ECA Group to modernize Scorpene Steering Consoles for Chilean Navy

Wednesday, July 10 2019
ECA Group was awarded by the Chilean Navy to upgrade the Steering Consoles of Scorpène-class submarines within the framework of the maintenance program of the Navy's submarines. 

Within the framework of the maintenance program of the Chilean Scorpène-class submarines, ECA Group was requested by the Navy of Chile to take care of the modernization of the Steering Consoles.

This program includes several phases:

  • Modernization of the Supervision Units
  • Replacement of Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI) : screens, trackballs, control handle,…
  • Modernization of the OPSYS Calculators, which is an open hardware & software control and monitoring system

This project allows ECA Group to strengthen its long-time collaboration with Chilean Navy on its fleet of Scorpenes submarines (in particular since the replacement of the static converters) while assuring to ECA Group a favored partner's position for future projects, such as the modernization of the static converters of their U209-class submarines.
