The Japan Maritime Self Defence Force (JMSDF) has awarded a major contract for the supply of a number of USBL tracking systems and associated equipment.
Following sea trials in Japan and a competitive tender process, JMSDF took the decision to invest in seven of Alpha Portable USBL systems, after witnessing and accepting the key criteria of tracking stability, portability and ease of use. Predominantly intended for use with their naval search and rescue dive teams, JMSDF have also specified 210 Micro/Remote transponders as the ideal beacon to attach to its divers.
The contract award, issued in conjunction with Toyo Corporation, reaffirms the company’s position as a leading manufacturer of subsea acoustic systems for commercial and military applications.
Sales Manager Gavin Willoughby commented, “This is a hugely significant order for our company which demonstrates our capability and enhances our reputation as a major supplier to the defence industry. We are extremely proud to add JMSDF to our portfolio of high profile clients”.
