Indonesia, DSME Set to Strike Deal for Submarines

(Source: Korea Joongang Daily; issued Feb 20, 2019)

Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) is in the final stages of negotiations for a massive deal to export submarines to Indonesia, company sources told the JoongAng Ilbo on Wednesday.

According to the sources, the Indonesian Navy is planning to purchase three new submarines from DSME for $1.2 billion. Jane’s 360, an online defense media channel, also reported last week that Indonesia and DSME are close to signing an order for the three 1,400-ton submarines, a modified version of the South Korean Navy’s Chang Bogo-class diesel-electric attack submarines.

If the contract is awarded to DSME, the shipbuilder will have won two consecutive submarine deals with Indonesia. In 2011, Korea won a $1.1 billion contract for three 1,400-ton submarines as part of Indonesia’s 2024 Defense Strategic Plan.

The three new submarines are to be built by DSME in cooperation with the Indonesian state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL.

“During the final negotiation stage, discussions will take place on how to split the work,” said a defense industry source. “Component production and final assembly will be done at the Okpo Shipyard in Korea and a shipyard in Surabaya, Indonesia.”

According to the sources, the contract is expected to be signed next month as the two sides have no major disagreements. The contract was supposed to be signed last year, but Indonesia requested more time for review and the deadline was postponed to March this year.

DSME opened a technology cooperation center at the PT PAL Shipyard in October last year as part of its efforts to secure the contract. One month later, it signed an agreement with the shipyard to form a consortium.

Sources said DSME also had an advantage because Indonesia is already operating Korean-built submarines. DSME’s deal with Indonesia in 2011 was Korea’s largest defense export project at that time. With the contract, Korea became the fifth submarine exporter in the world. Of the three submarines purchased by Indonesia, two were built in Korea and delivered later, and the last one is currently being built at the PT PAL Shipyard.

If DSME secures the follow-on order, Korea will supply six out of the 12 new submarines that the Indonesian Navy plans to introduce.

Launch of Indonesia’s third Nagapasa-class submarine delayed by silting

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

26 February 2019

Key Points

- The launch of Indonesia’s third submarine has been delayed by heavy silting at PT PAL’s main dock
- Indonesian engineers are currently co-ordinating a risky operation to relocate the boat for launch at the shipyard’s Semarang dock

(IHS Markit/Ridzwan Rahmat)

The launch of Indonesia’s third Nagapasa (Type 209/1400)-class diesel-electric submarine (SSK) has been delayed, but shipyard officials have devised a workaround to ensure that the vessel will take to the water in the coming weeks.

An industry source who informed Jane’s of the situation has attributed these delays to heavy silting in waters off the Madura Strait, and the Surabaya Western Shipping Route, which is referred to in local navigation maps as the Alur Pelayaran Barat Surabaya (APBS).

“The silting situation was aggravated in recent years by construction work at the Terminal Teluk Lamong,” said the source, in reference to the newly constructed terminal port at Surabaya. “Sediments from the construction have drifted towards the entire Tanjung Perak area, including the PT PAL dock where Alugoro was supposed to be launched. Now the waters are too shallow to safely launch the vessel,” he added.

Alugoro is the third-in-series overall for the Nagapasa class, but the first to be assembled locally at PT PAL’s facilities in Surabaya. Its assembly was done in collaboration with engineers from South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) as part of a technology transfer programme.

The boat is part of a KRW1.3 trillion (USD1.2 billion) contract signed between DSME and the Indonesian government in December 2011 for three SSKs. The vessel has an overall length of 61.2 m, an overall beam of 6.25 m, and a hull draught of 5.5 m.

Indonesia begins installation of Millennium Gun, VL MICA on lead Martadinata frigate

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

07 March 2019



Key Points

- Indonesia’s first Martadinata-class frigate is being equipped with close-range air defence capabilities
- Installation of these weapons on both vessels is expected to complete this year

Indonesian state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL has begun installing the Rheinmetall Oerlikon 35 mm Millennium Gun and the VL MICA air defence missile system on the country’s lead Martadinata (SIGMA 10514)-class guided-missile frigate.

An image of the installation works forwarded to Jane’s by an industry source in Surabaya on 8 March shows the vessel is berthed at PT PAL’s dock in Semarang, with scaffoldings erected in its forward section. The Millennium Gun is being fitted on a pedestal just ahead of the ship’s bridge, while the 12-cell VL MICA system is located just behind its main gun.

Indonesia leans towards Iver Huitfeldt class for frigate acquisition

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

13 March 2019

Key Points

- A variant of Denmark’s Iver Huitfeldt class has emerged as a front-runner in Indonesia’s USD720 million two-frigate acquisition programme
- Development follows a defence industry co-operation agreement signed between Denmark’s Odense Maritime Technology, and the Indonesian Navy’s Naval Design Centre

Defence planners from the Indonesian Ministry of Defence (MoD) are increasingly leaning towards a variant of the Iver Huitfeldt class in their quest to acquire two more frigates for the country's navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL).

The frigates are being acquired as part of the second phase of the Minimum Essential Force (MEF) modernisation blueprint, which runs from 2015 to 2019. Indonesia acquired two SIGMA 10514 vessels from Damen that now serve as the Martadinata class as part of this programme, but the country has a requirement for at least four more hulls in the longer term as part of wider MEF requirements.

A piece of unclassified correspondence between the country's defence minister, Ryamizard Ryacudu, and the cabinet secretary of President Joko Widodo that was provided to Jane's on 13 March made the case for the Iver Huitfeldt class as one that features "reliable combat capabilities, and can operate in the extremities of Indonesia's exclusive economic zone".

"In reference to the TNI-AL's frigate acquisition programme, and how we are now approaching the final year of the 2015-19 strategic plan without a decision, we hereby would like to request for a closed meeting [with the cabinet] to further discuss an acquisition plan for these ships," the correspondence reads.

The meeting, which was originally requested for 5 March 2019, would have also been used by MoD officials to further present their case for selecting the variant of the Iver Huitfeldt class offered by Danish company Odense Maritime Technology (OMT), including its technical specifications.

Indonesia to receive ZOKA torpedo countermeasures for Nagapasa submarines

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

14 March 2019

Key Points

- Indonesia's Nagapasa-class submarines will be equipped with jammers and decoys from Turkish company Aselsan
- The equipment will provide the vessels with protection and deception capabilities against hostile torpedoes

Turkish defence electronics company Aselsan is supplying its ZOKA range of acoustic torpedo countermeasure jammers and decoys for the Indonesian Navy's (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL's) submarines, a spokesperson from the company has confirmed with Jane's .

Aselsan declined to reveal the submarine type that the jammers and decoys would be deployed from, but subsequent verifications by Jane's with TNI-AL sources have established that the equipment will go on board the service's Nagapasa (Type 209/1400)-class diesel-electric boats (SSKs)

The ZOKA line of effectors consists of jammers and acoustic decoys that can operate in active, passive, and combined modes. The jammers emit noises that have been designed to saturate the acoustic operating frequencies of known torpedoes, thus masking its host submarine's movements from hostile munitions.

Meanwhile, its decoys can be programmed to simulate the acoustic and hydrographic characteristics of its host submarine, with the aim of deceiving and leading away torpedoes that may have locked on to the boat. These acoustic and hydrographic characteristics can be customised specifically to match those of the host submarine.

Indonesia acquired three Type 209/1400 boats from South Korean company Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) in 2011. The country has received two boats in the class, Nagapasa (403) and Ardadedali (404), and is awaiting launch of the final submarine, Alugoro (405).

The platform has an overall length of 61.2 m, an overall beam of 6.25 m, and a hull draught of 5.5 m. Each boat will be equipped with the ELAC KaleidoScope integrated submarine sonar suite from Wärtsilä ELAC Nautik.

Indonesia moves third Nagapasa submarine to alternative site for long-delayed launch

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

28 March 2019

Key Points

- PT PAL has successfully completed a risky operation to transfer the third Nagapasa-class submarine to an alternative launch site
- Vessel will be the first-ever submarine to be launched in Indonesia once it takes to the water

Indonesian state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL has successfully transferred its third Nagapasa (Type 209/1400)-class diesel-electric submarine (SSK) to an alternative launch site, after heavy silting was discovered at the original location where it was supposed to enter the water.

The vessel was transferred to its launch site at PT PAL's dock at Semarang via a 300-foot intermediate barge, and is now slated for launch on 12 April if all precedents for the ceremony are assessed to be in order, an industry source confirmed with Jane's on 28 March.

Alugoro was originally slated for launch at PT PAL's dock adjacent to Jalan Letnan Supriadi as early as October 2018. However, PT PAL engineers later discovered that the location has become too shallow owing to sedimentary deposits. The situation was aggravated in recent years by construction work at the nearby Terminal Teluk Lamong, said an industry source who first informed Jane's of the situation.

The submarine will now be launched at the same site where larger ships, such as the Philippine Navy's strategic sealift vessels (SSVs), first took to the water.

Alugoro is Indonesia's third-in-series overall for the Nagapasa class. But the boat is the first-ever submarine to be assembled locally at PT PAL's facilities in Surabaya. The SSK's assembly was done in collaboration with engineers from South Korea's Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) as part of a technology transfer programme.

Key Points

- Indonesia has finally launched its first-ever locally assembled naval submarine
- Launch has been long-delayed by silting issues at PT PAL's facilities in Surabaya

Indonesian shipbuilder PT PAL has launched the country's third Nagapasa (Type 209/1400)-class diesel-electric submarine (SSK).

The vessel, which will be in service as KRI Alugoro (405) once commissioned, was launched on 11 April at PT PAL's Semarang Dock in Surabaya Indonesia.

While third-in-class overall, Alugoro is the first-ever submarine to be assembled in Indonesia. Its assembly was done in collaboration with engineers from South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) as part of a technology transfer programme.

As reported by Jane's on multiple occasions, Alugoro was originally scheduled to be launched at PT PAL's purpose-built submarine launch facility along Jalan Letnan Supriadi as early as October 2018. However, the location was found to have become too shallow owing to sedimentary deposits.

The submarine was subsequently transferred to the company's Semarang Dock, located about 750 m away, via a 300-foot intermediary barge in March 2019. This is the same location where PT PAL has launched larger naval ships, such as the Philippine Navy's strategic sealift vessels (SSVs).

Alugoro is part of a KRW1.3 trillion (USD1.2 billion) contract signed between DSME and the Indonesian Ministry of Defence in December 2011 for three SSKs. The vessel derives its design from the Republic of Korea Navy's (RoKN's) Chang Bogo-class boats.

First-of-class KRI Nagapasa (403) was commissioned in August 2017, while second boat, Ardadedali (404), was handed over to the Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) in 2018.

The Nagapasa class has an overall length of 61.2 m, an overall beam of 6.25 m, and a hull draught of 5.5 m. It is powered by four MTU 12V 493 diesel generators, and has a contracted top speed of 21.5 kt when dived, and 11 kt when surfaced.

Key Points

- Indonesia has signed a USD1 billion contract with South Korean shipbuilding company DSME for three more diesel-electric submarines
- The Indonesian shipbuilder PT PAL will play a larger role in the construction of these vessels

The Indonesian Ministry of Defence has signed a USD1 billion contract with South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) for three Type 209/1400 diesel-electric submarines (SSKs). The contract was signed on 12 March in Bandung, West Java.

The vessels will be a follow-on to the countrys Nagapasa class, the contract for which was also awarded to DSME in 2011. Two submarines under this earlier contract have been commissioned by the Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL), while a third was launched at PT PALs premises in Surabaya on 11 March.

Industry sources, who have been updating Janes on the progress of the negotiations for the follow-on SSKs since early January 2019, have also confirmed that PT PAL will take on larger workshare roles in this new deal with DSME as part of a technology transfer programme.

For the first vessel under the new contract, which will be the fourth-in-class overall, two of the SSKs six modules will be constructed by PT PAL in Surabaya, while DSME will build the remaining four in South Korea. The Indonesian-built modules will be shipped to Okpo for assembly.

For the second submarine, which will be the fifth-in-class overall, PT PAL will construct four of the six modules in Surabaya, with DSME constructing the remaining two in Okpo. As with the first vessel, modules that have been constructed in Surabaya by PT PAL will be shipped to South Korea for final assembly.

For the third vessel in the contract, which will be the sixth-in-class overall, PT PAL initially proposed to build the entire submarine.

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) signed a contract on 12 April with representatives from the South Korean and Indonesian governments to deliver a second tranche of three Type 209/1400 diesel-electric submarines to the Indonesian Navy (TNI-AL).

DSME said in a filing to the Korean stock exchange that the contract is worth KRW1.162 trillion (USD1.02 billion) and would be supported through a loan agreement. In a statement, South Korea's Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) said this funding would be provided by the ExportImport Bank of Korea.

DSME also said that the submarine contract starts immediately and will conclude in late March 2026. DSME did not confirm the significance of the latter date but it is likely to coincide with the scheduled delivery of the last boat in the tranche. The delivery schedule for the first and second boats has not yet been confirmed.

The contract was signed in Indonesia one day after Indonesian shipbuilder PT PAL launched the TNI-ALs third Type 209/1400 submarine, which was acquired through a USD1.1 billion contract awarded to DSME in December 2011.

Under this initial tranche, the first two boats were delivered to the TNI-AL in 2017 and 2018 and PT PAL is constructing the third in Indonesia under licence from the South Korean shipbuilder. The third boat is scheduled to be commissioned later this year.

A similarly collaborative programme is expected to support the construction of the second-tranche submarines.

Janes has previously reported that the fourth submarine in the series will be built by DSME in South Korea, with PT PAL building two of the boats six modules in Indonesia. For the fifth submarine PT PAL will build four modules in Indonesia and DSME two, while on the sixth boat PT PAL will construct all six modules in Indonesia, with assistance from DSME.

Indonesia bolsters amphibious assault capabilities with two more landing ships

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

15 April 2019

Key Points

- Indonesia has acquired two more amphibious landing ships for its navy
- The vessels will improve the mobility of Indonesias armoured vehicles, including its main battle tanks


KRI <I>Teluk Bintuni</I> seen here during its sea trials. Indonesia has awarded a contract for an eighth and ninth vessel in the class. (PT Daya Radar Utama)

Indonesia's Ministry of Defence has awarded an IDR360 billion (USD25.5 million) contract to supply the country's navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) with two more landing ship tanks (LSTs).

The contract was awarded to local shipbuilder Batam-based PT Bandar Abadi on 12 April. The vessels will be the eight and ninth in the Teluk Bintuni class overall and will be in service primarily as amphibious transports for the TNI's armoured vehicles.

The LSTs will largely inherit its main features from earlier vessels that are under construction at PT Dok & Perkapalan Kodja Baharai and PT Daya Radar Utama, although there will be slight variances to accommodate requests from the customer, said a PT Bandar Abadi official who spoke to Jane's on 15 April. These variances have yet to be finalised, he added.

The LST type has an overall length of 120 m, beam of 18 m, and a hull draught of 3 m. Powered by two 8,810-hp diesel engines, the vessel has a top speed of 16 kt and a standard range of 7,200 n miles (16,300 km) at 12 kt.

The LST can be equipped with up to two 40 mm naval gun systems on its foredeck and 12.7 mm machine guns at various locations throughout the vessel. It can carry and launch up to 15 BMP-3F infantry fighting vehicles via a roll-on/roll-off ramp at its bow, and deploy 10-tonne helicopter from its flight deck. The BMP-3Fs are currently operated by the Indonesian Marine Corps.

IMDEX 2019: Terma to supply Indonesias KCR-60M class with C-Series Combat Suite

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

14 May 2019

Key Points

- Indonesia has awarded Terma a contract to supply the C-Series Combat Suite for the KCR-60M fast attack craft
- Procurement marks a further evolution of combat systems found on the vessel type

Terma has received a contract to supply the Indonesian Navy's (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) KCR-60M fast attack craft with the C-Series Combat Suite.

Each vessel in the class will be equipped with Terma's C-Flex combat management system (CMS), the SCANTER 4603 X-band radar, the C-Guard decoy launching system, and the C-Fire electro-optical fire control system.

In addition to the three vessels already in fleet, and another awaiting commissioning, the system will also be installed on a further two KCR-60M vessels that will be delivered to the TNI-AL in the next few years. One of these is currently under construction at PT PAL's premises in Surabaya.

The contract represents Terma's first-ever sale of a complete combat system to Indonesia, a Terma representative told Jane's at the IMDEX 2019 defence and maritime exhibition in Singapore. The company is due to hold further meetings with a team of senior leaders at the event, with a view to expanding the collaboration further on other ship classes, the representative added.

The company has also downplayed concerns of compatibility with Chinese systems that have gone onboard lead vessel KRI Sampari (628), and second-of-class KRI Tombak (629), adding that the C-Series Combat Suite is agnostic towards weapons and sensors from other manufacturers.

Both vessels have undergone several modifications in recent years, and each have been equipped with a Chinese-made Type 630 close-in weapon system (CIWS) turret in the aft section. The weapon has been installed on a pedestal at the stern where a rigid-hull inflatable boat (RHIB) was previously positioned.

IMDEX 2019: Indonesia to reinstate missile capabilities on KCR-60M fast attack craft

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

17 May 2019

Key Points

- Indonesia plans to reinstate missile capabilities on two of its KCR-60M vessels in the long term
- First- and second-of-class were earlier stripped of their missile launchers after receiving Chinese-made CIWS turrets

Slightly more than a year after removing missile launchers from two of its KCR-60M fast attack craft (FAC), the Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) is now working to reinstate the capability on these vessels.

The matter has been confirmed with Jane's by a senior crew member of KRI Tombak (629), which was berthed at RSS Singapura - Changi Naval Base for the 2019 IMDEX exhibition, which was held in Singapore from 14 to 16 May. Tombak is one of the two KCR-60M vessels taking part in the event, with the other being KRI Halasan (630).

Beginning in late 2017, Indonesia's state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL removed diagonally mounted missile launchers on Tombak and first-of-class KRI Sampari (628) as part of efforts to reconstitute the class.

The vessels were subsequently installed with the Chinese-made Type 630 close-in weapon system (CIWS) turret on a pedestal at the stern position where a rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) used to be positioned.

Type 630 CIWS set-up on Sampari and Tombak includes the Type 347G 'Rice Bowl' short-range fire-control radar and its associated fire-control console, and the SR47B air-and-surface search and gun-target indication radar, which has been integrated with an identification friend-or-foe system.

In response to requests for clarification from Jane's , a PT PAL official who first informed Jane's of the reconstitution confirmed that Tombak has now been refitted with its original missile launchers, but at a slightly different position in the aft section. He explained that this weapon has yet to undergo evaluations in its new position, or to be integrated into the vessel's wider combat systems.

Key Points

- The Indonesian Navy is salvaging a 57 mm naval gun from a soon-to-be-retired training ship
- The weapon will be installed at a naval gunfire range under development in East Java

The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) has submitted plans to retire a Yugoslavian-built training ship, and salvage its 57 mm Bofors naval gun, to the country's defence ministry for approval.

The service intends to install the naval gun at a land-based naval gunfire range that will be built in Paiton, East Java, two separate sources close to the matter have confirmed with Jane's .

The ship in question is KRI Ki Hajar Dewantara (364), which was commissioned by the service in October 1981. The vessel has been non-operational since 2017. Given that it will be decommissioned without residual value, a formal approval from the defence ministry is required before the retirement processes can commence. This is in line with Indonesian government regulations, a TNI-AL source told Jane's .



Ki Hajar Dewantara has an overall length of 96.7 m, an overall beam of 11.2 m, a hull draught of 4.8 m, and displaces 2,000 tonnes at full load. While in training service, the ship had a crew complement of 190, including 11 officers and 14 instructors, and could accommodate up to 100 cadets for training missions.

Besides a 57 mm naval gun in the primary position, the vessel is also two Rheinmetall 20 mm cannons, two 533 mm torpedo tubes, and two launchers amidships that can deploy the Aerospatiale Exocet MM38 anti-ship missile.

Once decommissioned, Ki Hajar Dewantara will be donated to the City of Surabaya. Jane's has not received confirmation of what the local government intends to do with the vessel, but local media reports suggest that it will be converted into a floating tourist attraction, incorporating a maritime museum and a restaurant.

Key Points

- The Indonesian Navy has conducted its first firing of the Exocet MM40 Block 3 missile from a Diponegoro-class corvette
- The firing validates its latest anti-surface capabilities, including the ability to strike targets that are close to the coastline

In a demonstration of its latest anti-surface capabilities, the Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) has conducted its first firing of an Exocet MM40 Block 3 missile from a Diponegoro (SIGMA)-class corvette.

The firing, which was conducted from third-of-class KRI Sultan Iskandar Muda (367), took place in the Java Sea on 7 September. It was conducted as part of a joint Indonesian Armed Forces (TNI) training activity known as Exercise Yudha Dharma 2019.

The service has conducted firings with Block 2 variants of the Exocet MM40 missile from its Diponegoro class in the past, but this is the first time that a Block 3 variant of the weapon is being deployed from the corvette. The latest firing has been carried out to test the TNI-ALs latest sea control capabilities, the service stated on the same day. It added, The Exocet MM40 Block 3 guided missile is a strategic weapon for the TNI-AL for it has the ability to attack ships at sea, and also targets that are close to the coastline.

The target used in the firing was a 63 m coastal tanker that was previously in service as KRI Sambu (902). The tanker, which was decommissioned in August 2019, was located about 40 n miles (74 km) from Sultan Iskandar Muda at the time of firing.

The MM40 Block 3 is the latest installation of the Exocet line from MBDA. The variant features several improvements over previous generations of the weapon, including air-breathing propulsion, and the adoption of a Microturbo TR-40/263 turbojet engine.

DAMEN Shiyards have completed installation of combat systems on Indonesian SIGMA 10514 guided missile frigate

Posted On Sunday, 08 December 2019 13:18

Damen Shipyards Group and its partner PT PAL have completed the installation of combat systems to the first of the Indonesian Ministry of Defences series of SIGMA 10514 Perusak Kawal Rudal (PKR) guided-missile frigates, the KRI Raden Eddy Martadinata. The combat systems installation projects successful conclusion was marked by a small handover ceremony on the 4th of December at Surabaya.

The PKR frigates are constructed via a collaborative modular process operating simultaneously at Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) in the Netherlands and PT PAL shipyard in Indonesia. With this method, Damen is able to construct high-quality vessels anywhere in the world. This also enables Damen to fulfil its contractual commitment to the Indonesian Ministry of Defence to deliver an extensive knowledge and technology transfer program.

This combat installation and testing phase of PKR construction forms part of this transfer program, with Damen providing training for the vessels crew in the operation and maintenance of all systems installed. This has proven to be a success, says Colonel Dwi Cahyo Kuncoro, DANSATGAS (head of the Indonesian Ministry of Defences SATGAS team supervising the project): There has been a very smooth cooperation with Damen and the PT Pal shipyard, both with the construction of the ship and during the installation and testing of combat systems.

The combat system sea acceptance trials were carried out over a three-week period. During this trial, the electronic warfare suite was tested by Thales. This consists of two main systems, an electronic support measure (passive radar receiver), which enables the vessel to record and interpret the various radar signals it receives from the operational environment and an electronic countermeasure system mostly referred to as jammer. These two systems work together with the combat management system the centre point in the entire web, in order to perform electronic warfare operations.

This was followed by structural firing tests and the alignment of the ships sensors and the ships guns, done with the support of Rheinmetall to make sure the sensors and weapons are looking in the same direction. Exocet surface to surface missile launching system was tested by MBDA France.

The testing of the anti-air warfare (AAW) and anti-surface warfare (ASuW) functional changes, were the last tests in the schedule. This comprises detecting and tracking surface and air targets, measuring the pointing accuracy of the guns at various heights and distances and to evaluate engagements of air and surface targets with various weapon systems. It also included the trials of the degaussing system, used to control the ships magnetic signature.

Jeffrey Vader, Project Director DSNS said, The results of the combat systems installation and testing have been hugely successful. As with the construction of the vessel, we have completed this phase both on time and on budget. We are now looking forward to getting underway with the installation and testing of the combat systems on the second vessel.

The second vessel is scheduled to undergo the same installations and testing up to February 2020, and is expected to be completed at the end of April.

Dutch shipbuilder Damen confirmed that they have asked the Indonesian Ministry of Defence (MOD) to consider their naval vessels as it continues the upgrading of the Indonesian Navy (TNI-AL) from 2020 to 2024, and increased spending for defense for 2020.

Among those being offered to the MOD are for the construction of two more Martadinata-class light frigates, which are based on Damens SIGMA 10514 design, as well as the selection of Damens OMEGA destroyer design.

Damen was successful in delivering the first two Martadinata-class frigates to the TNI-AL under the Perusak Kawal Rudal (PKR) project, in cooperation with state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL, as well as several other Indonesian companies including PT Len Industri, PT Dharma Satya Nusantara, and PT Krakatau Steel.

The TNI-AL is aiming to acquire additional frigates as it plans to retire its ageing fleet of Ahmad Yani-class frigates, which were formerly the Van Speijk-class frigates of the Royal Netherlands Navy that were built in the 1960s.

The TNI-AL is also looking at other destroyer designs at it expands its fleet, with a derivative of the Royal Danish Navys Iver Huitfeldt-class large frigates offered by Denmarks Odense Maritime Technology said to be leading the selection.

Damen Shipyards Group and its partner PT PAL recently completed installation and testing of combat systems to the second of the Indonesian Ministry of Defences SIGMA 10514 Perusak Kawal Rudal (PKR) guided missile frigates, the KRI Gusti Ngurah Rai (332).

The PKR frigates are constructed via a modular process operating simultaneously at Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) in the Netherlands and the PT PAL shipyard in Indonesia. In this manner, Damen is able to build high quality vessels anywhere in the world. This method also enables Damen to fulfil its commitment to the Indonesian Ministry of Defence to deliver an extensive knowledge and transfer of technology (ToT) programme.

A significant part of this transfer programme is the installation of combat systems along with provision of training to the crew in their usage and maintenance.

Hein van Ameijden, managing director of DSNS, said, From the outset of this project DSNS and our partner Thales Netherlands have been fully committed to the development of the Indonesian defence industry and its supporting sectors. This commitment is demonstrated with a series of ToT and local content programmes starting in 2013 when project execution commenced.

For example, DSNS has trained and educated more than 328 yard personnel, including welders, planners and engineers, during the project. Thales Netherlands has contributed by subcontracting local industry for software development, providing support, ultimately, for Indonesia to develop an indigenous combat management system.

The combat systems installed and tested include the following:

--VL MICA for defence from airborne threats
--Exocet for defence from offensive targets at greater distance
--Torpedo system for protection against submarine threat
--35mm rapid-fire cannon to respond to threats from both air and sea
--Electronic detection system to divert enemy attacks with electromagnetic redirection
--Modification of the computer operated operational system in order to operate the above

The final phase prior to handover was successfully completed on February 21st with sea-going trials the sea acceptance test (SAT). The purpose of this was to demonstrate that installations throughout the entire chain of weapons systems meet desired efficiency and accuracy.

All our prior efforts paid off. Already at the start of the tests it was clear that installation had been carried out with great precision during construction and that preparatory alignment activities and agreements had been carefully followed. The second PKR vessel achieved similar results to the first one. This demonstrates that the complete concept implemented in the SIGMA PKR Class can be considered reliable and robust, concluded Mr Van Ameijden.

Damen Shipyards Group operates 36 shipbuilding and repair yards, employing 12,000 people worldwide. Damen has delivered more than 6,500 vessels in more than 100 countries and delivers around 175 vessels annually to customers worldwide. Based on its unique, standardised ship-design concept Damen is able to guarantee consistent quality.
