Ultra’s innovative technologies are cost-effective and involve highly process-controlled manufacturing for the development of leading underwater products.

Acoustic engineering expertise for naval applications

The company has provided sonobuoys for decades, enabling it to develop acoustic engineering expertise in transducer development, acoustic modelling, as well as advanced digital communications and signal processing.

Ultra Electronics – USSI has extensive experience in the design and production of advanced undersea acoustic sensors. Its advanced finite element modelling (FEM) capability eliminates design waste and variability throughout naval applications.

The company offers acoustic signal processing systems and digital communication links.

Tactical acoustic hailing and mass notification units

HyperSpike provides a wide range of tactical acoustic hailing devices and mass notification systems focusing on three key aspects of sound. These are high sound pressure levels (SPL), crystal-clear intelligibility and focused directionality.

Created by the Guinness World Record holder for the loudest electromechanical acoustic device, HyperSpike technology is a market leader in acoustic innovation. The solution offers maritime stand-off enforcement, critical infrastructure protection and mass notification capability. In addition, the solution can be used for offering crowd and riot control, wildlife protection and emergency evacuation voice communication.

Protective and tactical communication systems

Protective and tactical communication systems (PTCS) provide world-class, clear voice amplification products for military, firefighting and hazmat applications.

Ultra Electronics – USSI is actively engaged in developing next-generation communications products that fall into the below categories:

  • Protective mask communications systems
  • Helmet communications systems
  • Short-range wireless squad radio communications systems
  • Integrated soldier power and data system power managers (ISPDS)
  • Electronics and acoustic product development
