UNDERWATER HARBOUR DEFENCE,SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM LAUNCHED

IANS | Feb 4, 2017, 01.56 AM IST

An Israeli-designed Integrated Under Water Harbour Defence and Surveillance System (IUHDSS) for the Indian Navy was inaugurated by Western Naval Command chief, Vice Admiral Girish Luthra on Friday.

Luthra said that the IUHDSS will enhance the security of valuable naval assets against asymmetric threats, both on surface and subface (underwater). Termed as "a significant step in strengthening Harbour Defence and Security", the IUHDSS is a system designed and developed by Israeli Aerospace Industries ELTA for surface and sub-surface surveillance of the harbour.

Its sensors have been strategically installed around the Mumbai Naval Harbour to provide comprehensive real-time situational awareness for monitoring and analyses. Besides detecting large targets, it can also detect small targets like boats, divers and swimmers at adequate ranges. The system will boost the security in and around Mumbai where 10 Pakistani terrorists had sneaked in via the Arabian Sea route and wreaked havoc during the November 26, 2008 terror strikes.

it's for both underwater and surface threats, it's a system which has surface as well as underwater sensors.
