GuardPoint TM
Diver Detection Sonar

GuardPoint™ Diver Detection Sonar System is a powerful surveillance sonar effective in detecting underwater intruders including Open-Circuit and Closed-Circuit Divers, Diver / Swimmer Delivery Vehicles (DDV or SDV) and Submersibles. One single GuardPoint sonar head offers a coverage range up to 1000m.

GuardPoint is designed to detect difficult targets in the toughest environments, while remaining an easy to use system for professionals as well as non-sonar operators. Multiple sonar heads can be networked together to achieve an expanded detection area. 

Long Range Surveillance with State-of-the-Art Sonar Head

NORBIT GuardPoint relies on a sophisticated, yet user-friendly tracking and classification software which can identify and follow multiple threats simultaneously while minimizing false positives. Among the information provided by the GuardPoint software: type of threat (e.g. close circuit diver, open circuit diver, etc..), bearing, range, speed and course of the threat, position of the threat and time to asset.

Applications: LNG and Oil Terminals, Power Plants, Naval Bases, Commercial Ships, Naval Units, Offshore Rigs, Mega Yachts, Cruise Ships.

Obstacle Avoidance Sonar

SafePoint is designed to detect navigational obstacles at long range with an easy to use software designed for professionals as well as non-sonar operators. One single SafePoint Sonar Heads offers an underwater protection range of up to 1600m.

SafePoint is particularly suitable for on-ship installations with technologies such as own-doppler nullification and environmentally friendly features such as the possibility to reduce power in presence of marine mammals.

Applications: Cruise Ships, Naval Units, Ice Breakers, Mega Yachts.

Obstacle Avoidance for Safe Navigation

Sonar Performance Prediction Software

NORTrace sonar performance prediction software computes the sonar signal propagation underwater with given parameters. Calculation and Computation Engine is based on Ray Theory with validated Noise, Sonar, Target and Environment models. It is applicable to estimate the performance of a variety of sonar systems such as ASW sonar, Mine Detection and Classification Sonar, Diver Detection Sonar.

Applications: Parameter Optimization of Sonar Settings, Performance Evaluation of Sonar Systems, Sonar Coverage Analysis, Tactical Training, Tactical Decision Aid, Research and Development.
