Sonardyne International Ltd has added a new diver interception tool to the capabilities of its Sentinel Intruder Detection Sonar (IDS). The handheld Bearing and Range to Target (BARTT) mobile phone application can be used to provide security boat crews with guidance to the position of an underwater intruder being tracked by the Sentinel system. Information is supplied to the crew via simple, clear graphical and textual displays on a large touch-screen smart phone. The data is provided via a GPRS connection with the Sentinel command workstation and so provides a vital link to ensure that once detected, intruders can be deterred or apprehended.
