Sea Serpent

Industry Changing ASW Capability

  • Advanced, stealthy, and extremely capable submarines are now readily available at low costs, bringing an offensive submarine capability to many more navies and even non-state actors
  • MIND’s rugged, field-proven, solid-state technology, coupled with unique in-house developed advanced processing, presents an industry-changing towed array ASW capability
  • Sea Serpent ASW system has been designed for rapid deployment from USV platforms or as a ‘clip-on’ capability to existing light- and medium-weight Coast Guard or Naval vessels  
  • MIND Technology towed arrays are modular and scalable, with lengths from 50 m to over 12,000 m acoustic aperture available
  • Processing uses a scalable, app-based architecture and includes multiple beamforming options,  as well as broadband, narrowband/LOFAR, and DEMON processing
  • Other apps will include Automatic Detection and Tracking (ADT) and Target Motion Analysis (TMA)
  • The architecture is fully open to allow third-party/government processing and supports private cloud operation for distributed tracking, multi-static processing, and data fusion
MIND Technology Sea Serpent Towed Arrays, based on COTS Seismic Arrays, applicable for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA), and Waterside Security (WSS) applications.

The new MIND Technology Sea Serpent Towed Array systems are especially designed for medium Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) and smaller manned vessels, either as new built or as part of an upgrade package, creating enhanced ASW capability for existing older Naval Ships.
