DSIT wins contract for Portable Acoustic Range system
Underwater sonar and acoustic specialists DSIT Solutions has won a tender to supply its Portable Acoustic Range (PAR) system to an undisclosed navy, the company announced on 7 November.
The PAR system is an advanced application of underwater signal processing and measures the radiated noise of any vessel, be it surface or sub-surface.
According to DSIT Solutions, this enables navies and shipyards to monitor and control the noise of their submarines and ships, and PAR is capable of tracking the measured platforms and transmitting the data in real time to a remote command and control unit.
‘We are proud of the long-standing cooperation between DSIT Solutions and the purchasing navy and are pleased that the company's solutions ‒ recognised for their state-of-the-art technologies, excellent service and cost levels ‒ continue to meet the navy’s expectations and needs,’ Hanan Marom, DSIT Solutions VP business development and marketing, said.
‘We look forward to continuing this fruitful cooperation for many years to come.’
The PAR operates in a frequency range of 10-50,000Hz and includes a database console for storing measurement results, facilitating data management, as well as for playback and post-analysis capabilities.
