PARIS, Sept. 20 (UPI) -- Terma of Denmark and France's DCNS say their technical cooperation has resulted in a new system to protect ships against torpedoes
The two have jointly developed a fully automatic anti-torpedo decoy system that uses the Terma 130mm Soft Kill Weapon System to fire DCNS CANTO-V anti-torpedo decoys.
The SKWS upgrade for twin AAW and ASW purpose use the jointly developed software with advanced algorithm, embedding DCNS CONTRALTO-V reaction software to support fully automatic firing.
The decoys will be placed in the water in the best way to confuse the torpedo together with ship evasive maneuvers, the companies said.
With advanced algorithms, this system will provide the best firing solution and protection of all types of ships against torpedo attack.
Terma develops products and systems for defense, non-defense and security applications, including command-and-control systems, radar systems, self-protection systems for ships and aircraft, space technology and advanced aerostructures for the international aircraft industry.
