Turkish company Roketsan joins IDAS common submarine missile project
 
The Turkish company Roketsan and the German IDAS Consortium formed by ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems and Diehl BGT Defence signed a cooperation agreement to develop and supply the submarine-launched IDAS (= Interactive Defence and Attack System for Submarines) missile. The accord was inked at the IDEF Trade Show in Istanbul on May 9, 2013. The signature ceremony took place in the presence of Thomas Kossendey, member of the German Parliament and parliamentarian secretary to the federal minister of defence and the German Armament Director Detlef Selhausen.

IDAS provides new self-defence and asymmetric warfare capabilities for submerged submarines to engage
threats from the air, naval vessels as well as coastal targets. The submarine can launch the multi-role missile
from a torpedo tube under water by means of a launching container. Aided by an innovative fibre-optic data link,
the operator in the submarine is capable of controlling the missile during the entire flight offering the opportunity
of target change, correction of the target impact point or mission abort. The system can be refitted also into
existing submarines with minor effort.

Currently the IDAS Consortium is conducting an Initial Development Program (IDP) with the objective of developing a verified product. Verification will be proven with successful firings from a submerged submarine scheduled end of 2014. According to the cooperation agreement, Roketsan will be responsible for development, qualification and series production of the IDAS warhead, support testing of CAS (Control Actuation System), participate in system level design activities and perform a work share in the series production of the CAS. A further partner is the Norwegian company Nammo, who is developing and producing the rocket motor.

The principle of IDAS was proven by successful controlled test firings from an underwater test facility in Northern Germany as well as from a HDW Class 212A submarine of the German Navy in the Baltic Sea. The project was awarded the Technology Prize of the German defence industry.
