Israel Aerospace Industries has completed and delivered its Integrated Underwater Harbor Defense and Surveillance System project for India's navy.
The project, also known as IUHDSS, is designed to provide India with enhanced surveillance and patrol capabilities to protect the country's 4,670-mile coastline.
The solution was developed by IAI subsidiary Elta Systems, and includes underwater sensing arrays capable of detecting and locating maritime threats such as small boats, swimmer delivery vehicles, submersibles, swimmers and divers.
IUHDSS is operated using a command-and-control system, which manages coastal surveillance radars, electro-optical sensors and automatic threat identification systems.
Israel Aerospace Industries says similar systems are already securing other ports in the country.
"We are proud to deliver another project to India, our strategic partner," IAI executive vice president Nissim Hadas said in a press release. "Many of IAI's systems play a role in India's maritime and coastal defense. 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."
