Kochi gets India’s first harbour defence system


  • The naval harbor in Kochi has become the first in India to get a top-notch defence system — which will enable operators to foresee, and respond to, surface and sub-surface threats to vital assets along the harbor and warships in the quay.
  • Integrated Underwater Harbour Defence and Surveillance System, a state-of-the-art automated system, was commissioned by Vice-Admiral Sunil Lanba, Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief of the Southern Naval Command.
  • The system, comprising a cluster of coastal surveillance radars, high-power underwater sensors and diver detection sonars, was designed by Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI) ELTA.
