AN/SQQ-28(V) Sonar Signal Processing Set
LAMPS III Shipboard
The AN/SQQ-28 sonar signal processing system, part of the SQQ-89 (V) USW Combat System, provides shipboard sonobuoy processor support for the Light Airborne Multipurpose System (LAMPS MK III) to detect submarines and provide accurate classification and targeting data. The LAMPS helicopter uses sonobuoys and magnetic anomaly detection devices to detect underwater contacts. Acoustic and electromagnetic data generated by these sensors are relayed from the helicopter to ownship for processing, evaluation, and display by the AN/SQQ-28. The AN/SQQ-28 also provides for the relaying of tactical instructions, weapon delivery information, and transmission of other processed data, including digitized voice communications to the LAMPS helicopter. When the LAMPS helicopter is performing its anti-ship surveillance and targeting mission, the AN/SQQ-28 relays radar and ESM data from the helicopter to ownship's command and control system. The system incorporates the AN/UYS-1 Advanced Signal Processor (ASP) Input Signal Conditioner (ISC) subunit to provide analog and digital input channels and preconditioning of acoustic signal data received from sonobouys, as well and other functions including tape control and audio.
