The Perry-class frigates, meanwhile, have high mobility and are equipped with the AN/SQQ-89 anti-submarine warfare system, the SQR-19 sonar system and the SQQ-89 undersea warfare combat system
, all of which the Navy said will beef up its anti-submarine capabilities.
The AN/SQQ-89(V) is a fully integrated surface ship undersea warfare combat system
with the capability to search, detect, classify, localize, and attack submarine targets.
The SQS-53C sonar array is part of the AN/SQQ-89 undersea warfare combat system
. EDO will provide the complete sonar array including piezoelectric ceramic materials, transducers, array frames and associated cable assemblies.
