Russian underwater warfare specialist JSC Concern 'Sea Underwater Weapon - Gidropribor' displayed its Mayak-2014 target detection sonar for the first time at the 2017 International Maritime Defence Show (IMDS) in St Petersburg.
"Mayak-2014 is a solution that provides automated detection and tracking of divers, small underwater vehicles and other small, silent threats within an area," the manufacturer told Jane's at IMDS 2017.
