Original Press Release:
Ultra Electronics – USSI Announces the Launch of a Low Cost Sonobuoy Receiver (LCSR)
Ultra Electronics Undersea Sensor Systems, Inc. (USSI) announces the development and launch of a Low Cost Sonobuoy Receiver (LCSR). Building upon its experience gained with existing systems, new developments and technology advances, Ultra Electronics USSI has developed an advanced sonobuoy receiver for engineering and laboratory bench purposes. While reducing the cost per channel for affordability to the end user, the LCSR permits engineering test, development and evaluation in a field and laboratory environment in order to enhance both anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and sonobuoy technology. The newly designed LCSR, for reception and remote control of sonobuoys, is the only receiver on the market inexpensively priced for use in laboratory environments, short range field testing and production line testing.
The new receiver’s on-board signal capture, demodulation, signal quality monitoring, and output data formatter provide stand-alone capability which only requires the user’s personal computer for configuration and data capture. The flexibility of the system allows processing resources to focus more on data analysis and less on operation.
Patrick Allison, Vice President Business Development of USSI commented:
“USSI is proud to develop and field the LCSR which will complement the over five thousand Ultra Electronics installed sonobuoy receivers around the world and support naval laboratories and engineering in their continued advancement of ASW technology .”
The Ultra Electronics – USSI LCSR is available in a 1, 2, or 4 channel version, and features a single 1RU rackmount enclosure, 110 VAC/60 Hz power, and command signal generator software application. The LCSR is fully compatible with the Navy standard SDSR, manufactured by Ultra Electronics Flightline Systems, as well as the SSQ-36, SSQ-53, SSQ-62, SSQ-101, SSQ-113, and SSQ-125/125A sonobuoys.
