Boeing Completes Harpoon Industrial Cooperation Program in Denmark

COPENHAGEN, Den­mark — The Boe­ing Com­pa­ny [NYSE: BA] announced today that it has suc­cess­ful­ly com­plet­ed an indus­tri­al coop­er­a­tion pro­gram asso­ci­at­ed with fol­low-on sup­port of the Har­poon weapon sys­tem for the Roy­al Dan­ish Navy. Boe­ing met ahead of sched­ule the require­ments for this six-year peri­od of per­for­mance that began in Octo­ber 2004, demon­strat­ing the company’s con­tin­ued suc­cess in ful­fill­ing its indus­tri­al coop­er­a­tion com­mit­ments.

“This mile­stone was made pos­si­ble through the world-class capa­bil­i­ties of Dan­ish indus­try, includ­ing Ter­ma and Dan­ish Aerotech, and Boeing’s con­tin­ued part­ner­ship with the Dan­ish Enter­prise and Con­struc­tion Author­i­ty (DECA) under the Min­istry of Eco­nom­ic and Busi­ness Affairs,” said Gwen Kop­sie, direc­tor of Inter­na­tion­al Indus­tri­al Par­tic­i­pa­tion for Boe­ing Defense, Space & Secu­ri­ty.

Ter­ma A/S pro­vides Boe­ing with Har­poon mis­sile sim­u­la­tors, while Dan­ish Aerotech A/S is under con­tract with Boe­ing to deliv­er the Alu­minum Launch Sup­port Struc­ture (ALSS) for ship-based deploy­ment of the Har­poon.

Boe­ing con­tin­ues to bring indus­tri­al ben­e­fits to Dan­ish firms through a sec­ond sev­en-year peri­od of per­for­mance tied to Har­poon fol­low-on sup­port for the Roy­al Dan­ish Navy. The com­pa­ny also sup­ports DECA’s efforts to devel­op Dan­ish indus­try through a $29.6 mil­lion indus­tri­al coop­er­a­tion pro­gram for Denmark’s por­tion of the NATO Air­borne Warn­ing and Con­trol Sys­tem (AWACS).

“Over the years, Boe­ing has demon­strat­ed its com­mit­ment to Dan­ish indus­try with a focus on build­ing long-term, sus­tain­able part­ner­ships,” said Tom Bell, vice pres­i­dent of Busi­ness Devel­op­ment for Boe­ing Mil­i­tary Air­craft. “When the Roy­al Dan­ish Air Force reopens its New Com­bat Air­craft com­pe­ti­tion, Boe­ing stands ready to deliv­er the broad­est, most com­pre­hen­sive indus­tri­al coop­er­a­tion pro­gram ever under­tak­en in Den­mark with our Super Hor­net offer­ing.”

Boe­ing has iden­ti­fied more than 100 poten­tial projects with more than 45 Dan­ish com­pa­nies and insti­tu­tions to intro­duce new defense and aero­space tech­nolo­gies into Den­mark. These oppor­tu­ni­ties would extend beyond tra­di­tion­al aero­space to oth­er research and tech­nol­o­gy col­lab­o­ra­tion projects to sig­nif­i­cant­ly accel­er­ate growth across a large cross-sec­tion of Dan­ish indus­tries.

Boe­ing has suc­cess­ful­ly imple­ment­ed indus­tri­al par­tic­i­pa­tion pro­grams total­ing more than US$41 bil­lion in near­ly 40 coun­tries over the past 30 years.

The Har­poon weapon sys­tem pro­vides accu­rate long-range guid­ance for both land-strike and anti-ship mis­sions. The Har­poon Block II is pro­duced at Boe­ing facil­i­ties in St. Charles, Mo. Boe­ing has deliv­ered more than 7,100 Har­poon mis­siles to the Unit­ed States and 28 allied part­ners, includ­ing the Roy­al Dan­ish Navy.

A unit of The Boe­ing Com­pa­ny, Boe­ing Defense, Space & Secu­ri­ty is one of the world’s largest defense, space and secu­ri­ty busi­ness­es spe­cial­iz­ing in inno­v­a­tive and capa­bil­i­ties-dri­ven cus­tomer solu­tions, and the world’s largest and most ver­sa­tile man­u­fac­tur­er of mil­i­tary air­craft. Head­quar­tered in St. Louis, Boe­ing Defense, Space & Secu­ri­ty is a $34 bil­lion busi­ness with 68,000 employ­ees world­wide.
