Naval Group has signed nine different Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with Australian companies to manufacture its countermeasure solutions for the Royal Australian Navy in Australia.
Naval Group Pacific is proposing a breakthrough in anti-torpedo countermeasures for Australia’s submarine and surface ship programs with CANTO®, the latest countermeasure generation based on Dilution/Confusion multi-effects.
This breakthrough in the field of anti-torpedo defence, applies the dilution/confusion concept to defend High Value and Mission Essential Units by generating a high-level acoustic signals over 360-degree, covering the full frequency range of the attacking torpedo.
This anti-torpedo system, fitted with its associated reaction module CONTRALTO®, which computes the most appropriate evasive manoeuvre and deployment sequence once a threat is detected, is already in service in the French Navy and in several Foreign navies.
François Romanet, CEO, Naval Group Pacific said “This capability will provide navies with a combat-proven solution and if manufactured in Australia, will provide transfer new technology and skills to local industry.”
