DSIT Wins Contract to Supply its Bow Mounted Sonar (BMS) System to a Well-Respected Navy in Asia

The BMS system, recently launched, is designed for installation on Frigates and OPVs, and provides cost-effective ASW capabilities

DSIT Solutions Ltd. – a pioneer and world leader in underwater defense and security solutions based on advanced fiber-optic sensing, sonar and acoustics technologies for naval, homeland security, energy, and transportation applications – signed a contract with a well-respected Navy for the supply of its Bow Mounted Sonar (BMS) protection system against submarines. DSIT's Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) systems include a variety of solutions which are perfectly suited for installation on Frigates and OPVs as well as in ports and harbors.

The undisclosed Navy is a DSIT customer to whom the company has previously supplied other systems including the Hull Mounted Sonar (HMS) and an Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Trainer. The newly purchased BMS systems as well as the company's HMS are state-of-the-art ASW sonar systems for Frigates and OPVs.

These sonar systems present exceptional reliability and increase the ship’s efficiency due to advanced ASW capabilities, extremely high detection and tracking ranges, reduced maintenance costs and operability at high capability levels. This order is one of many that were recently completed around the world.

DSIT’s BMS is a medium frequency sonar system for use in ASW operations in both littoral and deep waters. The high-performance sonar system provides unmatched advanced acoustic signal processing and is focused on the detection and tracking of weak targets in highly cluttered acoustic environments.

The sonar system requires only a single operator and provides wide coverage and protection against multiple underwater threats including incoming torpedoes. According to Mr. Hanan Marom, DSIT’s VP Business Development and Marketing, “Due to their full satisfaction with our HMS systems and ASW Sonar Trainer systems, this leading navy now returns to us to extend its modernization process. We look forward to continuing our fruitful cooperation with this professional and advanced navy.”

Mr. Marom continued: “DSIT’s systems are based on sophisticated, breakthrough technologies that excel in performance, reliability, and quality ? enabling customers to implement advanced ASW capabilities over many years. We are pleased that our customers are fully satisfied with our solutions, and continue upgrading their naval forces with DSIT's systems ? expanding their submarine warfare readiness spectrum.”
