CLIFTON, N.J., 15 Dec. 2010. The ITT Corp. Defense & Information Solutions Segment will provide electronic warfare systems for Norwegian Ula-class diesel-electric submarines under terms of a contract from the Norwegian Defense Logistics Organization in Lillehammer, Norway.

The ITT Radar Reconnaissance and Acoustic Systems business unit in Clifton, N.J., will provide Norway with six tactical radar electronic support measures (ESM) and radar surveillance systems for its Ula Class submarines. ESM systems help submarines detect, intercept, locate, or analyze enemy radio and radar signals to determine if the sources of those signals might be threats.

The solution from ITT (NYSE: ITT) is based on the company's ES-3701 precision ESM system, which is in use by navies around the world. The system is suited for ship, submarine, and coastal surveillance, as well as for land-based applications. The equipment also has advanced capabilities for long-range radar signal acquisition, classification, and intelligence, ITT officials say.
