Thales Germany delivers network upgrade to EAZS M Neustadt

The Thales-developed SAGD system is already in use on the F125 frigates.

Thales Germany has delivered the SAGD communication network upgrade to the Navy Damage Defense Training Center (EAZS M) in Neustadt (Holstein).

The Federal Office for Equipment, Information Technology and Use of the Bundeswehr (BAAINBw) commissioned the digital communication network made to manage the Damage Defense and Combat Service (SAGD).

Thales noted that the TETRA technology-based communication network allows the coordination of all measures to prevent internal damage during emergency.

To achieve operational readiness, the damage prevention and combat service training provides each individual navy crew person with the required skill set to react correctly on board in case of any damage.

Thales Germany Program Center NAVAL director Thomas Jacob said: “We are pleased that we have succeeded in handing over the SAGD training system to the EAZS M together with the German Navy and the Federal Office for Equipment, Information Technology and Use of the Bundeswehr (BAAINBw), despite the Corona-related circumstances in recent months.

“With the extended SAGD system, we ensure seamless real-time communication and even more security in the consistent recording of the situation.

“We are aware of how important these requirements are in order to be optimally prepared for an emergency onboard and to train under real conditions.”

The Thales-developed SAGD system is already in use on the F125 frigates and the task force supplier (EGV) Bonn.

The SAGD communication network version is being delivered for the second batch of K130 corvettes and has already been commissioned for the F126 frigates.
