Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL) recently provided a glimpse of its ongoing Indigenous Midget Submarine program during a visit by a delegation from the 63rd NDC Naval Course to the MDL facility. This development comes on the heels of a significant milestone earlier this year when MDL successfully pressure-tested the prototype hull of the Midget Submarine as part of a proof-of-concept.
The upcoming MS-X02A Midget Submarine represents a cutting-edge stealth-based platform with minimal acoustic and electromagnetic signatures, emphasizing operational secrecy and efficiency. Equipped with state-of-the-art SONAR, GPS, Inertial Navigation System, and Communication systems, the MS-X02A showcases India’s leading position in submarine technology.
Midget Submarines like the MS-X02A are purposefully designed to transport a pilot, co-pilot, and a combat swimmer team, along with their essential equipment, for maritime missions both on land and at sea. The close integration of the pilot and co-pilot within the swimmer team ensures seamless coordination and execution of underwater operations.
MDL’s progress in the Indigenous Midget Submarine program signifies a significant step forward in India’s naval capabilities, enhancing its ability to conduct a wide range of underwater missions effectively and securely.
