EADS has been chosen by the "Workgroup for the F125 Frigate" to supply the
command & control and weapons deployment system (Führungs- und
Waffeneinsatzsystem - FüWES) for the next generation of the German Navy surface
ship. The "Workgroup for the F125 Frigate" is made up of the shipyards
ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems and Friedrich Lürssen Werft. The contract with EADS
is for the development and delivery of the complete software, hardware and
infrastructure as well as the performance verification for all four ships.
The command & control and weapons deployment system (FüWES) is based on the
cutting-edge technology used for the Advanced Naval Combat System (ANCS) which
is already being successfully used on the "Fast Attac" craft of the "Hamina"
class in Finland. In addition, the EADS software components already successfully
deployed on the F124 frigates and the K130 corvettes will be extensively used
for the system solution of the F125.
The F125 frigate is the primary ship class of the German Navy, which is being
procured specifically for joint assignments in a multinational environment of
network-centric operations management. This new ship class can counteract
asymmetric threat scenarios and therefore guarantee the highest possible degree
of safety for the ship and its crew. With the selection of the command & control
and weapons deployment system (FüWES), with its consistently open and modular
structure making it extremely flexible, decisive steps have been taken regarding
the course that the German Navy is taking.
