The AN/SQQ-89 Undersea Warfare Combat System is a naval anti-submarine warfare system for surface warships. The system presents an integrated picture of the tactical situation by receiving, combining and processing active and passive sensor data from the hull-mounted array, towed array and sonobuoys. AN/SQQ-89 is integrated with the AEGIS combat system and provides a full range of USW functions including active and passive sensors, underwater fire control, onboard trainer and highly-evolved display subsystem. It provides detection, classification, and targeting capability to the following platforms:
- Oliver Hazard Perry class frigate (FFG-7)
- Spruance class destroyer (DD-963)
- Ticonderoga class cruiser (CG-47)
- Arleigh Burke Class destroyer (DDG-51)
The ASW system combines inputs from active and passive hull mounted sonars, tactical towed arrays, and sonobuoys.
