HUNTOP is a research tool for calculating the performance of a minehunting detection sonar. The TNO Physics and Electronics Laboratory has been tasked to develop an operational version of HUNTOP to be installed on board of the RNIN Alkmaar Class minehunters. This system, enhanced with real-time sensor and measurement devices, is called the Real-Time Performance Indicator (RTPI). The RTPI system consists of the following components: sonar control logging and reverberation/noise measurement unit; environment measurement unit; ship navigation logging unit; HUNTOP sonar performance calculation module; HUNTOP tilt angle optimisation module.
