Description: The Combined Active and Passive Towed Array Sonar (CAPTAS) is a family of long-range, Low Frequency Active Sonar (LFAS) systems developed by Thales Underwater Systems to support surface ship's anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capability. The CAPTAS towed Variable Depth Sonar (VDS) is well suited for detection of modern diesel-powered submarines in the littoral, deep and shallow water environments. Its range of performance levels, defined by the power of acoustic transmission and the gain of the receiver subsystem, enables integration onto a wide range of surface ships such as corvettes, frigates and/or destroyers. CAPTAS family also features a faired tow cable for optimum Towed Body (TB) depth control, COTS processing architecture and port-starboard non ambiguous discrimination on receive array.
The Thales CAPTAS 1 is a towed array sonar tailored for small and medium-sized surface combatants and patrol vessels displacing 300 tons or more and performing anti-submarine warfare (ASW) missions. The CAPTAS 1 is offered within a lightweight, modular and compact sonar suite that features lower acquisition cost, easy installation, sea-proven technologies, high reliability, robust design, low operating costs and easy to use. The system includes the Thales BlueWatcher hull-mounted sonar and the CAPTAS 1 towed array sonar to engage underwater threats. The BlueWatcher sonar builds on the FLASH dipping sonar deployed by helicopters. The new sonar suite along with CAPTAS 1 was launched at Euronaval exhibition in October 2014.
