Ultra is to continue to provide support for the Royal Navy’s Type 45 destroyer’s Gun System, Automation (GSA9) under an in-service support contract with the British MoD. The three-year contract, with the option for a two-year extension, will provide support for all aspects of the electro-optical (EO) tracking system for GSA9.
Ultra’s EO tracking system is based on its proven Type 2500 design and employs the latest proven sensor and servo technologies, configured from a common set of commercial/modified of the shelf (COTS/MOTS) baseline modules. This modularity allows a system to be assembled to meet specific requirements without technical, delivery or price risk.
Featuring high-resolution video performance with extensive levels of automation requiring minimal operator intervention, the system simplifies operations throughout all stages of surveillance, detection, acquisition, tracking and engagement.
