The towed array sonar ACTAS operates in the low-frequency range and permits observation of the sea space at ranges in excess of 60 kilometers, depending on the sound propagation conditions of the water. The performance of ACTAS delivers to warships an exceptional operational range advantage over both the operational range of radars and weapons systems employed by submarines. ACTAS can also locate and track surface vessels which permits reconnaissance of both submarines and ships in the same sonar search area.
