dsIT Solutions Ltd. (dsIT) has announced that it has received an order from NAFTOPORT Liquid Fuels Loading Company Ltd (Poland), a leading European oil terminal operator, for a Diver Detection Sonar (DDS) system. Naftoport operates an oil terminal and conducts reloading of crude oil at the Gdansk port. The company has a key role in supplying crude oil to Polish and German refineries and in exporting Russian crude oil around the world.

The dsIT DDS is a state-of-the-art underwater surveillance system. It supports automatic detection, tracking and classification of any moving underwater body or object. The DDS will monitor the waters surrounding Naftoport's terminal in order to detect underwater intrusion and prevent sabotage.

dsIT's DDS system operates in all weather and water conditions. Its long range of detection, for even the smallest targets, provides ample warning time, making effective response possible. The system can be operated in stand-alone mode, or as part of a comprehensive integrated above and below water security system.

According to Dan Ben-Dov, dsIT's VP for Sales and Marketing, this order for an underwater surveillance system indicates a breakthrough in conventional security perceptions by recognizing the necessity for underwater as well as above-water protection.

"As far as we know, this will be the first system in the world designed and operated to protect a strategic coastal energy installation. This cutting edge project coincides with dsIT's vision to be the world leader in providing underwater security systems for the energy industry as well as commercial ports, and navies.

dsIT will be exhibiting its sonar technology capabilities at the upcoming Undersea Defence Technology (UDT) Conference and Exhibition in Naples, Italy during the week of June 4th. dsIT will be sharing a booth at the exhibition with RAFAEL Armament Development Authority Ltd. (RAFAEL) reflecting the longstanding technical and marketing co-operation between dsIT and RAFAEL."

John A. Moore, the CEO of Acorn Factor commented, "this groundbreaking contract award corresponds with the vision of Acorn Factor to focus on the energy sector and provide security solutions to protect energy infrastructure. Following the recent successful public offering at an initial value of $315 million of our Comverge affiliate (Nasdaq:COMV), which provides protection for the energy grid, we see dsIT following in its footsteps to provide protection to another area of the energy industry."

Canadian Oil Sands Development An Economic Boon But Leaves A Mess
Fort Mcmurray (AFP) Canada, June 22, 2007
The development of Canada's oil sands is laying waste to its great northern forest and western plains, say critics who point to skyrocketing greenhouse gas emissions, diverted rivers and razed backwoods. And the devastation can only get worse, they say, as energy companies pump billions of dollars into new projects to triple local oil production to some 3.0 million barrels per day within the next decade.
