GLS must be able to screen the vehicle in both the visual and infrared spectrum.
The scope of supply includes, but is not limited to, the following items (in non-prioritized order):
- wiring, including prototype and EMC test,
- tubes, single or module,
- firing control unit
- spare parts,
- courses/training for users and technicians,
- special tools and test equipment,
- services and support,
- provide support to a system integrator for integration of the GLS on vehicles, weapon stations and ring mounts,
- other GLS with different calibers will be taken into consideration.
The supplier must be prepared to cooperate with system integrators in relation to vehicles, weapon stations and ring mounts.

http://esd.eu.newsmemory.com/Each CARDOM 10 mortar system will be equipped with a MVRS-700SC muzzle velocity radar system from Weibel in Denmark. Many parameters, such as temperature, humidity and barrel conditions influence a mortar bomb's muzzle velocity. It is pivotal to compensate for these parameters and improve accuracy by adjusting individual mortar settings according to precise measured muzzle velocity. The radar system is integrated with the FCS and consists of an antenna and a processor. The antenna unit contains all necessary electronics and an acoustic trigger. Its trigger and Doppler signals are digitised by the processor unit and stored for digital analysis.
CARDOM 10 – Autonomy and Accuracy
One way to reduce the threat that the mortar team is exposed to hostile reconnaissance is to introduce systems that help to reduce the time spent on laying the mortar. The CARDOM 10 is a fully autonomous 120mm soft recoil mortar system. The system delivers effective fire support by combining the flexibility and effectiveness of accurate mortar fire with the exceptional tactical mobility of the PIRANHA 5. This combination allows the commander to deploy his systems in different formations depending on the threat including all formations from close together to spread over a larger area, thus forcing the enemy to use more resources to engage the unit.
The CARDOM 10 is a derivative of the combat-proven 120mm CARDOM which is an open hatch, muzzle loaded and turntable mounted mortar used by the US Army, the Israeli defence forces and other countries.
CARDOM 10 uses a longer barrel in order to achieve ranges of up to 10 km with extended range ammunition. This explains the designation CARDOM 10. The mortar utilises an auto-laying system based on an electric drive for elevation and traverse, also enabling MRSI (Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact) capabilities. In case of a power supply failure or a breakdown of the computer or navigation system, the mortar can be laid manually using the backup handles and an optical sight unit known from the ground-based systems.
The Fire Control System (FCS) is based on NATO's S4 software. Combined with meteorological information (METGM or METCM) and information from the muzzle velocity radar the FCS provides a very high accuracy level. In combination with the auto-laying of the mortar, this technology will improve firing accuracy and reduce the need for adjusting the fire before fire for effect.
These are major steps to reduce time in the firing position and to avoid the possibility of a counter fire. The FCS is interfaced to the Army’s battle management system and the call-for-fire procedure is now based on digital communication means. If needed, the observer can call for fire via voicecommunication, too. Besides, the system is equipped with a semi-automatic loading system that enables the crew to easily control and fire with a rate of up to 10 rounds per minute. Compared to manual loading of the mortar the loading system reduces the physical stress on the crew, thus improving the team's effectiveness.
Final Test and Delivery
The complete system was subject to an extensive test programme from February until July of this year, including mobility tests and applying maximum stress on the weapon. The noise and pressure during engagement were measured to provide best possible environmental conditions for the crew. The tests also included live firing in tactical scenarios to consider the overall performance. These scenarios were based on the “shoot n´ scoot” principle. The system met all requirements for fast and accurate fire and proved to be a very effective system for the future – ready to meet the “new” threats on the battlefield. The systems will be organised in platoons with four systems in each platoon in support of the infantry battalions. The first systems will be delivered in the early part of 2020 with deliveries to be completed at the beginning of 2021.

The system will be integrated on Denmark’s new fleet of Piranha V 8x8 vehicles. The contract was won in an international competitive bidding process.
