Thales has completed repair and upgrade of Indonesia’s Diponegoro-class corvettes by installing and integrating Kingklip hull-mounted sonar.

The upgrade follows a repair of the corvette damaged in an accident that took place during a routine sea operation in January 2015. By updating the operator console, signal processing and hardware technology, the corvette now has communicative capabilities between the user and the machine through the human machine interface (HMI), which is already installed on the Perusak Kawal Rudal (PKR) class frigate, the company said in a statement Wednesday.

In February 2018, Thales also completed a successful sea trial with the support of a former French navy sonar operator, who also shared best practices with the Indonesian navy officers.
