• It has been designed and developed by one of Israel’s leading defence electronics companies, ELTA, a group and subsidiary of Israeli Aerospace Industries.

• It has been developed for surface and sub-surface surveillance of the harbour.

• It is a state of the art system that is equipped with advanced sensors, integrated radars and electro-optic cameras as well as sound navigation and ranging systems (SONARs).

• Its sensors have been placed strategically all around the harbour in Mumbai so that they can provide a complete real-time situation for analysis and monitoring purposes.

• The system is also capable of detecting, identifying, tracking and generating a warning for all types of threats including surface and underwater threats posed to the harbour security.

• It can detect both large and small targets like ships, boats, swimmers and divers at adequate ranges.

According to a defence spokesperson, the system will enhance the security of valuable assets against sudden and unexpected threats and thus strengthen the harbour defence and security at Mumbai.
