          threat. These threats could include terrorism,
          military action, smuggling, non-conventional
          weapons and the impact of religious or poli-
          tical conflicts. The concept embraces a num-
          ber of threat scenarios and possible respon-

          vehicles and surface vessels, e.g. for patrol
          duties, minesweeping, minehunting.

Full systems integration – standard or customised
On a submarine, a whole range of systems must be integrated
to ensure optimal function. Kockums is highly experienced in                       Humans                                              Signatures
this type of integration, whether it involves existing standard
systems, customer-specific solutions or a combination of the
two. Our goal is to create a submarine that can play a natural
and active role in a broader context, at both the national and
international level. In other words, a submarine that is fully in-
tegrated with other units at sea, on land, in the air and in space.

                    Unique potential
                    Kockums submarine safety systems are the most
                    advanced available. They involve a fundamental com-
                    mitment to safety considerations right from the design
                    stage. Kockums submarines are designed to facilitate
                    the rapid and safe connection of all types of rescue
                    vehicle, while also featuring multiple onboard safety
                    systems. These include rescue chambers, inflatable
                    rescue suits, deck-accessible emergency life buoys,
                    individual “last man aboard” rescue capability, control
                    of oxygen, carbon dioxide and pressure levels, emer-
                    gency blowing of ballast-tanks for rapid return to the
                    surface etc.

                    Redundant systems
                    Kockums submarines feature two watertight bulk-
                    heads, offering unique safety benefits. If something
                    goes wrong in one part of the submarine, the crew can
                    retreat to the other section. The important and neces-
                    sary systems are independently functional in each
14                  section.
