Indra has teamed with Atlas Elektronik to provide electronic systems for the German navy’s Braunschweig-class K130 corvettes.
Indra has been contracted by the navy to provide the second series of the corvette with five of its latest generation Rigel radar electronic support measures/radar electronic countermeasures systems, alongside German partner Atlas.
Indra has previously integrated this type of system into the first series of K130 corvettes that are in service with the German navy, so is supplying a system that is customer-proven, it said.
The Rigel system provides the vessel with the ability to monitor the electromagnetic spectrum and detect active radar emissions, and thereby counter multiple active threats simultaneously by using disturbance and deception techniques.
