General Dynamics Canada to Modernize Acoustic Processors for Australian Air Force

General Dynamics Canada has been awarded a contract to replace the existing signal processing capabilities of the UYS-503 Acoustic Processing System for the Royal Australian Air Force’s fleet of 18 AP-3C Orion Patrol Aircraft. Work will be performed in Ottawa, Ontario and Adelaide, South Australia.

Under the contract, General Dynamics Canada, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), will be replacing obsolete processing cards in the current acoustic system with the company’s PA9000 Single Board Computers equipped with Pentium® M processors. The computers will significantly enhance the AP-3C’s active and passive capabilities required to detect, localize and track modern nuclear and diesel submarines in the most challenging environments.

In-flight training of crewmembers will be enhanced by the UYS-503’s embedded Tactical Acoustic Trainer providing realistic simulation of acoustic contacts and oceanography. The embedded trainer supports progressive crew training from simple, single-contact scenarios to those featuring complex multiple-contact, mixed ocean environments.
