Indra has signed a deal with Atlas Elektronik to provide Rigel electronic defence systems for the German Navy.

Under the contract, Indra will supply five Rigel radar electronic support measures/radar electronic countermeasures systems (RESM/RECM).

The electronic defence systems will be installed on the German Navy’s second series of K130 corvette-class ships.

In June, Atlas Elektronik and Thales Deutschland partnered to provide the combat system of the German class K130 corvette.

Atlas Elektronik will deliver the combat system hardware for the latest set of five ships.

Indra’s Rigel RESM/RECM system is designed to provide the ship with a capability to track the electromagnetic space and detect active radar emissions when operating in complex environments.

“The system allows vessels to use disturbance and deception techniques to counter multiple active threats simultaneously.”

Integrated with broadband digital reception technology, the system allows vessels to use disturbance and deception techniques to counter multiple active threats simultaneously.

The German Navy’s first series of K130 corvette class ships are already equipped with the system, which meets Nato requirements.

According to Indra, the system has proven its capabilities when tested in complex real electromagnetic scenarios.

To date, Indra’s electronic defence systems have been equipped on more than 100 naval vessels worldwide.

Indra is also supporting several other naval projects and working with shipyards such as Navantia, the Italian Fincantieri, the German tkMS, the Korean DSME and HHI and the Dutch Damen.

Last month, Leonardo was selected to deliver OTO 76/62 Super Rapid naval gun systems for the German Navy’s latest K130 corvettes.
