Thales press release
Thales and OMT will work on designing a common solution for the Naval domain, the first could be deployed for the future Danish Navy. This collaboration will allow both partners to define the best trade-off when it comes to modularity and performances at sea.
CUBEDIN A/S, a joint venture between Odense Maritime Technology (OMT) and Systematic, has developed the CUBEDIN concept that enables interchangeable, adaptable ships to be easily reconfigured to suit any mission. CUBEDIN combines a physical interface with a software solution that allows navies to set up ship platforms using Cubes – or modules from SH Defence. The CUBEDIN software also provides a communication gateway between modules, such as sensors, and the vessel’s internal systems.
Thales will work with OMT to develop a new approach in the designing of modular Combat platforms, providing its Anti-Submarine Warfare and Mine Warfare technologies to these new vessels.
Its aim is to create a modular flexible platform integrating Thales’ sensors and systems into the CUBEDIN concept. CUBEDIN is a standardised interface communications system, which connects all parts of the ship’s systems, sonars and sensors to build the strongest defence.
This cooperation between Thales and CUBEDIN A/S demonstrates Thales’ ambition and commitment to partner with local companies to the benefit of both the local and international defense industry and customers.
“Thales is globally renowned for its expertise in naval sensors and systems. This partnership with CUBEDIN allows us to jointly develop the next generation of mission solutions, making us an even stronger player in the naval field and paving the way for future collaborations within the naval industry. Thales is committed to work together with local industries to maximize the benefits for our customers. This collaboration with worldwide player OMT will create new and exciting opportunities for both companies in Denmark and abroad.”
Tommy Ayouty, CEO Thales Denmark
”OMT and Systematic are proud to introduce CUBEDIN A/S and to partner with Thales in setting the standard for a future common solution for the naval domain. Together we will be able to take the lead on naval design, not only in Denmark but also in markets worldwide. Thales and OMT have worked together on several successful naval programmes in the past, so this is a fantastic opportunity to revisit that partnership in the new joint venture CUBEDIN A/S. Adaptability has always been a key driver in these projects and, as technology continues to advance, it is therefore natural to extend the ambition and strive for interchangeability within ship design.”
