SeaSpider® is the world’s first dedicated Anti-Torpedo-Torpedo (ATT), designed without compromise to be an effective and affordable solution to counter the threat to ships and submarines. It is the key element in the ATLAS ELEKTRONIK solution to provide both proven and deployed torpedo defence to the full functional chain “from sensor to shooter.” With unprecedented performance in both deep and shallow water SeaSpider® will provide Navies with the capability to protect their ships, submarines and sailors against torpedo attack.
Affordable Total Cost of Ownership
SeaSpider® is deliberately designed to be affordable for navies in procurement and operation. To achieve a low unit cost, uniquely for guided underwater weapons, a solid propellant rocket motor was chosen as propulsion element. This provides affordable compact high energy performance. Other design choices aim to minimize production cost. The operational concept for SeaSpider® allows for a “torpedo alarm” configuration with a very low false alarm rate which reduces expenditure. The maintenance free SeaSpider® canistered round reduces maintenance effort and simplifies handling.
