Middle and Far Eastern Harbour Security In the past two months, Atlas Elektronik UK (AEUK) has secured two significant contracts with undisclosed Middle and Far Eastern naval customers for the supply of its CERBERUS diver detection sonar (DDS) system. The first contract is for the follow-on sale of a number of sonars to be utilised in the expansion of a naval harbour protection system and will feature AEUK’s fully integrated multi-sonar software. It allows the simultaneous operation of multiple sonars. The second contract is with a Middle Eastern Navy who has chosen CERBERUS for its ability to be operated in a very challenging sonar environment, as well as full military qualification for installation on navy vessels. The system was delivered from stock within four weeks to satisfy the customer’s Urgent Operational Requirement (UOR). The system, which is qualified for military use, is provided in a lightweight, rapidly and easily deployable package and is capable of being operated from ships or as part of a fixed harbour installation. CERBERUS is in service with eight nations. “This year has seen an unprecedented amount of interest in our DDS system and I am really pleased that we have secured follow-on sales as it shows our customers are satisfied with our product and service,” AEUK’s Managing Director Dr. Antoni Mazur said.
