Following a demand of the French Navy and French procurement agency (DGA), French company Rtsys developed a unique solution for Special Forces combat divers and EOD divers. French Navy will then equip its units with this innovative portable sonar.

DA-SDA14 assists divers during recognition or object detection missions. The onboard navigation system relies on the several sensors: heading, immersion, DVL (Doppler Velocity Log) and a GPS for surface initialization. Divers have possibility to send message and to share contacts via UW modem. Sonar and navigation data are fully recorded allowing mission replay, data analysis and export. With 6 hours of battery life, the autonomy can be extended by an additional set of battery pack.

One of the main advantages of this product is its 12 inches screen, much larger of its concurrent and specifically designed to be easily used by divers. The DA-SDA14 is fitted with two high resolution acoustic cameras (Blue View 2D Multi-Beam Sonar: 450/45 kHz or 900/2250 kHz), one low light video camera (Divecam-720M Miniature Monochrome CCD), one projector, on gradiometer that can be plugged under the sea and two specific transducers for the pinger’s detection

The DA-SDA14 could be adapted on a Diver propulsion vehicle (DPV) upon customer request. Several navies already showed its interested for this portable sonar, a RTsys International Defence Sales Manager told Navy Recognition during UDT 2015.
