Raytheon Completes Sonar Platform Delivery to DARPA - top government contractors - best government contracting event

sonarThe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has received a Raytheon-built sonar system for integration with the Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel program.

Raytheon said Wednesday it handed the Modular Scalable Sonar System to DARPA as part of a subcontract it won from Leidos.

MS3 is an open architecture-based platform designed to perform torpedo warning, search-and-tracking and small-object avoidance functions for the ACTUV program.

Raytheon will integrate the sonar system with a Leidos-made prototype trimaran that will be used as the unmanned vehicle for the program.

The ACTUV initiative seeks to develop an unmanned vessel that works to detect and monitor diesel-electric submarines through the use of new sensor systems.
