The Surface Warfare Domain focuses on that insight that will allow the SA Navy to fully exploit the systematic potential of its surface warfare systems.

Due recognition is given to the multi-dimensional complexity of Maritime Warfare where surface assets may face threats from below water, from the surface and from the air.

The unique nature of modern surface warfare, the assosiated platforms and the wide range of component technologies that need to be integrated also constitute important aspects of the relevant set of expertise.

Current activity is primarily aimed at assisting the SA Navy in the development of counter-measures and tactics against air and underwater threats for the MEKO Class of corvettes.

Some work is also being done on establishing the SA Navy requirement for strategic and tactical Electronic Warfare expertise and defining the support that IMT should render in this regard.
