Sonar complexes and systems


Hydroacoustic station “TRONKA”

HYDROACOUSTIC-STATION-TRONKA It is intended for detection of underwater diversionary forces and means (UDFM) to protect: the ships at their anchorage in the high sea, on roadstead, in unprotected points of basing; the hydro-engineering and important objects in ports and harbors. The station provides: UDFM automated detection, tracking and classification; automated measurement of detected targets coordinates and data transfer to the fire control systems. The station it is provided the detection of swimmer with closed type aqualung at the distance up to 500 m, depth from 1 to 40 m, at sea roughness up to 3 balls, with accuracy of 1.5 % in range and 2 deg in elevation. Up to 6 targets may be detected and tracked simultaneously.

Sonar system for securing of coastal zones


Sonar System of coastal zone underwater guarding signalization

The system can detect submarines  moving with different speed, provides direction of movement and coordinates

Information about detected  moving underwater object is transmitted to coastal post via the desk-size radio buoys of VHF band

Consists of

  • Radio receiving costal posts
  • Anchor passive radiohydroacoustic (sonar) stations (APRHAS)
  • Released from under water stations (APRHAS) the desk-size radio buoys of VHF band

DS Series mobile degaussing complex


The mobile complex is intended for electromagnetic treatment (EMT) of different naval objects with following main tasks:

  • decrease of resultant magnetic field up to the demanded range
  • directional formation of ship magnetic state
  • check ranging of magnetic state of ship

The dynamic uncoiled degaussing of naval objects is implemented by electromagnetic field of electric current running through the object following sequence:

  • vessel magnetic field (VMF) measurement by portable system with single axis sensors
  • overturning of recovered VMF
  • 1st VMF compensation
  • 2nd VMF compensation

Main features of EMT with DS stations

  • Mobility of the complex
  • Allows degaussing without application of coils wrapping around the ship
  • Reduced time and energy resources
  • Use of autonomous diesel generators
  • Possibility of transportation to the place of magnetic treatment by land or sea
