Terma and DCNS Have Developed a Fully Automatic Anti-Torpedo Decoy System

At the Defense & Security Equipment International exhibition, Terma and DCNS announced that their technical cooperation has resulted in an important improvement for ships with a need for protection against torpedoes.

Terma and DCNS have developed a fully automatic anti-torpedo decoy system. The system uses the Terma 130 mm Soft Kill Weapon System (SKWS) to fire DCNS CANTO-V anti-torpedo decoy. The SKWS upgrade for twin AAW and ASW purposes use the jointly developed software with advanced algorithm (embedding DCNS CONTRALTO-V reaction software) to support fully automatic firing. This provides the ship with an effective protection against torpedoes attacks. The decoys will be placed in the water in the best way to confuse the torpedo together with ship evasive maneuvers proposal.

With advanced algorithms, this system will provide the best firing solution and protection of all types of ships against torpedo attack.
