Target Motion Analysis — Bearing only analysis from passive sensors (Sonar and ESM) — TMA enables the watchkeeping team to derive the Bearing, Range, Course and Speed of a contact based on bearing movement analysis and estimated ranges established from Sonar or ESM, and to incorporate visual range estimates from periscope sightings.
Having originally been developed for Submarine Operations, this module continues to gain prominence and distinction as a bearing only analysis tool for all vessels that employ passive acoustic sensors such as a towed array.
• Operator plotted LOPs, zig circles, and solution lines
• Ability to develop several contacts simultaneously
• Plots overlaid on a fully-featured visual chart display
