I believe the towed array takes away a lot of that advantage as for it to work you have to go at relatively slow speed and stay on a steady course. It's also quite a way behind the ship so any...

It's about six hours expenditure by the NHS, or as someone else put it 'barely gets you to an early breakfast on new year's day'. NHS budget is 150B so ~400m a day.

It truly wouldn't, unlike GA aircraft they can't just velcro something to the instrument panel so the cost soon becomes excessive when trying to integrate into a glass cockpit.
