Atlas Elektronik UK (AEUK) has secured two contracts with undisclosed Middle and Far Eastern naval customers for the supply of its Cerberus diver detection sonar (DDS) systems.
The first contract is for the follow-on sale of a number of sonars to be utilized in the expansion of a naval harbor protection system and will feature AEUK’s fully integrated multi-sonar software which allows the simultaneous operation of multiple sonars, the company said.
The second contract is with a Middle Eastern navy, for which the system was delivered from stock within 4 weeks to satisfy their urgent operational requirement (UOR).
Cerberus is designed to detect and classify open and closed circuit divers, swimmers, swimmer delivery vehicles and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs).
Dr Antoni Mazur, managing director of AEUK said, “This year has seen an unprecedented amount of interest in our DDS system and I am really pleased that we have secured follow-on sales as it shows our customers are satisfied with our product and service.”
