“Ultra Electronics is proud to continue our partnership with the US Navy as the system and software provider on the AN/BPS submarine navigation radar. With the continued increase in global maritime traffic, the demand for safe surfaced navigation of the U.S.’s Submarine Fleet has never been greater. Ultra’s role to continue to provide new and improved radar processing and display capabilities for the Navy’s submarine forces will bring about modern navigational displays, improved situational awareness to the operators, and safety to the fleet.”
