The Combined Active and Passive Towed Array Sonar (CAPTAS) is a highly capable and very mature variable depth sonar (VDS) that is utilized by navies around the world to detect and track submarines. It builds on more than 24 years of experience and incorporates improvements derived from previous VDS generations. Key features include an advanced design that enables high power output in a relatively small package and stabilization features that improve accuracy. The CAPTAS VDS can be scaled to accommodate various size ships and can be integrated into existing combat systems.
The U.S. Navy selected the CAPTAS VDS as the advanced demonstrator model for the littoral combat ship ASW mission package testing. At-sea testing on LCS proved the claimed performance is multiple ocean environments. CAPTAS is ready to be integrated into your platform.
