UK based SEA is participating at the ongoing show with a range of maritime mission system capabilities on display, including the firm’s new Trainable Decoy Launcher, miniaturised towed array and KraitArray Family of low profile miniaturised acoustic arrays.
The Trainable Decoy Launcher System will be available in 2020 and was launched at DSEI London in September.
The new decoy system can protect surface platforms from missile and torpedo threats and is capable of a wide range of movement, rapidly delivering complex pat- terns of mixed decoys around platforms. It offers a sophisticated threat processing engine, which can recommend and enact responses to a wide range of threats much more quickly than traditional systems, minimising the need to manoeuvre the ship, improving its effectiveness.
The gyro stabilised launcher has a wide range of movement, so that the system can offer countermeasure coverage to both sea skimming and ballistic trajectory threats. The Trainable Decoy Launcher System supports 130mm and other decoy types, including: Chaff; Flares; Active rounds; Expendable torpedo countermeasures; Rocket/mortar, and mortar launched sub munitions and Programmable rounds SEA announced recently that its innovative Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) system had successfully completed sea trials with the Portuguese Navy.
The KraitSense low-profile passive sonar system detected, tracked and classified a submarine whilst deployed from a Portuguese Navy offshore patrol vessel (OPV). When compared to traditional line and towed arrays, KraitSense offers low power consumption, drag and weight, in addition to significant cost efficiencies.
KraitSense provides a cost-effective ASW solution for navies of all sizes and features an innovative low profile miniaturised acoustic array suitable for towed and static applications on both manned and unmanned vessels.
