New Moroccan frigate sails through Sea Acceptance Trials

Tue, 30 Oct 2012 10:38:27 EST

Recently, the third and last of the Royal Moroccan Navy's new Sigma class frigates was subjected to its Sea Acceptance Trials (SAT). All Thales systems on board of the ship as well as the functional chains for Anti Air Warfare, Anti Surface Warfare and Electronic Warfare performed flawlessly. Tacticos, Thales's Combat Management System is the first CMS in the world to have been successfully teamed with the MBDA VL MICA. The ship was commissioned in September 2012.

Thales equipment on board of Allal Ben Abdallah includes the Tacticos Combat Management System, the SMART-S Mk2 surveillance radar, the LIROD Mk2 fire control radar, the Target Designation Sights, the UMS 4132 KINGKLIP Hull Mounted Sonar, the TUUM-4 Under Water Telephone, the EW Suite (integrated ESM Vigile 100 S & ECM Scorpion 2L), the integrated navigation system (INS), the Bathythermograph Mk21 and the integrated communication system.

Mid 2011 and end last year, the other two ships of this class, Tarik Ben Ziyad and Sultan Moulay Ismail, were commissioned so that the program is now concluded and in warranty phase.

Gerben Edelijn, CEO of Thales Nederland is proud of the excellent result: 'This SAT demonstrates that our vast experience in sensor technology and Combat System Integration enables us to realize such a complex programme within the time frame agreed upon. This program reinforces our relationship with the Royal Moroccan Navy as well with Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding.'
