Cylindrical Array Sonar provides a panoramic view of the sur-rounding contacts and
is usually the primary sensor of a submerged submarine.
* excellent target detection performance
* excellent target discrimination, exceptionally well maintained during target
*high sophisticated automatic target detection and tracking
* online and offline analysis for noise, pulses, and transients
* interactive acoustical contact classification
Active Operating Sonar
Active operating sonar provides omni directional and sector transmissions with high
source level (adjustable).
Variable pulse types and waveforms can be applied for active transmission, depending
on the actual focus of the operation.
Intercept Detection and Ranging Sonar
With this sonar sensor, in addition to the target bearing, the target range can be
estimated in the high and very high frequency band.
This gives a first indication in real-time of the target threat potential to the
Track data for intercept pulses is automatically associated to existing tracks from
the tactical sonar sensors.
Rebounds cylindrical sensor
With intercept passive sonar any hydroacoustic pulse from sources like helicopters
with dipping sonars, pinging frigates, homing torpedoes etc. can be detected and
rebound over the complete frequency band.
The cylindrical sensor has a diameter of 2.4 meters and is placed on top of the tower,
which means that the submarine remains undetected under all circumstances.
Forward Looking Active Sonar
The forward looking active sonar is a multi purpose sonar and provides the following
* mine and obstacle avoidance
* forward looking
* bottom mapping
* bottom navigation
* surfacing protection
Doppler Log Unit
* speed over ground sensor and
Flank Array Sonar
Flank array sonar is a hull mounted sensor with optimum acous-tical decoupling from
the platform providing excellent contact classification capabilities.
It is available as FAS as a line array or EFAS as a vertically ex-tended array with
an increased frequency range and improved detection performance. Both variants require
the same instal-lation foundation. Both arrays support target ranging capabil-ity.
Optimum addition is the own noise analysis sonar ONA for monitoring own ship radiation.
