DAMS - A fixed Distributed Atmosphere Monitoring System, fully customizable to your needs.

Analox understand the challenges presented by the fluctuating atmosphere onboard a submarine and the various gas dangers the crew need to be protected from. 

We have designed the DAMS to ensure the crew are safeguarded from these risks and that the system is truly reliable and accurate

The flexible design means it can be tailored to your exact requirements, making it ideal for new submarine designs and mid-life upgrades on both AIP and Diesel Electric subs. 

With a state of the art PLC and sensor choices including: oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), refrigerants (R134a) and hydrogen (H2), this mission critical equipment will give you true peace of mind.

Product Overview

DAMS (Distributed Atmosphere Monitoring System) - Several years of development and launched in 2020. The DAMS is a state of the art, flexible, robust and fully configurable submarine atmosphere monitor ideally suited to conventional or AIP submarines and can be tailored to customers specific requirements for EMC, shock, vibration, noise etc.

The DAMS can monitor: O2, CO2, CO, H2 and refrigerants using a variety of sensor technologies: GFC, Electrochemical, NDIR and Catalytic bead.

It is user maintainable, in country and is tried and tested at sea with proven accuracy and reliability, offering true peace of mind.

Every unique submarine deserves a unique monitoring system. The DAMS modular architecture ensures it can fulfill the needs of each individual boat. This approach provides the opportunity to upgrade/change the system as the boat’s requirements change throughout its operational life.

The DAMS is shock, pressure and temperature compensated and tested to withstand the demanding submarine environment. It has successfully passed rigorous sea trials and has now been deployed by multiple nations. 

One of the biggest issues for accurate gas measurement onboard, is the rapid variation in pressure of the submarine environment. Analox knows it is not sufficient to measure pressure centrally as local pressure variations can cause false readings and alarms. Standard industrial sensors just don't cut it in this environment, so to ensure maximum sensor reliability, Analox pressure compensates each individual sensor

We understand you need a system which is simple to maintain with minimal disruption to your patrol. The DAMS can be calibrated by just one person and we also offer multi-gas sensors which can be calibrated simultaneously.

When the Kursk tragedy occurred, Analox were called upon to provide a Sub Escape analyzer to assist in the rescue operation. Within 24 hours the unit was sent by motorcycle courier and used in the recovery attempt.
