Sonardyne Bags Sentinel Intruder Sonar Order

Sonardyne International’s underwater intruder detection technology has been selected to secure the coastal perimeter of a critical national energy infrastructure (CNI) facility in Eastern Europe. 

The Sentinel Intruder Detection Sonar (IDS) will be deployed to detect unauthorized divers and subsurface vehicles approaching the facility from the water.

The installation, at an undisclosed location, is the first phase of a site-wide project led by MARSS Group to enhance security at the facility with their NiDAR long-range air, land and underwater situational awareness system.

Suitable for fixed, temporary and vessel installation, Sentinel detects, tracks and classifies underwater threats at up to 1.5 km range to provide a rapidly deployable perimeter intrusion capability to help safeguard commercial harbours, naval vessels, private yachts, and waterside residences, as well as critical national infrastructure, Sonardyne explained.

Rob Balloch, VP of Sales at MARSS said, “This is our latest project with the team at Sonardyne to incorporate Sentinel into one of our NiDAR surveillance installations. Designed specifically for ease of use by security personnel and to meet the practical requirements of everyday use, for our client, Sentinel was the only IDS that fully met their needs.”

Ioseba Tena, global business manager at Sonardyne said, “The recent attacks on oil tankers at sea, once again highlights the relative ease with which waterborne attacks can be carried out on strategic energy assets and facilities. With more than 150 installations worldwide, Sentinel’s track record speaks for itself and we’re confident that the level of protection the combined NiDAR-Sentinel solution will deliver the surveillance capability needed to safeguard this important facility.”
