Weapon control and command systems for the German Navy
The weapon control and command system is at the heart of each navy frigate and corvette. With the TACTICOS basic technology, Thales has a weapon control and command system based on an architecture developed by Thales for a fully distributed command system (Sensor, Weapon Control and Command System-Fully Distributed, SEWACO_FD).
Modular weapon control and command system for a multitude of missions and vessel types
TACTICOS is a flexible Combat Management System (CMS) suitable for Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPV) and frigates. It includes both the traditional warfare combat operations and the new maritime security operations functionalities.
An important feature of the system is its modularity which makes it flexibly scalable - from small systems with limited weapon control and command system functionality to highly complex units with comprehensive functions. It is known for its reliability and the capability to practically integrate any sensor and effector. TACTICOS provides a multitude of interfaces to subsystems.
Its architecture convinces with certified openness and scalability. Its progressive technological orientation is reflected in its global acceptance by customers.
Facts on the most successful weapon control and command system for fleets worldwide:
- The latest generation tailored to global threats is TACTICOS Baseline 2.
- Thales Deutschland offers the full scope of logistical support and thus ensures short response times and a global supply for systems delivered and being deployed.
- Selected by leading navies: TACTICOS technology is operated by 20 navies on board of more than 180 ships (from small patrols to full sized frigates and destroyers).
- TACTICOS is suited both to civil and military users requiring an effective and affordable solution to solve the technical and interoperability challenges during the cooperation and coordination of different maritime agencies.
In close cooperation with Thales Nederland and other international companies in the Thales group, Thales Deutschland is the traditional partner and equipment provider of the German Navy. As a manufacturer, Thales Deutschland offers the full scope of logistical support and thus ensures short response times and a global supply for systems delivered and being deployed.
