L-3 Klein Wins Port Security Deal

Wednesday, June 18, 2008


L-3 Klein Associates, Inc. received an order from the Los Angeles Harbor Department for multiple L-3 Klein System 5500 dynamically focused Multi-Beam Side Scan Sonar Systems.  Harbor and Port Security professionals with the use of dual L-3 Klein Side Scan Sonar Systems are able to identify potential underwater threats, such as Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), to commercial shipping. 


Captain Michael Graychik of the Los Angeles Port Police said, “We are excited to be one of the first civilian Law Enforcement agencies to use this technology.  This capability will help us to mitigate threats to the port in a very timely manner as well the integration of data sharing with military Mine Counter Measure operations.”

L-3 Klein is pleased to have our high resolution; Side Scan Sonar's play a role in Harbor and Port Security.  We believe that the movement of goods through our Ports is critical to our economic viability and any underwater threat would damage this.   Cities and States are becoming more aware of possible underwater threats and are responding to this issue by utilizing Klein Side Scan Sonar's with excellent underwater imaging.
