The contract, with a value of £25 million over the next 10 years, was won through competitive tender. It underpins SEA’s sonar equipment and systems capability and strong relationship with the UK MoD. Under the new contract, SEA will expand its innovative Anti-Submarine Warfare solutions, through the design and development of a part of the MoD’s next generation sonar equipment.

Additionally, having successfully delivered this service as part of a previous contract, SEA will continue to maintain a range of the Royal Navy’s existing sonars and deliver the equipment on an availability basis, ensuring that it is consistently ready for operations.

SEA offers a range of radars including KraitArray.

KraitArray is a product family of low profile miniaturised acoustic arrays suitable for low speed towed or static applications. Systems Engineering & Assessment (SEA) have made use of their knowledge and experience of larger diameter arrays to develop this highly adaptable product that provides impressive performance with reduced power consumption, weight, drag and cost when compared with traditional line and towed arrays.
