ITT (NYSE: ITT) picked up a deal from the Norwegian Defense Logistics Organization to provide six tactical radar Electronic Support Measures (ESM) and surveillance systems for its Ula Class submarines.
According to the firm, “ESM systems play an important role in a submarine’s defenses. By monitoring electromagnetic energy, the crew can detect, intercept, locate, or analyze sources of those signals to detect other vessels or objects, and determine if any of these are a threat to the submarine.”
The solution is currently employed by several navies around the globe.
“With our established in-country support and ability to offer early delivery of a solution that provides commonality across the Norwegian fleet, ITT is committed to helping Norway achieve its mission, ” said Bill Devlin, vice president of ITT’s Radar Reconnaissance and Acoustic Systems business area. “This win continues to position us as a premier international supplier of ESM systems.”
