The Institute for Maritime Technology, a division of Armscor Defence Institutes (Pty) Ltd has been awarded a R473 747.67 extension of an existing R3 million contract for support services related to the South African Navy’s “submarine underwater torpedo” system.

The AEG SUT 264 heavyweight torpedo is the main weapon of the Manthatisi-class diesel-electric submarine fleet of the SA Navy. The 533mm (21 inch) diameter German submarine torpedo was deployed in the SAN from 2006. The wire-guided weapon features active/passive onboard terminal guidance and has a range of 28km at 23 knots or 12km at 35 knots. The torpedo carries a 250kg RDX warhead initiated by magnetic field or contact.

The award takes the known value of work related to submarine torpedoes to some R10 368 651.11.
