Submarine Intercept and Analysis (IntAna) System
The IntAna system is a compact, low cost, open architecture, COTS-based intercept and analysis Sonar designed for installation on submarines operating in high density acoustic target/threat environments. IntAna provides submarine crews with real time capability to detect, track, and classify the full range of active sonar signals from surface ships, submarines, and underwater weapons for rapid and accurate tactical decision making. The 500 KHz acoustic bandwidth is the widest available in today’s market. Covering the frequencies of all ASW sonars, weapons, side scanning sonars, underwater communications devices, diver sonars, and fish-finding sonars, the IntAna system supports detailed passive acoustic analysis and recording of signals from numerous and varied passive sonar arrays and sensor configurations.
IntAna systems feature a flexible and intuitive graphical-user interface with extensive analysis and display tools that run under an advanced, commonly used operating system. The system processing and display software can easily be integrated into current or future combat and weapons control systems. Originally developed for the Royal Swedish Navy and currently deployed on several of their submarines around the world, IntAna systems are now being evaluated by several other countries for integration into their submarine combat systems.
