USS Lassen Receives Acoustic and ASW Training

Two acoustic intelligence (ACINT) specialists from the Office of Naval Intelligence, based out of Washington, D.C., embarked aboard the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Lassen (DDG 82) to provide training on acoustic and anti-submarine warfare (ASW) areas, May 15.

Scheduled to be onboard until early July, the ACINT specialists are working to increase the capability of the ship’s sonar team and help the command ensure future mission success.

ACINT is collection of acoustic signatures from waterborne sources, actively and passively picked up by a ship’s sonar system. With the detection and analysis of these sounds, the ship is able to classify a contact as a ship, submarine, sonar, underwater weapon, or marine life.

Lassen, one of seven destroyers assigned to Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 15, is currently on patrol in the South China Sea conducting presences operations in support of security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
