The contract was awarded through a comparative and thorough process governed by Kongsberg Thyssen Atlas JV (kta naval systems) and tkMS (thyssenKrupp marine systems) with other vendors.

The Kongsberg technology package consists of SA9510S MKII Mine Avoidance and Navigation Sonars (MANS) plus a Bottom Navigation System (BNS) containing EM2040 MIL multibeam echo sounders and an EA640 echosounder suite.

These sensors provide valuable input to kta naval systems’ ORCCA Navigation system to enable safe, indigenous submerged operation of the submarines.

ORCCA, the most modern combat system for non-nuclear submarines on the market, is the first of its kind in combining maximum adaptability with the highest level of IT security.

It enables operators to conduct an integrated data analysis from a wide range of systems onboard via one multifunctional console – and this results in rapid, well-informed decision-making processes.

The Type 212CD class (for Common Design) is a submarine class developed by ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) for the Norwegian and German navies. The class is derived from the Type 212 submarine class but will be significantly larger than the 212 class.
