SOCILSUB – Cylindrical sonar modernization
Most cylindrical sonars currently installed into old submarines have high performance but many limitations in signal processing, integration with other system and in human machine interface, mainly due to the existing technology when the submarine was designed. This situation may be intensified by the problems of obsolescence.
The SOCILSUB design is based on the most powerful electronics today, allowing the incorporation of new and advanced signal processing algorithms to improve the sonar directivity, detection range and audio quality, keeping the same cylindrical array in the bow of the submarine in order to save money and decrease the complexity of the system installation on board.
SOCILSUB can provide contact surveillance, detection and tracking from the hydrophones of any cylindrical Wet End and can be integrated in any Combat System.
Its main features are:
- Broad Band (BB), Narrow Band (NB), NB Multi-LOFAR and BB/NB Events.
- LOFAR, Magnified Zoom and DEMON Analysis.
- BB/NB Tracking in automatic and predictive mode.
- Audio with automatic and manual tracking beams.
- BB contact signal recording and reproduction for training.
- Wet End test by audio, video and BITE with hydrophone cancellation.
- Integration with the Navigation system.
- On-board training capability.
SOCILSUB is an open architecture system which fulfills the commercial standards; it is designed with COTS elements, and it offers a high versatility, a low cost life-cycle and has a highly intuitive and easy to use interface.
The system has been installed onboard the Agosta class Spanish submarines, complies with the most stringent quality requirements and can be adapted to work with the majority of cylindrical array sonars currently installed in submarines worldwide.
