Naval Group and MacTaggart Scott Australia are proud to have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) during the Pacific Maritime Exposition 2019.

MacTaggart Scott, a first-class industry player in Australia, has been pre-selected by Naval Group Pacific to maximise Australian Industry Capability and to enlarge the Naval Group's Defence Technological and Industrial Base (DTIB) in the country.

The cooperation between Naval Group Pacific and MacTaggart Scott is aimed at entrusting MTSA with the fabrication of equipment composing countermeasures and/or its associated launching system. It is one of nine MoU related to countermeasures signed by Naval Group Pacific in Australia.

Naval Group Pacific is proposing a breakthrough in anti-torpedo countermeasures for Australian submarines and surface ships programs (SEA 1000 Australian Future Submarine, SEA 5000 Hunter-Class Frigates and SEA 4000, upgrade of Hobart-class Air Warfare Destroyer) with CANTO(R), the latest countermeasure generation based on Dilution/Confusion multi-effects.

This anti-torpedo system, fitted with its associated reaction module, CONTRALTO(R) is already in service in the French Navy and in several blue-water navies.
