Portability supports replay and analysis of recorded acoustic data immediately following maritime patrol missions, anywhere in the world.

OTTAWA, Ontario — General Dynamics Canada has delivered the first of three deployable fast-time analysis systems for the CP-140 Aurora Maritime Patrol Aircraft.  The portable system, designed to fit through the crew door of the CP-140 aircraft, can be deployed with the aircraft for missions away from the main operating base in Canada and allows ground crews immediate access to post-flight analysis of critical acoustic data, confirming and classifying targets.

"Wherever in the world Canada's Aurora is called to action, crews can easily transport this system and allow ground crews to replay and analyze recorded acoustic information as soon as the aircraft lands," said David Ibbetson, vice president, General Dynamics C4 Systems International. "This time-critical access to recorded acoustic data supports command-level decision making as target identities are confirmed, classified and characterized in the field.  The replay capability, at speeds more than eight times faster than normal, enables mission reconstruction and debriefing as well as providing the opportunity for onsite crew training immediately following missions."

In Canada the system is referred to as the Deployable Modular VME Acoustic Signal Processor (MVASP) Post Processing and Archiving System or D-MPPAS; it makes up part of the ground equipment for the Aurora Incremental Modernization Program (AIMP).  Internationally, the system will be sold under the name Acoustic Replay Intelligence Exploitation System, or ARIES.

General Dynamics Canada is the prime integrator of the Aurora mission system and provides integrated hardware and software systems that enable the aircraft's capabilities in a variety of roles, including search and rescue, airborne command and control, surface and sub-surface maritime, overland and coastal surveillance operations. General Dynamics Canada is also providing ground support equipment, including a software integration lab, pre- and post-mission analysis tools, and training facilities, as well as long-term in-service support (ISS).

General Dynamics Canada is part of General Dynamics C4 Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD). For information about General Dynamics Canada please go to www.gdcanada.com.
