KTA Naval Systems introduces ORCCA
KTA Naval Systems has introduced a new combat system for non-nuclear submarines at SubCon 2019.
KTA Naval Systems is a joint venture of Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems and Kongsberg.
The combat system, called ORCCA, combines adaptability with the highest level of IT security, enabling operators to conduct an integrated data analysis from a wide range of systems on board via one multifunctional console for a sound and quick decision-making process.
The modular design enables the integration of new technologies and adaptation to changing deployment scenarios throughout the lifetime of the system. Customers can constantly advance their combat system onboard to adapt to new requirements.
ORCCA will enable users to interact as part of a unit in multinational missions such as NATO or EU missions. The communication between the systems onboard and the national and international domain modules is separated by a special IT infrastructure.
Kathrin Rohloff, CEO of KTA Naval Systems, said: ‘ORCCA is the most modern combat system for non-nuclear submarines on the market. We brought together the expertise of our colleagues at Atlas Elektronik and Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace to create a unique combat system. We will equip all future submarines from Thyssenkrupp with this highly integrated system.’
The system can be used for all submarine classes of Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems, both as a retrofit or for new build boats.
