Indra to equip South Korean Navy’s KSS III submarine with Pegaso system

Global technology company Indra has been awarded a contract to equip its Pegaso electronic defence system aboard the South Korean Navy’s first KSS III Batch II submarine.

The contract has been signed with Korean Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard.

The defence system offers a probability of signals interception in working band close to 100% and monitors the electromagnetic (EM) signals emitted in its environment to collect signal intelligence.

It integrates both sensors into a single antenna to enhance efficiency, optimise space, and reduce the submarine’s radar section. The features in the system make detection more difficult for the enemy.

Indra’s system also incorporates True Wideband Digital Reception. This feature promptly covers a broad spectrum of the radar and communications bands.

The advanced Pegaso system will strengthen the Korean Navy’s situational awareness, surveillance, reconnaissance, and deterrence capabilities on missions.
