November 03, 2012: The Indian Navy is looking to acquire a torpedo simulator for the Atlas Elektronik SUT 266 currently deployed on its HDW Class 209/Shishumar-class attack submarines. According to the Navy's request for information from Indian and global vendors, "The units including interfaces must conform in function to enable series inspection of torpedo tubes onboard Submarines with Fire Control System CCS-90-1/ISUS-90 (SFCS). A detailed response is essential so as to analyze the proposed solution of the vendor with regards to technical capabilities and features of the torpedo simulator. The torpedo SUT 266 and fire control system CCS-90-1/ISUS-90 SFCS installed on board submarines are manufactured by Atlas Eleckronik, Germany, hence, firm responding to the proposal should be capable of obtaining the relevant interface data independently from the OEM of SFCS and SUT 266."
