15th February 2017 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has completed delivery of a harbour defence system to the Indian Navy for the Port of Mumbai, the company announced on 13 February.

The Integrated Underwater Harbour Defence and Surveillance System (IUHDSS), developed by IAI subsidiary Elta Systems, comprises surveillance, observation, surface, and underwater sensing arrays that can detect, locate and track various threats including small boats and submersibles, swimmer delivery vehicles, swimmers or divers.

IUHDSS includes an advanced command and control system, coastal surveillance radars, diver-detecting sonars, electro-optical sensors and automatic threat identification systems. The central command and control system provides automatic integration of all sensors, creating a common situational picture for port defence.

Nissim Hadas, executive VP at IAI and president at Elta, said: 'We are proud to deliver another project to India, our strategic partner. Many of IAI's systems play a role in India's maritime and coastal defence. Since becoming operational, this system has proved itself, and we look forward to continuing our long-term strategic cooperation with India for a bright and safe future.'
