Arrow Naval Group to supply anti-torpedo defense system to Philippines

Naval Group to supply anti-torpedo defense system to Philippines
By: Navy Recognition & Naval News - Oct 22 - Navy Forces Maritime Defense Industry

According to a PR published by Naval Group on October 24, 2022, the representatives of the Department of National Defence for the Philippine Navy and Naval Group have conducted the Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) of CONTRALTOŽ reaction module in France.

This milestone enables the installation of CONTRALTOŽ into the C-Guard decoy launching system of the two frigates.

On 1st December 2021, Naval Group was notified of its first contract in the Philippines by the Department of National Defence for the Philippine Navy. Naval Group will provide anti-torpedo defence system based on CANTOŽ/CONTRALTOŽ countermeasures solution to equip the two Jose Rizal-class frigates.

CANTOŽ is the latest countermeasure generation in the defence industry. This breakthrough in the field of anti-torpedo defence applies a unique concept to defend the frigate.

It is based on the dilution/confusion concept to defend high-value and mission-essential units by generating a high-level acoustic signal over 360-degree, covering the full frequency range of the attacking torpedo.

This anti-torpedo system is fitted with its associated reaction module ContraltoŽ, which computes the most appropriate evasive manoeuvre and deployment sequence once a threat is detected.

CANTOŽ and CONTRALTOŽ are worldwide references already in service in the French Navy and in many foreign navies.

Naval Group has announced the opening of its office in Manilla in late 2020. The company’s extensive portfolio opens many opportunities to address the entire range of Philippine naval needs from development of the naval forces to the constitution of a world-class submarine force.
Personal note: Seems all Nation's of late are updating with more state-of- art
defensive weapons. Mainly those with coastal operations. I wish I had more
data on these little critter's but that may be confidential at this time. I wonder
what triggers their operations - such as its working once it enters the water
it's seeking processes and when to detonate on contact or within a certain
range of their target? Must be new but first I've heard of it other then
our standard torpedo ops. Accuracy is also a factor how close and what
type of punch does it have once it ignites or goes off? How close does
it have to be to their target? Hmm - must have a homer to find it.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
