Atlas Elektronik U.K. Ltd. (AEUK) confirmed that that their Cerberus Mod2 Diver Detection Sonar has now successfully completed its Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) at their premises in the U.K. against a particularly comprehensive and demanding set of requirements set by the German Government.

Of particular significance was the accreditation of a completely new design and build of a bespoke Power Supply and Processing Unit (PSPU) to the Mil-Std EMC and Environmental qualification standards set by the customer as well as the stringent German Information Security (BSI) testing which further complements the integrity of the AEUK design.

AEUK will now enter a period of formal training with the German Navy as the system heads towards its in-service date for the F125 frigate, the first NATO vessel to be fitted with a Diver Detection Sonar.
