Terma senior vice president Jorn Henrik Levy Rasmussen and Marand chief executive Rohan Stocker were at the ceremonial signing of the agreement, with Rasmussen saying it is a good indication of its plans to increase its Australian activities.

"The agreement we sign today is strong evidence of Terma's present and future presence in the Australian market and interest in co-operating with the local industry," he said.

"In recent years Terma [has] delivered a number of naval and surveillance systems in Australia and now we intensify our activities."
