Thales to equip Ecuado­ri­an Navy’s 209-type sub­marines with its S‑Cube™ sonar suite

On the 19th of Decem­ber 2007 Thales signed a con­tract with the Chilean ship­yard Asmar for the sup­ply of its lat­est com­pact S‑Cube™ sonar suite.

This equip­ment is part of the mod­ern­iza­tion pro­gramme of the Ecuado­ri­an Navy’s 209 type submarines.

Thales offers to sup­ply its lat­est gen­er­a­tion of sea proven S‑CubeTM sonar sys­tem to ful­fill all the require­ments of the Ecuado­ri­an Navy at no risk and a very com­pet­i­tive price. The sonar con­fig­u­ra­tion pro­posed is based on the same tech­nol­o­gy as the large sonar suites installed on the French and British sub­marines adapt­ed to a very com­pact packaging.

The sonar pro­vides excep­tion­al per­for­mance name­ly thanks to the Pla­nar flank array and use of state of the art sonar pro­cess­ing, espe­cial­ly the adap­tive beam-form­ing already at sea with many navies.

“I am glad to bring to the Ecuado­ri­an Navy our lat­est gen­er­a­tion sys­tems” Guy Baruchel, VP Under­wa­ter Sys­tems says. “For Thales, it is also an oppor­tu­ni­ty to pen­e­trate the mar­ket of sonar retro­fit onboard 209 sub­marines with unmatched technology”.
