Rigorous testing

The MK54 provides a high-level sonar source, narrow beams to improve performance in contested environments and reliability as proven during in-water exercises. It has undergone over 25,000 high-fidelity simulation runs at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport, Rhode Island.

Increased performance and effectiveness

Under the current MK54 Mod 2 program, Raytheon is developing new propulsion and warhead technology. These enhancements will increase weapon effectiveness against a wide range of targets and provide the U.S. Navy with an incremental jump in weapon performance.
