Means to ensure security of port infrastructures under water



Numerous are the tools that configure security and protection systems for port infrastructures. At the same time, very few are the tools that have been developed in the Republic of Bulgaria and are being implemented in a number of countries around the world. This report presents tools / systems that provide security for the outer perimeter / outer boundary of the port security system and those that provide “internal” security to the internal perimeter of port infrastructures. These are the hydro-acoustic system developed by Hi-Tech IMS Ltd. for providing the so-called “Outer” security and underwater robot “ARMUS”, providing the so-called “Internal” security of the underwater security systems of port infrastructures. Both systems are exceptional developments in the company and could successfully secure underwater security at the seaside. Both systems are new to Bulgaria, and the underwater robot has no analogue in the world with its features.
