In the ASUW realm, the littoral is characterized by higher threat density (from both land and air) as well as a higher density of neutral or benign emitters such as commercial ships.
The P-3C community saw a shift immediately after Desert Storm, with the majority of flight hours now spent on ASUW rather than ASW," according to the officials.
In addition to sensor upgrades, the AIP includes several communications improvements that allow P-3C operators to transmit and receive tactical information to aid in target identification and classification and provide what the Navy calls a network-centric ASUW capability.
Complementing the "long legs" of its fixed-wing aircraft, the Navy has developed a considerable fleet of ship-based helicopters to provide short- and medium-range ASW and ASUW patrol for the majority of its surface vessels.
For its ASUW role, the Romeo will receive a new multimode radar that will include an ISAR capability, imaging and periscope detection modes and a FLIR with a laser designator.
The ability to conduct high fidelity ASW or ASUW
training in a P-3C TORT will also reduce the number of flight hours required to train crews and help extend the life of the P-3C AIP fleet.
According to the request for information (RFI), the ASUW
Improvement Program will enhance the aircraft's interoperability with ASUW
