Anti-submarine warfare (ASW) crews can get the focused training they need to maintain critical ASW combat skills with Lockheed Martin’s line of recoverable and expendable ASW training targets.
Over the last 20 years, Lockheed Martin has amassed a wealth of knowledge in underwater vehicle design, manufacturing and deployment. The vehicles are capable of being launched from aircraft (fixed and rotary winged), submarines and almost any type of surface craft or ship.
Lockheed Martin has developed and produced vehicles with the U.S. Navy under the MK 39 EMATT (Expendable Mobile ASW Training Target) program. The EMATT was designed as an “A” size vehicle so that it could be launched out of sonobuoy launchers of aircraft as well as off of a moving surface ship. The company has also designed and manufactures SUBMATT, a submarine launched version of the EMATT. Recoverable targets include the Self-Propelled Acoustic Target (SPAT) and the newest addition, the MK 30 Mod 2, for higher fidelity training on/off acoustic tracking ranges.
