Sentinel Sonar Order - 01/05/2009
The US Naval Underwater Warfare Center (NUWC) in Rhode Island (USA) has placed a contract with Sonardyne Inc., Houston (TX, USA) for the supply of an additional Sentinel Intruder Detection Sonar system.
The announcement follows the completion of rigorous acceptance and readiness trials by NUWC in 2008 when Sentinel was shown to meet the US Navy's performance requirements for diver detection. The latest contract adds an additional Sentinel to the new Integrated Swimmer Defence System. This is being led by the Program Executive Office, Littoral Mine Warfare (PEO-LMW - PMS480) and the first Sentinel was delivered to NUWC in March 2009.
