OTTAWA, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Acoustic processor systems from General Dynamics Canada have been chosen for use in an aircraft upgrade program for the Navy of the Republic of Korea.

Making the selection of the company's Vpx ENhanced Open architecture Multi-static -- VENOM -- sonobuoy processors was Korean Air Lines Co. Ltd, the prime contractor to modernize the Korean Navy's P-3C Orion maritime patrol aircraft.

"Acoustic operators face considerable challenges detecting today's stealthy submarine threats, and the sheer volume of sensor data that they must manage and analyze in order to develop a complete situational awareness picture can be overwhelming," said David Ibbetson, vice president, General Dynamics C4 Systems-International. "This new, advanced generation of acoustic processors helps operators handle their complex tasks more effectively and efficiently than ever before."

The VENOM system -- compact and modular -- is an advanced acoustic processor for underwater acoustic signal acquisition and processing that helps acoustic operators quickly and accurately detect, classify and track submarines in complex undersea environments.

The value of the 10 units ordered and their delivery schedule were not detailed.
