Indra has signed a contract with Atlas Elektronik to provide its Rigel electronic defence systems for the German Navy's new series of K130 corvettes, the company announced on 11 December.

The contract will see Indra provide five Rigel Radar Electronic Support Measures/Radar Electronic Countermeasures systems, which allows the ship to track the electromagnetic space and detect active radar emissions in its environment. It also allows multiple active threats to be countered simultaneously by means of disturbance and deception techniques.

Indra's Rigel system incorporates advanced digital reception technology to provide maximum detection range and sensitivity to radar signals.

The first series of K130 corvette class ships, currently in service with the German Navy, already operate with this system, which meets NATO requirements.
