USN SURTASS Program Support
When the U.S. Navy needed to ensure the recovery of the AN/UQQ-2 Surveil- lance Towed Sensor System (SUR-
TASS) in case of loss at sea, it reached out to RJE International. The SUR-
TASS system is a passive surveillance system that consists of long acoustic arrays towed by the T-AGOS class naval ships. In support the Navy’s ASW mission, SURTASS provides long-range detection, tracking and classi? cation of both diesel and nuclear powered submarines. To ensure the recovery of these arrays, the U.S. Navy has selected
RJE International’s ATT-400 underwater acoustic transponder for subsea reloca-
RJE/USN HII Sonardyne tion in case of loss.
