Issue 99

April 13, 2020. According to the Meteksan Defence e-newsletter, an important development was shared for the first time regarding the MÜREN Underwater Combat Management System (CMS) to be used in PREVEZE Class Submarines in the inventory of the Turkish Naval Forces. In the newsletter, it was stated that the latest development was that the 1st Stage Factory Acceptance Tests were initiated on March 2nd, 2020, also with the participation of TÜBİTAK BİLGEM within the scope of the MÜREN PREVEZE Sonar Subsystem Project.

MUREN CMS which is to be used in PREVEZE Class Submarines in the inventory of the Naval Forces Command is being developed by TÜBİTAK BİLGEM (Informatics and Information Security Research Center). The “Procurement Contract of the Sonar Subsystem for the Indigenously Produced Integrated Underwater Combat Management System PREVEZE Class Application” regarding the national development and production of signal processing hardware and software for the sonar and underwater acoustic systems that form the critical component of MÜREN CMS, as well as the integration to the MÜREN CMS was signed between TÜBİTAK BİLGEM and Meteksan on July 31, 2018. With the nationally developed electronic hardware and software within the scope of the contract, together with the MÜREN CMS to be developed by TÜBİTAK BİLGEM, the objective is to eliminate foreign dependency for the sonar, underwater acoustic system and Integrated Underwater Combat Management Systems of the PREVEZE Class submarines, which are an important part of the combat underwater elements of the Turkish Naval Forces. With the efforts to be performed within the scope of the project, prompt, effective and national service support will be achieved in addition to indigenization.
