The Indian Ministry of Defense has signed a contract with Atlas Elektronik for the delivery of six active towed array sonar systems (ACTAS) for the Indian Navy.

The total contract volume is approximately 40 million Euros. Delivery of the first system is planned for 2016.

The towed array sonar ACTAS operates in the low-frequency range and permits observation of the sea space at ranges in excess of 60 kilometers, depending on the sound propagation conditions of the water. The performance of ACTAS delivers to warships an exceptional operational range advantage over both the operational range of radars and weapons systems employed by submarines. ACTAS can also locate and track surface vessels which permits reconnaissance of both submarines and ships in the same sonar search area.
