SAM Gets South Korean Navy Contract

Tuesday, February 03, 2004
SAM Electronics of Hamburg has been awarded a major contract for supply and installation of advanced degaussing systems aboard five of the South Korean Navy’s new KDX-II frigates being built at the Daewoo and Hyundai yards. An option for equipping two further vessels is pending. Featuring either manual or automatic control in master/slave modes, the computer-controlled systems basically comprise a degaussing control unit (DCU), a power supply assembly and a magnetic probe facility for acquisition of magnetic earth fields relative to ship’s coordinates. Each is additionally characterised by a reduced number of coil cables, so allowing for significant reductions in weight and costs of cabling. Other main advantages include an enhanced capability for magnetic calibration during ranging.
