SONAR systems use sound propagation to navigate, communicate with or detect objects on or under the surface of water. If an object is in the path of the sound pulse, the sound bounces off the object and returns an “echo” to the sonar systems.
The acoustic frequencies used in SONARs vary from very low to extremely high. There are two types of SONAR — active and passive. Active Sonar systems emit an acoustic signal or pulse of sound into the water. Unlike active sonars, passive sonars do not emit its own signal, it only detects sound waves coming towards it. Mistral has 20+ years of experience in designing SONAR Electronics and SONAR Systems for data acquisition and signal processing for applications like Diver detection, Towed, Hull-mounted, Dunking SONARS, Coastal Surveillance, CIS/CMS etc.
Mistral offers design and development of rugged, high-performance SONAR Systems and sub-systems like underwater transducers, front-end signal conditioning units, signal processors, and display systems. Mistral works closely with leading-edge aerospace and defense R&D community in India and has been actively involved is design and development of these indigenous SONAR Electronics for various SONARs implemented by the India Defense.
Mistral is certified by CEMILAC for testing and validation for defense electronics and all our SONAR systems ensure environmental compliance and EMI/EMC as per JSS55555, MIL STD 810D/G and MIL STD 461E. With global partnership with leading organizations specializing in defense COTS like Curtiss Wright Defense and Wind River Systems and a strong hardware design and software development team. Mistral can provide custom solutions for various SONAR Electronics and SONAR sub-systems like: Transmitters, Receivers, Beam Forming, Fire Control System (FCS) and Multi-function Displays. These SONAR subsystems can be implemented for multiple platforms like submarines, carriers, fighters, frigates etc.
