GIVAT SHMUEL, Israel, October 22, 2012
DSIT Solutions Ltd., an Acorn Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:ACFN) company announced today the receipt of a new order for its PointShield™ Portable Diver Detection Sonar (PDDS) system. The PointShield™ PDDS is specifically designed to provide underwater protection for navy ships, private yachts and commercial vessels. The PointShield™ may also be operated using a fixed installation.
The Ministry of Defense of one of the world’s largest countries placed the order. The order originated following an evaluation of several competing systems and a tender process. DSIT’s state of the art PointShield™ PDDS was selected based on its operational parameters including detection and classification ranges, system size and portability, fully automatic operation and system robustness.
“We have been experiencing a growing interest in our systems from both governmental and commercial customers,” said Dan Ben-Dov, DSIT’s VP Sales and Marketing, “as those responsible for security of critical maritime assets become more attuned to the threats that abound and the magnitude of the possible damage. This order is of particular importance due to the existing level of sophistication this customer employs in all facets of its security and the large potential for additional orders.”
“Our satisfied customers become our partners,” commented Benny Sela, DSIT’s CEO. “They cooperate by providing DSIT with data for purposes of better system calibration to their own site characteristics and for ongoing overall system improvement. We look forward to adding this important customer to our list of partners.”
