Description: The Advanced Deployable System (ADS) is a rapidly deployable undersea surveillance system developed by Lockheed Martin for the US Navy. Lockheed Martin was awarded a contract worth $21 million for ADS in 2004 and a $144 million contract option in January 2006 for continued development. This surveillance system would be embarked on the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) and deployed from its deck.
ADS is based on distributed passive acoustic bottom mounted arrays wirelessly linked to an analysis and reporting system to provide continuous acoustic coverage over large areas of the ocean. Its primary goal of this advanced sensor system is to detect and track modern diesel and nuclear-powered submarines. In addition, the system would provide capability for tracking surface ships and detecting sea mine laying. ADS comprises four major subsystems: analysis and reporting system; sensor; tactical interface, and; installation support.
