Description: The Lockheed Martin AN/SQR-20 Multi-Function Towed Array (MFTA) is a passive and active sonar receiver configured as a long three inch diameter array that can be towed behind surface ships. The MFTA has been designed to support the US Navy's AN/SQQ-89A(V)15 antisubmarine warfare combat system replacing the AN/SQR-19 tactical towed array system (TACTAS). Compared with its predecessor, the MFTA offers several enhancements enabling greater coverage and increased capability and reliability. It contributes to the capability of surface ships to detect, localize and prosecute undersea threats, and is a critical sensor for the ship's combat systems suite. The MFTA towed array system is scheduled for integration aboard latest Burke-class destroyers and upgraded Ticonderoga-class cruisers and slated for use on future DDG 1000 destroyers and the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS).
