The future Type 212CD submarines will benefit from integrating iXblue inertial navigation systems, the company revealed at Eurosatory 2022.

Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace has selected iXBlue to provide inertial navigation systems (INS) aboard the future Type 212 Common Design (CD) submarines for the German and Norwegian navies.

The Type 212CD boats, being built by ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS), will be fitted with iXblue's Marins M8 INS.

Speaking to Shephard on 14 June during Eurosatory 2022, iXblue regional sales manager Enzo Aldrovandi said the company hoped the collaboration could open doors to future programmes.

Marins-series INS equipment is widely deployed on submarines, including UK RN boats, and they will also equip the Swedish Navy's future Blekinge-class A26 submarines.
