Ultra Electronics installs S2150 sonar on RN frigate

6th April 2020 - 17:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Ultra Electronics has installed the first S2150 Hull Mount Sonar on a RN Type 23 frigate HMS Portland according to a 6 April statement.

The new sonar will replace the legacy Sonar Type 2050 which has been used on several RN vessels since the 1990s. Currently plans will see the sonar fitted to at least eight Type 23 ships.

Mike Williams, Managing Director of Command & Sonar Systems said: ‘Reaching this significant milestone has been key for Ultra. With a number of significant challenges from the Sonar 2050 system it replaces, the project team has designed and developed a system that simplifies user operability.’

Smaller and lighter versions of the S2150 have also been produced for naval ships weighing between 1,000t and 2,000t.

The upgrade will enhance the RN’s ASuW capability on its frigates and OPVs.
