Thales electronics for Indonesian frigates


HENGELO, Netherlands, Nov. 19 (UPI)


Full mission suites for PKR-class guided missile frigates are being delivered to Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding by Thales Nederland.


The mission suites include the TACTICOS combat management system, SMART-S Mk2 surveillance radar, STIR 1.2 Mk2 EO fire control system, KINGKLIP sonar, LINK-Y data link, and other naval communication and navigation systems.


The equipment will be installed by Thales onto two frigates being built for the Indonesian Navy, Thales said, and first delivery of its mission system components will take place at the end of next year.


Thales said it will also increase its existing industrial cooperation with PT LEN Industri of Indonesia, which will develop part of the combat management system software suite. Local Indonesian industry will also be involved with service support for the equipment.


"This agreement strengthens the decades-long relationship between the Indonesian navy and Thales," said Gerben Edelijn, chief executive officer of Thales Nederland. "It further highlights our ability and know-how to involve the local industry in the transfer of technology and be a supplier or choice to a demanding world-class navy."

The acquisition of this ship is part of the further modernization and expansion of the Indonesian Navy, TNI-AL.


The main missions and tasks of the SIGMA PKR 10514 will be in the domains of naval warfare as well as Maritime Security missions and tasks. Also, the ship may be used for humanitarian support tasks.


The main characteristics of the SIGMA PKR 10514 are:

The ship will be built according to the successful SIGMA modular building strategy, as a sequel to the earlier built four SIGMA Corvettes for TNI AL. This means that modules of the frigate will be built in Europe as well as locally at PT PAL in Surabaya Indonesia. The assembly and trials of SIGMA PKR 10514 will take place in and from Surabaya, Indonesia.
