Ultra completes delivery of Electromagnetic Open Sea Range (EMOSR) Systems to QinetiQ

02 APRIL 2020

Ultra completed delivery of 2 sets of Underwater Ranging equipment to QinetiQ for installation at test facilities in the UK. Deliveries included undersea sensors and cables, software and a towable raft generating electromagnetic and acoustic fields.

The purpose of the system is to measure the electromagnetic and acoustic signatures of naval vessels and to determine the signatures of those vessels. This allows optimisation of the signatures to be achieved  to reduce the threat to platforms and support warfighting effectiveness.

The Electromagnetic Open Sea range is a key UK military test asset being delivered under QinetiQ’s Long Term Partnering Agreement with the UK MoD for the provision of test facilities in the UK.
