03 July 2017

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.

The system comprises a remote sonar station operating in passive mode, and it can mount up to four antennas with a horizontal coverage of 90° each. The acoustic signal detected by the sonar is sent through a connected cable to a data processing device for classification, and is then made available to an on-shore operator.
