Just wondering if and how CMO differentiates deployment, use and results of Towed Array Sonar System (TASS) from submarines that are fitted with both thin-line (TB-29) fat-line (TB-16), like the 688i. More of a background question...

I gather they have different purposes and will not be deployed together. Some differences I have read:

TB-29

825m long
3.8cm diameter
VLF
higher search speed
optimised hydrophones


TB-16

75m long
7.5cm diameter
Array in the 'hump'
Faster to stabilise on turns
Variable scope for littoral ops

I'm guessing that preference would usually be for TB-29 deployment, except for high performance maneuvers, when TB-16 would be deployed resulting in a degraded TASS performance.

Hi,

They are treated as distinct sensors (each of them with different acoustic properties etc.), but the differences in deployment that you are highlighting are not modelled.

Thanks.
