Defense Research Development Organization (DRDO) has begun Prototyping work on India’s first dedicated Anti-Torpedo-Torpedo (ATT) system that is designed to protect Naval Warships, submarines, and Coastal Boats against torpedo attack. Anti-Torpedo-Torpedo is a “Hardkill” Torpedo Defence system that will either defeat Torpedo with its explosive warhead or by physically slamming into it.
Anti-Submarine Rocket systems are only “Hardkill” options that are available on frontline warships against Torpedos but the effectiveness of such torpedo defense systems and their kill probability is not satisfactory in Modern warfare where Torpedos threat is increasingly diverse and getting harder to detect.
Anti-Torpedo-Torpedo (ATT) can provide this capability against any threat torpedo type in all relevant environments and is armed with the sonar system that makes it easier for it to “hear” the threat and lock on. DRDO-developed ATT is still at the initial stages of prototyping but it is expected that developmental trials of the system might start from 2023 onwards.
