U.S. Navy Announces ‘Next Generation Fathometer’ Selection

Ogdensburg, New York, September 5, 2014 – Knudsen Systems Inc. (KSI), has been awarded an $8.1M contract by the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC), Division Keyport, to supply the ‘Next Generation Fathometer’ for the U.S. Navy. KSI distributes sonar products produced by the Canadian manufacturer, Knudsen Engineering Ltd. to U.S. domestic customers, in particular U.S. Federal & State agencies. Under the IDIQ contract, deliverables will include 320N Navigation Echosounders, EchoSim sonar simulators, and remote displays. The 320N Echosounder was initially designed as a drop-in COTS replacement for the aging UQN-4 fathometer to meet retrofit requirements of several U.S. and foreign Navy surface ship classes. However, the 320N has also recently been chosen for several new ship builds including the Zumwalt class destroyers, and new Arleigh Burke class guided missile destroyer.
