AIS manufacturer to supply receiver for Navy sub project

Publish date:

True Heading, an Automatic Identification System and telematics company, will fulfill an expanded order for Lockheed Martin submarines.

The order came after an initial one in 2014.

True Heading, based in Sweden, has been selected to supply the AIS RX PRO special receiver, which Lockheed will use as part of its contract with the U.S. Navy to implement the BLQ-10 system — an electric warfare system for U.S. submarines.

The BLQ-10 system provides automated intercept capability, including detection, classification, localization and identification of both radar and communications signals.

The AIS RX PRO is designed with AIS receiving capacity only. That gives navies a secure means to see all AIS traffic transmitted within the available coverage; it can also intercept addressed messages between other AIS stations, such as ships, aircraft and ground stations.

“We are honored to be able to continue to offer our AIS receivers to such a distinguished client,” said True Heading CEO Anders Bergström in a statement. “True Heading constantly strives to produce the highest-quality products with the most features at a cost-effective and competitive price. To have a repeat order of this magnitude is a testament to our innovation and reliability.”
