Abstract:

A towed array handling system is provided for installation within the enlarged sails of future submarines. The system has a large diameter reel which provides storage for the entire array and two cable when not deployed. The area within the enlarged sail is sufficient to allow for a dual winch and reel system for separately storing and deploying single line and or multi-line arrays.
