MQ-9 Demonstrated ASW Capabilities

General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) has used an MQ-9 Predator B remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) to demonstrate its anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capability in a US naval exercise. During the drill, US Navy helicopters deployed a series of sonobuoys which were used to gather acoustic data to assist in the tracking of underwater targets. The data was then transmitted to the MQ-9 RPA and processed onboard before being relayed to the aircraft’s ground control station (GCS) located several hundred miles away from the target area. A track solution was also calculated and transmitted from the aircraft to the GCS via satellite communications (SATCOM).

The technology is expected to offer long-range patrol and relay capabilities to the MQ-9 aircraft. The aircraft was integrated with the company’s Lynx multi-mode radar along with an electro-optical / infrared (EO / IR), high-definition full-motion video (FMV) camera that supports the identification of surface vessels.
