BAE Systems Showcases Minehunting Capabilities
by Marc Ayotte In a media event conducted
on February 29, BAE Systems at their facility located in Hudson announced its delivery of the AN/ SQQ-32(V)4 to the U.S. Navy ahead of schedule. The SQQ- 32(V)4 is a High Frequency Wide Band (HFWB) detection sonar upgrade to the company’s current in-service AN/SQQ-32(V)3 Mine Hunting Sonar Set, originally designed in the 1980s as a deep- water application sonar. The cutting-edge technology enables the Navy’s 14 oceangoing Mine Countermeasures (MCM) AVENGER class ships to detect stealthy mines in challenging and cluttered underwater environments. With over 4,500 employees, BAE Systems is the largest manufacturer in the state of New Hampshire, according to Jeffrey Rose, Director
Public Affairs Electronic Systems. As part of a question and answer session at the local plant, Donna Carson-Jelley and Paul Markwardt
were among those to address the crowd, before a tour of the facility was conducted. Carson-Jelley, BAE’s Major Program Manager (PMS495)
Mine Warfare Program Office, which is responsible for the development, fielding and in-service support for mining and mine countermeasure systems, exclaimed “what a day of celebration” referencing the ahead of schedule delivery and installation of the SQQ-32(V)4 model to a ‘sonar ship’ based in Sasebo, Japan – one of the aforementioned fourteen such vessels. Carson-Jelly added, “this sonar upgrade will provide our sailors with state-of-the-art mine detection capability, enhancing their capability for detecting mines and saving our Sailor’s valuable mission time.” In order to remain effective against modern threat mines, decrease the detect-to-engage timeline, and reduce total ownership cost, the MCM combat system suite is undergoing a modernization program that upgrades the navigation system, minehunting sonar, and minesweeping system. Markwardt, in denoting the BAE motto as being “we protect those
who protect us” discussed the Hudson plant team’s responsibility for the manufacturing of the improved sonar system, saying “we have a great working relationship with the Navy.” Markwardt has been with the company since 1978 and currently holds the title of VP and GM of the Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance Solutions (ISRE) business area for the Electronic Systems sector. In a press release, Michael Houle, who is program manager for
BAE Systems issued a statement echoing Markwardt’s attention to sailor safety; “we are pleased to provide the U.S. Navy with the latest in mine countermeasures capabilities. The High Frequency Wide Band upgrade will enable the Navy to more effectively detect stealthy mines to help ensure the safety of our sailors.” According to Scott Sahlin,
