Qinetiq Maritime to support Korean submarine programme

Qinetiq Maritime has secured a contract from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) to support the development of the Republic of Korea submarine programme.

Qinetiq will be conducting submarine free-running model tests, which will include building the submarine model and testing it in its Ocean Basin in Gosport, UK. QinetiQ will also be running deep water tests at a separate location.

DSME was selected to build two 3,000 ton class conventional submarines by the Korean Defense Acquisition Program Administration. The project, dubbed Jangbogo-III, will have Korean shipyards build these next-generation submarines for the Korean Navy.
