The Royal Navy of Netherlands acquired 7 SEMA ASW training targets by RTsys

Tracking down enemy submarines is an important task for both frigates and helicopters of the Royal Netherlands Navy. However, training staff is expensive, likewise the training time with submarines is limited and also expensive. A new Anti-Submarine Warfare training target addresses those problems. The Navy waited a long time for the anti-submarine training targets. The system aims to enable low-cost, realistic and accessible training anywhere in the world for operators of the low-frequency LFAPS sonar on the Van Amstel and Van Speijk and the HELRAS sonar on the NH90 maritime helicopters. “The drone simulates a submarine during training. They are relatively cheap, portable, reusable and give a realistic acoustic response within their peripheral frameworks," says Captain-Lieutenant Commander Paul Dröge, Head of the Underwater Combat Technology Bureau. Crew can analyze their training.”
