Germany’s Atlas Elektronik Group, a worldwide acting company for maritime defence electronics, founded a subsidiary in North America this past week.
Atlas North America (Atlas NA) has been set up to establish a strong and reliable partnership with the US Navy and US authorities. As potential main contractor, Atlas NA will provide Atlas products and solutions for current or future US users.
For decades, Atlas has been offering a broad range of sonars and sensors, command and control systems for submarines and surface combatants, heavyweight torpedoes and corresponding countermeasures, mine warfare systems, unmanned underwater vehicles, as well as coastal surveillance systems. To round off its broad palette, ATLAS offers comprehensive range of support services, both before and after delivery of the products.
Dieter Rottsieper and Kai Horten, Managing Directors of the Atlas Elektronik Group, stated: “We are proud to set a first footprint in the US. It’s an honour and a challenge to enter the most demanding de-fense market of the world. We are really looking forward to creating new partnerships with the US Navy, authorities and companies”.
Sergio Diehl, Head of Atlas NA: “The Atlas Elektronik Group is a renowned provider of maritime security with an impressive heritage. We can deliver leading mine warfare and countermeasure systems, torpedo and anti-torpedo torpedoes, and all of the other Atlas Elektronik Group Products in support of the U.S. Navy to make the sea a safer place”.
Atlas NA is headquartered in Virginia Beach adjacent to the U.S. Navy’s Atlantic Fleet Headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia.
