Thales will equip South Korean Navy submarines with its X-band satcom terminals as part of the navy’s KSS II batch 2 submarine programme.

South Korea has ordered a total of six Type 214 submarines of the conventional air independent propulsion (AIP)-equipped diesel-electric submarine family from the German submarine shipbuilder Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW).

The Satcom terminal delivers high tracking performance, high-level integrated communications, and enhanced voice and data transmission capabilities.
