Plath enhances submarine intelligence
Plath has introduced a new intelligence system that provides communications electronic support measures (C-ESM) and communication intelligence (COMINT) capabilities for submarines.
The system is designed to provide mission-essential C-ESM capabilities, such as automatic rapid indication of threatening communication signals; and extensive omni-directional COMINT capabilities, which can be pre-tasked during the sub-surface phase and executed automatically at periscope depth. Together, this combination of C-ESM and COMINT capabilities is designed to enhance the maritime situational picture, in real-time and also offline.
The high sensitivity and dynamic range of the Plath receivers connected to a third party antenna provides the user with a precise signal overview of the whole communication frequency range. It provides automatic bearing and content data for every intercepted signal, and enhances detection ranges for tactical superiority.
Andre Richter, director sales, Plath, said: ‘Whether a new acquisition, upgrade or retrofit – Plath is an established and reliable provider for navies worldwide. With our C-ESM/COMINT solutions for submarines, we strengthen our leading position in communication intelligence.’

Activity in the Electro-Magnetic Environment (EME) is increasingly focused towards supporting digital sources. The rise of wide area networking, mobile communications and automation across civilian and defence applications, means key sections of the spectrum are highly congested and, from a military perspective, increasingly contested. This growth is likely to be sustained through the proliferation of devices exploiting digitally enabled functionality through automation, internet of things and space-based data services.
