The Swedish Defense Material Administration (FMV) selected Shark Marine’s Navigator, diver held sonar and navigation system, as its Diver Documentation and Sensor System (DDSS).

The modularity of the Navigator allows it to be configured to best meet the DDSS requirements of the Swedish Armed Forces, Navy EOD team. The Navigators will be used by the Navy Clearance Divers during search and clearance operations for underwater sea mines, ordnance or other objects, familiar or unfamiliar. The listed requirements also included the capability of the system to be operated by a single diver underwater, directly from shore, or from various small platforms such as RHIB’s.

The use of the Navigators will greatly enhance the divers’ situational awareness, their area coverage rate, and their personal safety by providing them with real time information regarding position, depth and heading, as well as an extended visual range through the use of an imaging sonar. They will be able to traverse pre-programmed routes and way-points on a nautical chart, relying on guidance provided by the Navigators positioning options, while recording sonar imagery along with video and digital photos to be used to verify and identify targets.

The FMV’s decision adds Sweden to the growing list of now more than a dozen of the world’s navies using the Shark Marine Navigator system for Mine Counter Measures (MCM), Very Shallow Water (VSW) applications and Search And Recovery operations (SAR).
