The company has been selected to deliver enhanced navigation equipment for the newly constructed Norwegian and German U212CD submarines.

It can be revealed that the German and Norwegian U212CD submarines, initially built by ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, will now be equipped with the iXblue Marins M8 inertial navigation system, interfaced with the KTA Naval Systems’ ORCCA combat management system.

According to iXblue, the Marins is the company’s highest-grade inertial navigation system, boasting high levels of accuracy as well as absolute discretion and long-term reliability.

Currently, the systems are in use across the “full fleet” of British Royal Navy submarines as well as the Swedish Navy’s A19 and A26.

“The U212CD is a major program for the European naval industry, and we are very proud to be on board and supply this new generation of submarines. With the Marins Series, TKMS and Kongsberg have not only chosen highly performant navigation systems, but they will also benefit from well proven and ‘off-the shelf’ systems that will participate to further reducing the risks and costs of the overall program,” Enzo Aldrovandi, regional sales manager for iXblue, said.

“We would like to thank them for their renewed trust on this impressive program and look forward to our ongoing collaboration with them.”

The selection of the Marins system for the U212CD submarines forms the latest collaboration between the company and the respective navies, with the system in use within Germany’s F122 Bremen class and F124 Brandenburg class, as well as Norway’s Jan Mayen OPVs.
