This contract is the second government-to-government (G2G) contract between CCC and the Chilean Navy for advanced submarine solutions offered by OSI. The first contract, signed in 2020, provided upgrades to the navigation capability of two THOMPSON class submarines of the Chilean Navy.

OSI solutions are deployed in navies of 24 countries, including on submarines of Sweden, UK, Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, Indonesia, South Africa, and Brazil.

Based in Burnaby, BC, OSI also develops and delivers integrated bridge systems for warships, and C2 systems for small craft. This most recent G2G contract with the Chilean Navy is a critical part of OSI’s market penetration strategy for Chile, made possible with CCC support.

Scorpene class subs

The Scorpène-class submarines are a family of diesel-electric attack submarines designed by French shipbuilder Naval Group (formerly known as DCNS) in cooperation with Spanish shipbuilder Navantia.

The Scorpène-class submarines have a top speed of 20 knots (37 km/h; 23 mph) when submerged and 12 knots (22 km/h; 14 mph) when on the surface.

They have a range of 6,500 nautical miles (12,000 km) at a speed of 8 knots (15 km/h; 9.2 mph) when on the surface, and a range of 550 nautical miles (1,020 km; 630 mi) at a speed of 5 knots (9.3 km/h; 5.8 mph) when submerged. The submarines have an endurance of up to 50 days, or 50 days plus an additional 21 days when using the AIP system.
