Acoustic Signature Control

The fitting of properly designed acoustic material to submarines and surface ships can achieve a significant reduction in radiated and self-noise. This will decrease the range at which vessels can be detected and classified and frequently has the benefit of increasing the performance of their own sonar systems.

In order to reduce the probability of detection by active sonar, it is possible to absorb or scatter the sonar energy, by the application of special coatings to the hull of the ship or submarine, the subsequent reduction in target echo strength can considerably reduce the range at which detection is achieved. 

We can also design products that offer proetction from detection from Radar and Sonar.
