SonarBell® Mine Imitation Target System (SMITS)

Due to increasing pressure on military budgets the efficiency and effectiveness of the training provided to personnel is crucial.

SonarBell® units can be manipulated by SALT Ltd to deliver highly accurate sea-mine like sonar echo structures in a physical format which is easy to handle in a practical marine environment.

Using SonarBell® in this way provides:

  • Realistic target structures for deployment during training and work-up for either a standard range of target types or mission specific threats.
  • Physical formats which are easier to deploy and recover than steel or concrete equivalents. This enhances deployability in regions of differing sea-bed and widens the training environment that can be used.
  • A target profile which can be adjusted to provide varying levels of realism with the potential to deliver unique target structures to meet customer requirements.
