CTG delivers additional submarine oceanographic systems

Chelsea Technologies Group has completed delivery of a further S2115 oceanographic sensor system, for HMS AUDACIOUS the fourth Royal Navy Astute class submarine. This follows on the successful delivery of systems for HMS ASTUTE, HMS AMBUSH and HMS ARTFUL. A separate system has also been installed at the Shore Based Integration Facility.  

The oceanographic sensors are designed to provide improved situational awareness and enhanced knowledge of the ocean environment. The robust, high precision sensors incorporate novel built in test technologies to extend calibration intervals and decrease maintenance costs. 

The system combines the outboard oceanographic sensors with the expendable bathythermograph system and acoustic modelling tools to provide an integrated environmental suite.  The system includes a shore-based facility. Industry collaborators include Ultra Electronics and Lockheed Martin.

Under a separate a nine and a half year contract Chelsea will provide post design services for support of the Trafalgar Class Sonar 2081 submarine oceanographic sensor suite, under the Miscellaneous Sonar Equipment programme.  The work, which includes service, repair and calibration, will be undertaken at Chelsea’s UK facility utilizing the NAMAS approved calibration laboratory.
