Naval Group has signed nine Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreements with Australian companies for in-country manufacture of countermeasure solutions for the Royal Australian Navy.

Naval Group Pacific is proposing its CANTO anti-torpedo countermeasures for Australia’s submarine and surface ship programmes. The system applies the dilution/confusion concept to defend high value and mission essential units by generating high-level acoustic signals over 360-degrees, covering the full frequency range of the attacking torpedo.

Companies that have signed the MoUs include Archer Enterprises, Axiom Precision Manufacturing, Baron Rubber, BB Engineering, Campagno Engineering, GPC Electronics, Land Air Sea Space, MacTaggart Scott Australia and Verseng Group.

François Romanet, CEO, Naval Group Pacific, said: ‘This capability will provide navies with a combat-proven solution and if manufactured in Australia, will provide transfer new technology and skills to local industry.’
