Sonardyne, NDI to Provide Maritime Security in USA

Sonardyne International Ltd, UK, has entered into a non-exclusive agreement with Northern Defense Industries (NDI) to become its strategic partner for maritime security and defense projects in the USA.

Under the terms of the new agreement, Sonardyne and NDI will deliver systems that offer underwater surveillance and security capability to help protect high value marine assets. These systems will include Sonardyne’s swimmer detection sonar, Sentinel, obstacle avoidance sonar, NOAS and other related acoustic technologies, the company informed.

Sentinel is able to detect, track and classify underwater targets approaching a protected facility or vessel at long range and from any direction.

Complementing the capabilities offered by Sentinel is NOAS, a sonar developed by Sonardyne for both ships and manned underwater vehicles. NOAS maps in high definition the seabed ahead of a vessel enabling potentially hazardous underwater obstacles to be detected, Sonardyne explained.

Commenting on this new partnership, Andrew Wood, Sonardyne’s Sales Manager for Maritime Security in North America said, “NDI’s impressive track record in delivering integrated security projects and support to defense and Homeland Security users across North America made them the obvious choice for us to partner with.” He went on to say, “NDI has extensive experience working with Sentinel which serves as a strong platform for us to continue building for the future here in the USA.”

Andy Meecham, Chief Technology Officer for NDI and AMS Group commented, “A key part of NDI’s business is providing maritime security and domain awareness solutions for ports, harbors and critical infrastructure facilities – both domestically and worldwide. We are thrilled to have entered into this agreement with Sonardyne. We are now able to better leverage our globally recognized in-house underwater acoustics expertise with Sonardyne’s world-leaNDIding technology, further strengthening our portfolio of best-of-breed sensors. This will ensure that the quality solutions NDI designs, installs and supports remain some of the most effective and complete in the world.”
