AN/SSN-2 - Precise Integrated Navigation System

Comprising commercial hardware (SATNAV/GPS, Loran C, Hyper-Fix and a Doppler Sonar navigator), integrated and controlled by dedicated MCM software, this system provides the means to locate the ship and the target precisely. The system maintains and displays the shipšs track, and integrates the target mine information into the navigation plot. The computer-controlled navigation process can select the most accurate of the several navigational inputs available. The AN/SSQ-2 is installed in the MCM 1 Class only. The MHC 51 Class ships are equipped with a less complex system (AN/SYQ-13) similar to the Integrated Shipboard System/Fix/sonar-integrated system used in the MSO Class.
