Kongsberg Gruppen introduces Vanguard

27th September 2019 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg Gruppen has introduced a new naval ship design called Vanguard, designed to meet modern threats across a range of roles.

The vessel has been developed to fulfil the needs of coastal nations for both military and civilian operations, such as search and rescue, harbour and assets protection, subsea survey, anti-access/area-denial, anti-submarine warfare and mine clearance, and detection and disposal.

Vanguard is designed with a multi-role hangar for air, surface and sub-surface assets. Easily interchangeable mission modules and extensive use of unmanned vehicles enables quick change of operational roles. The Vanguard is also based on an open architecture to integrate and take advantage of new technology as it becomes available.

The vessel is based on civilian and commercial ship design, combined with flexible military mission packs.

Eirik Lie, president, Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, said: ‘The Vanguard by Kongsberg represents a game changer in naval operations. Combining our experience from the maritime, offshore and naval sectors, this innovative concept provides an adaptable and affordable solution to meet the operational needs of coastal nations.’
