kta naval systems, a joint venture of Germany’s thyssenkrupp Marine Systems and Norway’s Kongsberg, has unveiled a new combat system for non-nuclear submarines at the 7th International Submarine Conference SubCon in Kiel.

The combat system is called ORCCA and was developed as part of a joint drive between Germany and Norway who are buying Type 212CD (common design) air-independent propulsion submarines together.

In 2017, it was unveiled that kta naval systems would be the exclusive supplier of combat systems for TKMS submarines.

ORCCA enables its operator to conduct an integrated data analysis from a wide range of systems on board via one multifunctional console. Subsystems from the respective customer countries can easily be integrated, it was further said.

What is more, the system is suitable for all submarine classes of thyssenkrupp Marine Systems – whether newly built or retrofitted. ORCCA enables its operators to interact as part of a unit in multinational missions like NATO or EU missions.

“We brought together the expertise of our colleagues at Atlas Elektronik and Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace to create a unique combat system,” Kathrin Rohloff, CEO of kta naval systems, said. “We will equip all future submarines from thyssenkrupp with this highly integrated system.”
