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.
