Atlas Elektronik Canada has signed an agreement with Magellan Aerospace for the design and development phase of the SeaSpider Anti Torpedo Torpedo (ATT) programme, the company announced on 12 April.

Under the terms of the agreement, Magellan will lead the design and development of the SeaSpider ATT rocket motor and warhead sections of the torpedo that include design, build, test and product qualification. Atlas Canada will manage and support test and trials activity in Canada, and will provide final assembly and logistics services during serial production of the SeaSpider ATT.

Developed in Germany by Atlas Elektronik together with the German Ministry of Defence, SeaSpider ATT can be utilised by surface vessels and submarines for ‘hardkill’ defence against attacking torpedoes.

The initial CAD$19 million phase of the programme was launched in January 2019 and is expected to conclude in 2023.
