The In­dian Navy’s brand new Raytheon MK54 light anti-sub­ma­rine tor­pe­does—con­tracted last year, yet to be de­liv­ered—will sport Northrop Grum­man nose ar­rays. The tor­pe­does will be de­ployed from the Navy’s new P-8I air­craft, a plat­form from which the tor­pedo has al­ready been tested by the US Navy. The weapon was tested for the first time in the US Navy’s At­lantic Test Range in Oc­to­ber 2011.

Speak­ing on the acous­tic nose ar­ray as­sem­blies his com­pany will now be de­liv­er­ing to the US Navy for fit­ment on the tor­pe­does for In­dia, Tom Jones, Vice Pres­i­dent for un­der­sea sys­tems at Northrop Grum­man, said, “We are pleased to sup­port the US Navy’s tor­pedo en­ter­prise once again by pro­vid­ing this un­der­sea war­fare ca­pa­bil­ity to the Navy and our in­ter­na­tional part­ners.”
