Portable Diver Detection Sonar Order for DSIT

Press Release
Wednesday, March 13, 2013

DSIT, an Acorn Energy Company, secures order for its PointShield™ sonar that provides ship underwater security protection.

Israel-based DSIT's PointShield™ PDDS is specifically designed to provide underwater protection for navy ships, private yachts and commercial vessels. The PointShield™ may also be operated using a fixed installation.

The Ministry of Defense of one of the world’s largest countries placed the order. It originated following an evaluation of several competing systems and a tender process. DSIT's state of the art PointShield™ PDDS was selected based on its operational parameters including detection and classification ranges, system size and portability, fully automatic operation and system robustness.

“We have been experiencing a growing interest in our systems from both governmental and commercial customers,” said Dan Ben-Dov, DSIT’s VP Sales and Marketing, “as those responsible for security of critical maritime assets become more attuned to the threats that abound and the magnitude of the possible damage. This order is of particular importance due to the existing level of sophistication this customer employs in all facets of its security and the large potential for additional orders.”
