Israeli company DSIT Solutions has signed a contract to supply of its Bow Mounted Sonar (BMS) system to the Navy of an undisclosed country in Asia. DSIT’s Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) systems include a variety of solutions that can be installed on frigates and offshore patrol vessels (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.

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 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.

“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,” said Hanan Marom, DSIT’s VP Business Development and Marketing. “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.”
