Mine warfare likely to be on NATO menu

Mine countermeasure (MCM) capabilities will likely be high up on NATO’s agenda for the upcoming summit in Brussels, Belgium, in July this year.

A number of alliance members are working on determining their next step in MCM platforms, which is expected to see a significant emphasis on unmanned systems providing much of the enduring scanning and surveillance.

Another factor in the perceived benefits of unmanned systems in naval MCM is bringing about a reduction in overall costs with the cessation of replacement for expensive mine clearance vessels.

The Royal Netherlands Navy’s first upgraded Goalkeeper close-in weapon system recently passed its sea acceptance trials aboard landing platform dock HNLMS Johan de Witt, Thales – the company in charge of the system modernization – announced.

The test came six years after the company was contracted for upkeep modifications in 2012.

Goalkeeper proved its mettle against air targets which included detection, tracking and elimination of Kinetiq’s Banshee propeller and jet drones with traditional and modern inbound attack flight paths. For surface targets, the same procedure was carried out with Kinetiq Sprite II drones.

German Navy’s future 212CD submarines to be maintained in Norway

A common maintenance model between Germany and Norway will see German Navy submarines maintained at a support hub in Norway.

The submarines, designed from the outset to be AIP variants, will be built by Germany’s ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems.

Wereldwijd voor een veilig Nederland – Geïntegreerde Buitenland- en Veiligheidsstrategie 2018-2022

Wat in het buitenland gebeurt, raakt rechtstreeks aan de veiligheid van Nederland. Wereldwijde inzet is daarom nodig, in het Nederlands belang. ‘Veiligheid is de ruggengraat van het Nederlandse buitenlandbeleid’, stelt minister Blok van Buitenlandse Zaken. Vandaag presenteert het kabinet de Geïntegreerde Buitenland- en Veiligheidsstrategie (GBVS).

De internationale veiligheidssituatie is de afgelopen jaren sterk veranderd, en op punten zelfs verslechterd. MH17 werd neergehaald boven Oekraïne waardoor talloze Nederlanders het leven lieten. ISIS veroverde delen van Syrië en Irak en voerde een schrikbewind dat vluchtelingenstromen naar Europa op gang bracht waar terroristen van profiteerden. Op veel plekken kampen we met terroristische aanslagen en terreurdreigingen. En de wereldwijde machtsverhoudingen verschuiven in een hoog tempo.
