Atlas Elektronik to Modernise German Navy’s Mine Hunting Vessel

Atlas Elektronik will work to renovate three mine hunting vessels of the Frankenthal class (Type 332), currently in service with the German Navy. The corresponding contract worth 78.5 million Euro, was signed by the parties on December 23 last year, at the BAAINBw in Koblenz.

The objective of this project, which bears the designation MJ 332 CL, is to equip the three boats with the Integrated Mine Counter Measure System (IMCMS) and the underwater vehicle SeaFox of Atlas Elektronik GmbH.

On top of that, the vessels will be given the capability to control the ‘Seehund’ ROV, which until now has only been integrated on the minesweepers of the Ensdorf class (Type 352). The project is planned to run until 2020.

The German Navy currently owns 10 mine hunting vessels of the Frankenthal class in service. This project aims to ensure the uniformity of the mine hunting combat system and the capability of using the underwater vehicle on a total of eight units. The remaining two boats will be used as mission platforms for mine clearance divers.

Atlas Elektronik presently holds a strong position in all fields of maritime high technology, from command and control systems including radio & communication systems for submarines, surface combatants and mine warfare systems and ranging to heavyweight torpedoes, coastal surveillance systems and in-service support. It has established a worldwide customer portfolio. The electronics specialist is a joint company of ThyssenKrupp and Airbus DS and has a workforce of 2000 highly skilled employees.
