Japan Maritime Aircraft to Receive Magnetic Anomaly Detection System

Canadian aviation technology firm CAE has announced the delivery of its Magnetic Anomaly Detection – Extended Role (MAD-XR) system to Japan’s Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.

The Japanese company will install the system aboard the P1 Maritime Patrol Aircraft operated by the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF).

According to CAE, the MAD-XR system will support the country’s anti-submarine warfare operations.

It can also be integrated into a variety of manned and unmanned platforms, providing enhanced submarine detection capabilities under challenging operational conditions.

“Our continued commitment to innovation and customer-driven solutions allows CAE to meet the changing needs of the training and operational environments,” company vice president Marc-Olivier Sabourin said.

Additional Capabilities

CAE’s MAD-XR is described as a “highly-sensitive” system intended to detect changes in the earth’s magnetic field.

This capability allows it to track enemy submarines deep under water.

Additionally, the system brings expanded range and sensitivity while also reducing size, weight, and power requirements.

“The delivery of the MAD-XR system continues the long-standing relationship between CAE and [Mitsubishi Electric Corporation] dating back to 2004 and reflects CAE’s commitment to providing advanced training and sensor technology to clients in the strategically significant Asia-Pacific region,” the company stated.
