Sea has announced the commencement of a strategic partnership with Cornes Technologies, which will see the companies collaborate to expand the maritime domain capabilities of Japan through technology solutions for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and torpedo launcher systems. 

The partnership will allow the Japanese maritime sector to benefit as it will be exposed to SEA’s ASW solutions, which are designed for smaller platforms such as offshore patrol vessels and uncrewed autonomous vessels, speeding up the development of its capabilities as it attempts to catch up with other nations in the region.

GlobalData holds various data in its Global Underwater Warfare System (UWS) Market report. China is the largest forecasted procurer of torpedoes for 2023 – out of countries in and around Asia – spending $49.5m. Taiwan follows, with $36.3m.

Other significant market players are South Korea with $19.3m and Japan with $16.8m, showing that this agreement between SEA and Cornes Technologies is much needed for Japan if it is to keep up with the capabilities of other nations as China grows its military presence exponentially in Asia.
