Airborne Anti-Submarine Warfare
Nowhere To Hide
24 hours a day, 365 days a year, our UYS-505 Sonobuoy Processors help acoustic sensor operators detect, localize, and classify nuclear and diesel foreign submarines all around the world.
First to introduce color grams and passive/active/multistatic energy maps, General Dynamics is the industry leader for Sonobuoy processors. Our integrated, full-spectrum suite of support tools and products enables operators to achieve extended range performance and exceptional target identification capabilities.
Our leading-edge, intuitive, reliable solutions include field-proven sonobuoy processing systems and a suite of functional software modules are available in fixed-wing, rotary-wing, shipborne or unmanned configurations.
WHY CHOOSE OUR SONOBUOY PROCESSORS?
They are best in class. Our advanced processing makes and maintains contact when other sources cannot; while our intuitive user interface offers tools that simplify the task of prosecuting increasingly large and complex sonobuoy fields. These solutions increase the tactical advantage against modern submerged threats with best-in-class range performance and acoustic intelligence exploitation.
Reduced crew size and operator workload. The UYS-505 software continues to evolve to meet operational requirements and offers automatic target detection and tracking and a suite of other tools that make operators more effective. Recent advancements with system automation further reduce initial and proficiency training costs and total number of training days required.
They offer easy integration. While capable of being operated as a standalone system, the UYS-505 is currently integrated with mission management systems on multiple rotary and fixed wing platforms around the globe and its software supports an open architecture approach to data transfer for easy integration with external aircraft systems.
Post-mission analysis and replay. We offer fixed or deployable ground stations that support Level 2 and 3 advanced acoustic intelligence analysis and data archiving. These systems provide the same operator interface as the aircraft systems for ease of use, minimal training, and support replay at more than 8 times real time.
Training opportunities. We provide on-board or ground-based acoustic operator training courses and systems that can be used to generate and run high-fidelity and complex anti-submarine warfare acoustic scenarios.
Our Sonobuoy Processing system increases the tactical advantage against modern submerged threats with best-in-class range performance and acoustic intelligence exploitation.
OTTAWA–General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada was awarded the Underwater Warfare Suite Upgrade (UWSU) contract to upgrade and maintain underwater sensors on the Halifax-class frigates for the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN).
General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada will showcase Canadian underwater acoustic solutions and technologies on offer for current and upcoming programs, including the Underwater Warfare Suite Upgrade that will upgrade and maintain underwater sensors installed on the modernized Halifax-class frigates, as well as airborne mission management capabilities developed for the Aurora maritime patrol aircraft and the Cyclone maritime helicopter program.
