Through our relationship with DSIT Solutions, eCastle can provide a range of deployable and permanent Underwater Security systems that offer fully automatic Diver Detection Sonars for the protection of valuable coastal and offshore sites.
DSIT’s fixed and portable systems provide the most advanced underwater security solutions available. Systems are tailored for port security, terminal protection, platform security, ship protection and harbor surveillance.
PointShield is a Portable Diver Detection Sonar (PDDS) system for protection of vessels at anchor and ships at berth against underwater threats
PointShiel is lightweight, compact and portable to allow rapid deployment and retrieval, the system can withstand rough waters and long-term continuous underwater operation, making it ideal for permanent installations as well.
The PointShield PDDS supports fully automatic operation – from detection, through tracking to classification and alert – eliminating the need for a trained sonar operator. Its advanced signal processing algorithms ensure the desired combination of very high Probability of Detection (PD) with very low False Alarm Rate (FAR).
The system supports detection of all types of underwater threats including Divers using Rebreathing Apparatus, Scuba Divers, and Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs). It provides Omni-Directional (360°) coverage, creating a security sphere that surrounds the protected object from all sides and covers the entire relevant water column.
AquaShield is a high-performance Diver Detection Sonar (DDS) system. It is designed to provide permanent underwater security for high value coastal and offshore assets such as Naval Bases, Ports, Oil & Gas Terminals, Offshore Platforms, Underwater Pipelines and Cables, Nuclear Power Facilities and canals.
The AquaShield DDS – Diver Detection Sonar that supports long range detection for all types of underwater threats including Divers using Rebreathing Apparatus, Scuba Divers and Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs). The AquaShield™ architecture is modular to allow maximum flexibility in its deployment and installation. The system offers three sector coverage configurations: 120⁰, 240⁰ and 360⁰. All configurations cover the entire relevant water column.
The system supports fully automatic operation – from detection, through tracking to classification and alert – which eliminates the need for a well-trained sonar operator. Its advanced signal processing algorithms ensure the desired combination of very high Probability of Detection (PD) with very low False Alarm Rate (FAR).
AquaShield is designed to be deployed under water for long periods of time with very little maintenance required. It is extremely robust and reliable and can even withstand the detonation of a standard underwater charge (200 gr TNT) at a range of 5 meters
KnightShield simultaneously protects multiple ships anchored at port as well as port entrances and designated areas of port basins – detecting hostile swimmers and sabotage attempts. Housed in a container, the system is easily transported, as and when required, between platforms and dock locations such as harbors, ports and terminals.
Providing fully automatic detection, tracking, classification, and alerts regarding underwater intrusion and sabotage, the system detects hostile divers – whether using closed or open breathing apparatus – as well as AUVs, SDVs, DPVs and UUVs. Covering short- to medium-ranges in ports and shallow waters with exceptional reliability and precision, KnightShield handles up to 500 contacts simultaneously in all weather and sea conditions. Providing precise to location of threats, the system enables a pinpoint response to even the weakest targets, delivering a very low false alarm rate.
