AN/SQQ-30 - Mine Classifying / Detecting Sonar

This variable depth minehunting sonar is the standard installation in the MCM 2-9. The AN/SQQ-30 (originally designated the Deep Mod AN/SQQ-14) is an improved version of the SQQ-14. An actual AN/SQQ-14 sonar system was used as the starting point for each AN/SQQ-30 with various improvements made to the system.
