UK: Sonardyne Delivers Its Largest Sonar for Protection of Naval Bases

Sonardyne Delivers Its Largest Sonar for Protection of Naval Bases

Sonardyne International Ltd.’s maritime security division has delivered its largest ever order of Sentinel Intruder Detection Sonar systems to an undisclosed country in Asia.

 

The sonars will be deployed to protect strategically important naval bases across the country and will be configured to provide long range, wide area detection, tracking and classification of underwater threats. The system uses Sonardyne’s latest tracking software that combines data from multiple sonars to produce a single picture of the underwater environment, providing wide area situational awareness to operators and commanders.

Sentinel is the world’s most widely deployed diver detection sonar, developed to meet the underwater security requirements of private, commercial, government and naval end users. The system reliably detects, tracks and classifies divers and small underwater vehicles approaching a protected asset. Whether it is protecting a critical infrastructure facility, offshore platform, sea port or private yacht at anchor, Sentinel’s autonomous monitoring capabilities, long range detection and proven false alarm rates provide a rapidly deployable 360° underwater security solution for any application.

“Since its introduction to the market, Sentinel has taken reliable, long range intruder detection to a new level, outperforming far more expensive and complex technologies,” said Nick Swift, Business Manager for Sonardyne Maritime Security. “This latest order reflects the excellent performance and reliability of Sentinel and we will continue to work closely with the customer during system commissioning and installation.”
