Ultra to Supply Towed Arrays to Be Used by Royal New Zealand Navy

Ultra Electronics Maritime Systems Inc. (Ultra) is pleased to announce that it will supply towed arrays to its sister company, UK-based Ultra Electronics Sonar Systems, that will ultimately be used by the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN), as reported on 21st July 2014.

The Sonar Systems business announced a contract valued at approximately $18M (CAD) to supply two Sea Sentor Surface Ship Torpedo Defence systems for the RNZN Frigate Systems Upgrade (FSU) programme. Ultra's towed array is the key acoustic sensor for Sea Sentor, a system installed in naval ships to detect, classify and localize incoming torpedoes, and to activate countermeasures against them.

Ultra designs, develops, and manufactures various towed arrays for surface ships and submarines at its facility in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. New Zealand joins Canada, the UK, Australia, The Netherlands, and Turkey in the company's portfolio of international customers.

Ken Walker, president of Ultra, commented: "I am very proud to be extending our made in Canada solutions deeper into international waters with the Royal New Zealand Navy. This contract is proof that Ultra continues to provide world-class sonar systems."
