DAMEN introduced the new "Compact SIGMA" line of corvettes during DSEI 2013
 
DAMEN Schelde Naval Shipbuilding introduced the new "Compact SIGMA" line during DSEI 2013, the International Defence & Security event in London, United Kingdom. Undoubtedly, one of the major advantages of the Compact SIGMA (Ship Integrated Geometrical Modularity Approach) Series is that all of the good things from a large ship have been recreated in a smaller version, with ship sizes ranging from 600 tonnes to 1500 tonnes displacement and a length over all from 59 m to 87 m.

This smaller size ship can have the same combat systems and capabilities, but with a shorter range and a mission endurance of up to two weeks. Smart design and engineering lead to even higher reliability and availability.

The SIGMA modularity allows potentional customers to select the vessel size, sensor suite and weapons fit that perfectly match their needs,
     
The vLBV® is a revolutionary 1-2 person portable MiniROV system and the world’s first truly vectored MiniROV offering compact size with big ROV performance.
A modular SIGMA corvette model was on display on DAMEN's stand at DSEI 2013.
In this configuration it shows an Integrated Mast Module, 8x anti-ship missiles, a 76mm main gun, a special mission container at the stern and two RAM launchers.

Advantages of the Compact SIGMA:
» Flexibility from standard commercial up to full implementation of naval platform features, depending on functionality
» High speed, swift manoeuvring
» Smaller size platform, 25% to 30% less power needed and less operational, maintenance and ILS costs
» Lower acquisition cost
» Reduced manning
» Ease of maintenance and docking
» Less complexity compared to large ship
» Ease of handling in confined waters and in ports
» High availability by smart engineering of platform propulsion and auxiliary systems
» Platform systems and components designed for quality working and cost-effectiveness and choice of selection
