SEA to Provide Torpedo Launcher Systems for Thai, Philippines & Malaysian Navies

https://www.navyrecognition.com/index.php/news/defence-news/2017/november-2017-navy-naval-forces-defense-industry-technology-maritime-security-global-news/5679-sea-to-provide-torpedo-launcher-systems-for-thai-philippines-malaysian-navies.html
 
Cohort company SEA will look to build upon growing demand in South East Asia for its torpedo and decoy launcher systems when it highlights the capability at the Defense and Security exhibition in Ban Mai, Thailand, on November 6-9.

SEA has recently won an order to provide Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in South Korea with Torpedo Launcher Systems (TLS) for two new frigates being built for the Philippines Navy and is also engaged in providing TLS and weapons handling systems for a new class of Combatant Ships under construction for Malaysia. This follows the supply of a TLS for the Royal Thai Navy’s latest frigate, which was built by DSME in South Korea.

SEA is looking to build upon this pedigree with the supply of a triple trainable deck mounted system for a further frigate under consideration by the Royal Thai Navy. In addition, there are several more opportunities in frigate new build and refurbishment projects throughout SE Asia.

One of the major benefits of SEA’s TLS is that they can be configured to fire any NATO standard light weight torpedo, enabling operators to benefit from the flexibility of choosing the best weapon independently and the option of re-configuring during the life of the ship.

TORPEDO LAUNCHER SYSTEMS

Providing rapid launch of a range of weapon types, available in multiple launcher configurations to suit differing platforms.

SEA has over 30 years of experience of supplying and supporting integrated Torpedo launcher Systems and is the primary supplier to the UK Royal Navy.

Providing rapid launch of a range of weapon types, available in multiple launcher configurations to suit differing platforms.

The SEA Lightweight Torpedo Launcher is capable of deploying NATO compatible lightweight torpedoes and can be easily configured to launch the US Mk 44, Mk 46 and Mk 54 torpedoes (subject to consent), plus UK Sting Ray and Italian A244S.

It comes with an electronics suite of varying complexity depending on configuration and operational requirement. The SEA flexible Torpedo Launch System is designed to meet the requirements of ships varying in size from Coastal Patrol Vessels to Aircraft Carriers.

Key Features

-> The system provides a close range, rapid reaction weapon launch capability which is designed to store, handle, load, pre-set and discharge lightweight torpedoes from the deck of surface vessels.

-> Design is based on the proven UK MoD Magazine Torpedo Launcher System

-> The tubes are glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) composite for light weight, low maintenance and proven long life.

-> Tubes are fitted at the ends with a breech mechanism and a muzzle closure assembly.

-> Access ports (hatches) customised to the weapon type to be used, enable data connections and arming arrangements to be made up to the moment of launch.

-> The electronics suite provides calculation of a Fire Control Solution predicting target position from Sonar and own ship’s data.

-> Local and remote jettison facility

-> Fully environmentally tested

-> Trainable Launcher Mount in triple or dual configurations to meet the customer's requirement.

-> Stand-alone or integrated as part of CMS.

Another widely used system for our frigates, end-users count among them:

UK Royal Navy
Royal Thai Navy
Royal Malaysian Navy

The launchers are unique in that they allow for multiple NATO standard torpedos to be used, and even allows and can be easily configured to launch the US Mk 44, Mk 46 and Mk 54 torpedoes (subject to consent), plus UK Sting Ray and Italian A244S.

More recently, SEA won an order to provide Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in South Korea with similar Torpedo Launcher Systems (TLS) for two new HDF-3000 frigates being built for the Philippine Navy. However, SEA’s biggest success is the on-going supply of TLS and weapons handling systems for a new class of Littoral Combat Ships under construction in Malaysia for the Royal Malaysian Navy. The systems include a significant level of content manufactured in Malaysia.
