DSIT, a leading developer and manufacturer of advanced maritime defense and security solutions, recently unveiled its KnightShield mobile underwater security system. The system supports task force underwater protection, simultaneously protecting multiple vessels anchored in ports, harbor entrances and designated areas of harbor basins against swimmers, UAVs, SDVs and sabotage attempts.
Based on the sophisticated technology implemented in PointShield, DSIT’s advanced diver detection sonar systems (DDS), KnightShield covers medium ranges in port, providing much-needed reliability and accuracy. Providing fully automatic detection, tracking, classification and alerts for underwater intrusions, smugglers and sabotage attempts, the system detects hostile divers – whether using closed or open breathing apparatus – as well as AUV, SDV, DPV and UUV.
Housed in a 20ft ISO container, KnightShield is easily transported as needed between hubs and dock locations such as ports, harbors and terminals. Designed for use when deploying expeditionary forces and increased threat levels, the solution can be easily stored when not needed.
According to Mr. Hanan Marom, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at DSIT, “The growing sophistication of maritime threats and smuggling has made the underwater protection of ports and ships anchored in ports more critical. We believe the advanced KnightShield system – simultaneously managing up to 500 contacts in all weather and sea conditions and providing early detection and precise threat locations for even the weakest targets – provides peacetime flexibility and security. ‘escalation, ensuring effective and optimal protection of critical assets and vessels in ports, terminals, port entrances and designated areas of port basins’.
