BQQ-6 Passive Sonar
The BQQ-6 Passive Sonar on the Ohio-class submarines is a long-range passive-only sonar. The Trident Submarine System Improvement Program develops and integrates command and control improvements needed to maintain Trident submarine operational capability through the life cycle of this vital strategic asset. The program conducts efforts needed to ensure platform invulnerability, and reduce life cycle costs. Recent efforts have included the development of AN/BQQ-6 Sonar to AN/BQQ-5E Sonar Translator.
