Systems engineering and sensors house SEA launched a new, enhanced version of its KraitArray thin-line passive towed array sonar at DSEI 2017 in London that the company claims offers 10 times the performance of the original system.

The enhanced version of the thin-line towed-array KraitArray sonar features longer, larger aperture arrays that can extend up to 150 m in length.

Speaking to Jane’s on 12 September, KraitArray product manager Alex Key said the second-generation version features longer, larger aperture arrays that can extend up to 150 m in length, compared to the original system’s 50 m.

In addition, whereas the original system digitises up to 32 acoustic channels and eight non-acoustic channels on a single Ethernet data interface, the enhanced version allows for at least 128 acoustic channels and features up to 32 non-acoustic sensors for monitoring array shape and orientation.
