DETECTION FROM LONG RANGE
The main sonar sensors of conventional submarines are wet-end arrays of passive sonar systems, which are in the forms of spherical or cylindrical. The array aperture of these sonars are narrow and generally operate higher frequencies than 1 kHz. However, in Flank Array Sonar systems, since the receiving hydrophone elements are mounted along with the submarine hull, the array aperture increases, thus, high detection performance is obtained by operating at low frequencies.
INCREASED ARRAY APERTURE
Flank array sonar sensors, mounted symmetrically on port and starboard sides of the submarines; provide excellent detection characteristics at low frequencies, thanks to the increased array aperture.
