DSIT Solutions has signed a contract with Tata Power Strategic Engineering Division (SED) to jointly supply 78 PointShield Portable Diver Detection Sonar (PDDS) units to the Indian Navy, the company announced on 8 January. Neptune Sonar will be manufacturing a number of Array’s and supporting the ‘Buy Make India’ programme.
PointShield underwater security systems support the automatic detection, tracking and classification of all types of underwater threats.
Babcock has awarded Neptune Sonar a contract for the refurbishment of the S2054 Intercept Arrays for Vanguard Class (Trident) Submarine.
Neptune have been awarded a large contract to develop an acoustic unit and the front-end electronics for a ‘NEW’ torpedo decoy system. Development starts April 2017, production to commence October 2017 following trials and acceptance testing in September. The front end electronics will use the latest state of the art technology in electronics design.
Neptune has been awarded a contract to develop an Acoustic Detection System for the Scottish fish farm market by Ace Aquatec. The solution proposed is an active sonar, with the ability to detect the movement of a target from its reflection of an acoustic signal. Neptune currently supply a number of acoustic products to Ace Aquatec for deterring problem Seals for fish farms.
Celebrating 25 years in the Underwater Acoustic Industry at another successful show. Congratulations to the 3 winners of our Whisky Draw!

Neptune are to start production supply of Broad-Band Projectors and Receivers for Rafael’s Torbuster hard kill fourth generation submarine countermeasure. This follows an extensive development program to perfect the acoustic performance of both transmit and receive modules.
Neptune Sonar are celebrating our 25th year in the design and supply of underwater acoustic transducers, we thank all our customers for their continued support over the years!
Our new design office is now built and operational. Our Technical Director, Mechanical Engineer, Electronics Engineer, Software Engineer and Production Planner have moved into this open-plan space where projects are to be developed with greater efficiency and communication. This is the first completed department of the new laboratory building, and we plan to have the remaining areas up and running step-by step in order to support our continuous growth. Having recently expanded to include electronics and software engineers, we are now in a position to offer bespoke electronics and software design to complement our existing transducer designs. This has the potential to greatly simplify the electronic interface to our transducers and provide the best possible solutions for our customers.
ITER Systems have contracted Neptune Sonar to re-develop its swath electronics and array technology, Neptune have designed bottom end data acquisition board and transmit power amplifier as well as arrays which now incorporate a signal conditioning board within the array module.
We are pleased to announce that Neil Dearing has been promoted to Technical Director and secured a position on the board at Neptune Sonar.
