MTG Marinetechnik has recently signed a contract with the Finnish company Surma Ltda for the supply of the SURMA survivability simulation software.

SURMA has been selected by MTG after a thorough market analyses. SURMA will greatly expand the existing portfolio for navy combat survivability analyses in the early planning stages of naval designs. Naval vessels are highly complex and incorporate a high financial but also technical risk.

To reduce the technical but also the financial risk, special analyses on survivability aspects have to be incorporated into the whole design process as early as possible.

The results of the survivability analyses have a direct input to the design itself and with the help of SURMA, the design can be further optimised using reliable simulation results thus leading to the most efficient and economical solution.
