Description: Sonar 2054 is the sonar suite installed on the Royal Navy's Vanguard-class ballistic submarines. Type 2054 sonar suite comprises sonar S2046 towed sonar array, active/passive hull-mounted S2043 and S2082 passive intercept and ranging sonar.
In September 2006, the Royal Navy awarded Lockheed Martin UK a seven-year contract to upgrade this sonar suite which was reporting obsolescence issues. The contract goal was the insertion of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technology into the Sonar 2054 to turn it into an open architecture system. This approach is similar to ARCI which was integrated successfully into US Navy's submarines.
