D&S 2017: SEA highlights growing demand for TLS
SEA is seeing growing demand for its torpedo and decoy launcher systems in South East Asia.
The company has recently secured an order to provide Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea with Torpedo Launcher Systems (TLS) for two new frigates being built for the Philippines Navy. This order follows the supply of a TLS for the Royal Thai Navy’s latest frigate, which was built by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering in South Korea.
The company is also providing TLS and weapon handling systems for combatant ships under construction for Malaysia.
SEA said it is also looking to supply a triple trainable deck mounted system for a further frigate under consideration by the Royal Thai Navy.
The TLS can be configured to fire any NATO standard light weight torpedo, enabling operators to benefit from the flexibility of selecting the best weapon and the option of re-configuring during the life of the ship.
The modular nature of the SEA TLS also means that by using a common tube selection panel as part of the combat management system, the fire control electronics can be adapted to interface with the ship’s decoy launchers and the TLS.
David Hinds, South East Asia VP, SEA, said: ‘Our systems are based on over 30 years of experience supplying and supporting the UK Royal Navy and there is a growing demand for our launchers in South East Asia.’
