Patria to Deliver Acoustic Minesweeping Systems to the Belgian and Royal Netherlands Navies

in collaboration with Belgium Naval & Robotics

Patria has been awarded a contract for the delivery of Patria Sonac ACS Acoustic Minesweeping Systems to the Belgian and Royal Netherlands navies by Belgium Naval & Robotics, the consortium made up of ECA GROUP and Naval Group. The systems will be part of a fully integrated hardware and software minesweeping system developed by ECA GROUP. Following earlier successes, this contract reinforces Patria’s strategic efforts to become one of the leading providers of Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Maritime Mine Countermeasures (MMCM) solutions and services. The new delivery contract further improves the company’s competitiveness and position in the global MMCM market and represents an important step in Patria’s new growth strategy.

Patria Sonac ACS fully supports Mine Setting, Target Simulation, as well as Mine Jamming modes of operation. The sweep is capable of accurately reproducing true pre-recorded or synthesized underwater or surface target acoustic signatures, which is critical against modern intelligent sea mines. Patria Sonac ACS supports standalone operation but can also be integrated as part of any multi-influence minesweeping system.

”We are pleased to have been chosen by Belgium Naval & Robotics via ECA GROUP to supply the Belgian and Royal Netherlands navies with our solution as a critical component of a naval minesweeping toolbox. The development of Patria Sonac ACS is a result of a long-term involvement in the minesweeping and sea mine areas”, says Jonas Geust, President of Patria’s Systems Business Unit.
