MUM's the Word: New UUV Takes Shape in Germany

;Today’s AUVs are usually limited with regard to energy, payload capacity and autonomy,” said Hendrik Wehner, Design Engineer, thyssenkrupp Marine Systems. “For a sole autonomous movement of the ships, smart software solutions are needed. Our partners from University of Rostock and ATLAS ELEKTRONIK are setting the pace there. Large autonomous underwater platforms that can be configured around a payload do not yet exist. MUM will be engineered in such a manner that future payload modules can be designed by anyone. We see a great potential to reduce costs in the industrial and scientific

Airbus May Sell Stake in Submarine Supplier

Airbus is considering a sale of its 49 percent stake in submarine supplier Atlas Elektronik as part of a reshuffle of its military business, German newspaper Die Welt reported on its website on Friday, citing industry sources. Aerospace and defence group Airbus - then called EADS - and German industrial group ThyssenKrupp jointly bought Atlas Elektronik from BAE Systems in 2005, beating out France's Thales. Die Welt said Airbus was to make a decision on a sale of its stake in the coming months. ThyssenKrupp likely has a right of first refusal, it said. Airbus declined to comment and ThyssenKrup

Atlas Elektronik to Launch Lithium Iron Phosphate

ATLAS ELEKTRONIK Group and Advanced Lithium Systems Europe (ALSE) will soon launch their new Lithium Iron Phosphate rechargeable exercise battery for electrical torpedoes on the market.   The advanced features of this new battery include a longer battery life, enhanced safety, easier handling and more flexible use as well as markedly lower life cycle cost. With cells de-signed to replace the legacy design currently in use the new battery can be used with all ATLAS electrical torpedoes and be adapted for use with any other electrically propelled heavyweight torpedo. To maintain proficiency
