Hensoldt Nexeya France will supply its Lyncea combat management system (CMS) and associated sensors and effectors as part of the modernisation of the Slovenian Navy's Svetlyak (Project 10412)-class multi-purpose large patrol boat Triglav (11), the company announced on 4 June.

Under a contract awarded to Hensoldt and its local partner Panna Plus for the upgrade programme, Hensoldt said it will equip the vessel with the latest version of its Lyncea CMS, which features a new human machine interface (HMI) that makes it more intuitive and ergonomic for operators.

The scope of supply also includes an L22 tactical datalink to increase interoperability with NATO forces, and the installation and integration of several new sensors and effectors from the international Hensoldt Group, including Hensoldt UK's Kelvin Hughes Mk11 SharpEye surface search radar, an identification, friend or foe (IFF) LTR 400 lightweight transponder, and a GMJ9 jammer system.

Under separate contracts announced in February 2024 by the Slovenian Ministry of Defence (MoD) for Triglav's modernisation programme, Turkish shipyard Desan is responsible for the repair and upgrade of the vessel's existing systems, including the fire extinguishing system, the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), platform management system, video surveillance system, and vessel openings control system.

Croatian shipyard Iskra, meanwhile, has been contracted to carry out the ship's rearmament, which will include installation of a new 30 mm naval cannon on the ship.

Upgrade work on Triglav began in April 2024 and is scheduled to last 24 months, with a view to the ship returning to service in 2026.
