NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Used worldwide on several classes of diesel-electric submarines, sales of the CSU-90 integrated submarine-mounted sonar system are likely to parallel those of its main platforms -- particularly the Type 209, Type 212, and Type 214 submarines. Each of these submarine classes can be expected to be sold at a rate of two to four boats per year over the next several years.

CSU-90 sonar production projections are based upon the commissioning dates of known CSU-90 platforms, plus the addition of those platforms for which the CSU-90 is the dominant contender.

In the future, perhaps a decade or so from now, the CSU-90 will probably be replaced by more advanced developments in the family, much as the CSU-90 displaced the CSU-83. Such developments could include new types of conformal arrays and provisions for the operation and control of unmanned vehicles. It is probable that the design of the platform submarines is undergoing a major change, and the CSU-series sonar will have to reflect that if it is to remain viable.

MOSCOW -- The second frigate in the Admiral Gorshkov class will head to a new stage of trials later this month.

In a statement to TASS Russian News Agency on April 17, 2019, Severnaya Verf Shipyard said that Admiral Kasatonov, the second of the Admiral Gorshkov class frigates, should enter the 'second stage' of its factory sea trials before the end of this month. The shipyard stated, "Most likely, this may happen on April 20 or 21 but it is not ruled out that the ship's departure for the sea may be delayed for several more days."

Earlier in the year, Severnaya Verf CEO Igor Ponomaryov had said that the vessel would enter the second stage of factory sea trials either in March or April 2019.

Admiral Kasatonov is the second Project 22350 frigate, following lead ship Admiral Gorshkov, which was commissioned last year. In 2009, Severnaya Verf laid Admiral Kasatonov down. It was launched five years later, in 2014, and should enter service before the of 2019, likely in December. Project 22350 frigates displace 5,400 tons full load, with a length of up to 120 meters. For armaments, the warships have Kalibr cruise missiles as well as the Redut air-defense system.

Another two vessels in the class should be laid down on April 23, 2019.
