Teledyne Reson has been awarded a contract by Lockheed Martin Global for the delivery of multiple sonar systems for mine counter measure applications for an international defense program.
The award includes delivery of the new SeaBat 7123-MkII, suitable for both commercial and military applications.
Commercial applications include underwater inspection related tasks, long range detection of objects in the water column and scientific research. Military uses include use as a component in mine counter measure (MCM) for detection of mine like objects.
The system operates at three different frequencies to provide optimum flexibility and can be mounted on most platforms, including AUVs, ROVs and surface vessels, the company explained.
“We are excited about another opportunity to deliver our unique 7123-MkII forward looking sonar into a large defense program,” said Ole Søe-Pedersen, VP & general manager of Teledyne Reson, Odom and BlueView.
