Indian Navy orders PointShield PDDS

10th January 2018 - 07:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


DSIT Solutions has signed a contract with Tata Power Strategic Engineering Division (SED) to jointly supply 78 PointShield Portable Diver Detection Sonar (PDDS) units to the Indian Navy, the company announced on 8 January.

The companies were selected by the Indian Ministry of Defense after a tender process, which included sea trials and technical evaluation.

In compliance with the Indian government’s ‘Buy Make India’ programme, some of the PDDS will be delivered by DSIT directly while the rest will be manufactured by Tata Power SED in India under DSIT's supervision.

PointShield underwater security systems support the automatic detection, tracking and classification of all types of underwater threats.

Dan Ben Dov, vice president for sales and marketing, DSIT, said: ‘This significant order... shows the growing concern among navies, coastguards and other organisations, seeking to protect their coastal and offshore critical sites and vessels from underwater intrusion and sabotage.’
