thyssenkrupp Marine Systems and Kongsberg Joint Venture (JV) kta Naval Systems introduced a new combat system ORCCA for non-nuclear submarines.

The system was introduced at the seventh International Submarine Conference SubCon 2019 that took place in Kiel, Germany.

ORCCA combines optimal adaptability with the highest level of IT security.

It allows its operator to conduct an integrated data analysis from a wide range of systems on board via one multifunctional console, which enables a fast decision-making process.

kta Naval Systems CEO Kathrin Rohloff said: “ORCCA is the most modern combat system for non-nuclear submarines on the market.

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

The modular design enables the integration of new technologies and the adaptation to
changing deployment scenarios throughout the life cycle of the system.

Customers can regularly update their combat system to comply with new requirements and ensure that they always have the latest technology onboard. Customers can decide to upgrade ORCCA even ten, 20 or 30 years after the purchase.

ORCCA demonstrates flexibility from the moment of installation. For example, subsystems from the respective customer countries can be easily integrated.

The system can also be used for all submarine classes of thyssenkrupp Marine Systems, including newly built or retrofitted.

ORCCA enables its operators to interact as part of a unit in multinational missions such as NATO or EU missions.

The communication between the systems onboard and to the national and international domain modules is separated by a special IT infrastructure.

ORCCA guarantees high speed and the highest level of security across multiple communication channels.
