DSIT Solutions, a subsidiary of Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, recently won a tender to supply its Portable Acoustic Range (PAR) system to an undisclosed navy. PAR is an advanced application of underwater signal processing designed to measure noise radiated by submarines and surface vessels.

The PAR system measures the radiated noise of any vessel, on or below the surface, thus enabling navies and shipyards to monitor and control the noise and silence of their submarines and ships. It continuously tracks the measured platforms and transmits the data in real-time to a remote command and control unit. This enables real-time radiated noise processing, analysis, and display, using a wireless LAN Data Link between measurement buoy and measured platform.

The system, which operates in a frequency range of 10-50,000 Hz, includes a database console for storing measurement results, which facilitates data management and provides playback and post-analysis capabilities.

“DSIT Solutions develops and manufactures technologically advanced, easy-to-operate, cost-effective systems. Therefore, we have been able to supply our solutions to a wide range of customers and navies in various regions of the world,” said Hanan Marom, DSIT Solutions VP Business Development and Marketing. “We are dedicated to adapting the company’s solutions to the needs of diverse customers’ needs and missions in the fields of acoustics, sonar, and fiber-optics.”
