The SeaHake® mod4 is the dual-purpose and fibre-optic wire-guided heavy-weight torpedo that fully meets the operational requirements of modern Navies. It is specifically designed to meet the confined shallow and blue water environments of today‘s and future naval scenarios.
In our more than 130 year torpedo tradition SeaHake® mod4 is the latest member of the highly successful SeaHake® family of torpedoes that started its evolution more than 45 years ago.
The propulsion of SeaHake® mod4 features the unique modular battery system and an electric motor with very low self noise. It provides high speed and long range combined with exceptional stealth characteristics. The digital sonar system features the unrivalled conformal array and is able to master complex scenarios. It manages multiple targets while identifying and suppressing any kind of jammers and decoys.
The fully digitized signal processing hardware leads to a broad frequency range and optimal beam former algorithms. Long acquisition range and high resolution of the torpedo sonar are achieved. Multiple targets can be separated and targets can be classified. Moreover the wide angular coverage of the sonar provides the full operational picture instantaneously.
The electric propulsion system, together with skew glass-fibre reinforced plastic (GRP) propellers ensures silent operation across the whole operating envelope. This minimizes the probability of counter-detection and provides optimum sensor performance.
All performance data confirmed in numerous in-water-tests, thus the SeaHake® mod4 meets or exceeds all customer requirements. The SeaHake® mod4 is the superior Heav yweight Torpedo with undisputed performance and tested in all operational scenarios.
The ATLAS ELEKTRONIK Weapon Control Systems (WCS) enables full exploitation of torpedo SeaHake® mod4 capabilities and engagements based on Combat Management System (CMS) data without affecting the launch capabilities of existing weapons and sensors fitted on board of any Submarine.
The SeaHake® mod4 has a 21 inch (533 millimetres) standard calibre used for Heavyweight Torpedoes worldwide. It is capable of every common launching method such as swim-out, push-out, water steam or ram.
SeaHake® mod4 offers a flexible solution capable of integration to a varietey of modern platforms and Combat Management System.
