GeoSpectrum Technologies to showcase their Towed Reelable Active Passive Sonar (TRAPS) at CANSEC 2018

May 24, 2018


GeoSpectrum Technologies (GTI) will showcase the highly anticipated TRAPS (Towed Reelable Active Passive Sonar) at the CANSEC exhibition in Ottawa May 30-31, 2018.


The display of GeoSpectrum’s TRAPS showcase will include its innovative JackFish Projector, winch drum, receive array and tow cable, in a 20’ ISO container, to be exhibited at the outdoor area.


Recently purchased by the Royal Canadian Navy, TRAPS is a Low Frequency (LF) variable-depth-sonar intended for detection, tracking and classification of submarines, midget submarines, surface vessels and torpedoes. Its’ “wet-end” towed arrays’ acoustic elements are a vertical projector and a receive array. TRAPS’ unique advantage is that its’ projector array is reel-able and stows on the winch drum with the receive array and tow cable. This system will allow the Royal Canadian Navy to expand the capabilities of ships like the Kingston and Henry Dewolfe Class into an Anti-submarine role.


Paul Yeatman, President of GTI, commented:  “The TRAPS containerized ASW system is a Game Changer for the RCN, giving extended value to the Kingston Class and providing an opportunity for the Harry deWolfe Class to include sub surface monitoring in the Canadian Arctic. GeoSpectrum strongly believes this product will also see many sales internationally and is a strong indicator of the value of the BCIP program under which it was purchased.”
