PointShield gains another NATO order

22nd January 2021 - 11:45 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Portable diver detection sonar system protects vessels at anchor and at berth against underwater threats.

An unnamed NATO member state has ordered the PointShield portable diver detection sonar (PDDS) system from DSIT Solutions, the Israeli company announced on 21 January.

PointShield was selected after ‘an extensive and rigorous testing process’, said Hanan Marom, DSIT VP of business development and marketing.

Marom added that about 100 PointShield systems are in use worldwide. Other NATO customers include the Netherlands.

PointShield is a fully automatic, high-performance PDDS for protection of vessels at anchor and ships at berth against underwater threats. It is also suitable for fixed installations where a limited area needs to be covered, Shephard Defence Insight notes.

Sites that may be secured include nuclear power facilities, underwater pipelines and cables, naval bases piers, ports, oil and gas terminals, offshore platforms and canals.
