Sonardyne International has announced the delivery of 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 was developed to meet the underwater security requirements of private, commercial, government and naval end users. The system is designed to detect, track and classify divers and small underwater vehicles approaching a protected asset. Such systems are commonly used to protect critical infrastructure facilities, offshore platforms, sea ports or private yachts at anchor. Once deployed, the system provides autonomous monitoring of its surrounding over 360° and at long range, and low false alarm rates.
