Chinese Contract for Sonardyne - 18/06/2009

Sonardyne Asia Pte. Ltd has signed a major contract in China for its Sentinel Intruder Detection Sonar (IDS) system. The order, valued at over USD1.5M, is for the protection of an undisclosed infrastructure project in China and includes the provision of multiple, linked sonar heads to provide wide area underwater security coverage. Delivery and installation of the system is scheduled to occur during the summer of 2009.


Designed to protect vessels, ports and waterside installations from intrusion by divers, swimmers or surface vehicles, Sentinel automatically detects, tracks and classifies an underwater threat at long ranges.


Sentinel systems are now deployed and operational in America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia where they are protecting commercial property, strategic infrastructure, coastal zones, ports and harbours, VIPs and military installations. The system has shown a 100% success rate in detecting targets at long ranges and in differentiating between divers, surface swimmers and non-threats such as pleasure craft, large fish and cetaceans.
