Description: The Sonar 2193 has been designed to improve mine countermeasures vessels detection capability against latest stealthy mines. It uses advanced wide-band technology that emits a signal containing a wide range of frequencies instead of traditional one one signal frequency. The wide-band technology allows detection of mines with greater accuracy and longer ranges.

The Royal Navy awarded Thales UK a £52 million ($93 million) contract for development and production of 8 Sonar 2193 with Nautis 3 command and control system to be integrated on eight Hunt class countermeasures vessels. The first system achieved operational capability aboard HMS Hurworth on 17 March 2004, with the last system integration scheduled for April 2005.
