ST. PETERSBURG, July 1. /TASS/. The innovative technology developed by the St. Petersburg-based Krylov State Research Center (KGNTS) will significantly improve stealth characteristics of Russian submarines against sonar detecting sets, chief of the KGNTS hull strength department Valery Shaposhnikov told TASS on Wednesday on the first day of the 7th International Maritime Defence Show (IMDS-2015).

"We have developed the corresponding technology and frameworks for submarine equipment and made them from composite materials," Shaposhnikov said. According to the scientist, the innovations are currently undergoing tests and "to date, we have considerably advanced."

"Our innovations make submarines undetectable by underwater detection devices," he said. The enemy’s sonar will not be able to get a reflected hydro-acoustic signal from the submarine as the composite material is very acoustically transparent.

"We get this effect from a very complex internal structure of the composite material we have created," the scientist said. According to him, the new composite material can be used to make stabilisers, bow and stern planes, conning tower fairwater and mast fairwater for submarines.
