IAI com­pletes Port Se­cu­rity and De­fence Project in In­dia

SP's MAI - - MILITARY | UPDATES -

Is­rael Aerospace In­dus­tries (IAI) has de­vel­oped and de­liv­ered com­pre­hen­sive se­cu­rity and pro­tec­tion sys­tems, known as the In­te­grated

Un­der­wa­ter Har­bour

De­fence and Sur­veil­lance

Sys­tem (IUHDSS). The

In­dian Navy, tasked with de­fend­ing the sub­con­ti­nent’s 7,516-kilo­me­tres-long coast­line, had raised the need for such sys­tems. De­vel­oped by IAI sub­sidiary, Elta Sys­tems, IUHDSS com­prises sur­veil­lance, ob­ser­va­tion, sur­face and un­der­wa­ter sens­ing ar­rays that can de­tect, lo­cate, and track var­i­ous threats — whether from small boats and sub­mersibles, swim­mer de­liv­ery ve­hi­cles (SDV), swim­mers or divers.

IUHDSS is a mo­du­lar sys­tem, tai­lor made to meet spe­cific cus­tomer needs. The sys­tem in­cludes an ad­vanced com­mand and con­trol sys­tem, a range of 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, IAI Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent & Elta Pres­i­dent 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”.
