Hydroacoustics (HAI) will display its diver interdiction system (DIS) at the MAST Europe Defense Conference.

The DIS neutralizes the threat posed by an underwater swimmer on a mission of destruction. The DIS uses non-lethal air gun technology to force a terrorist diver that may be attacking high value underwater assets to the surface. The DIS is a great compliment to diver detection systems (DDS) in that it adds a deterrent layer to help round out a defense system.

Diver interdiction systems are available in both stationary as well as mobile configurations. We have added encrypted radio frequency (RF) communications for remote firing as well as underwater loudhailer capabilities as a first level deterrent.

MAST Europe will take place at the Palazzo dei Congressi, Rome, Italy on 9-11 November 2010. Hydroacoustics can be found at booth#97A.
