VISAKHAPATNAM (PTI): Two Harbour Defence Systems - Integrated Underwater Harbour Defence and Surveillance System (IUHDSS) and Mine Warfare Data Centre (MWDC) - which would enhance the Indian Navy's surveillance capability and response to security threats were inaugurated here.

The Systems were inaugurated by Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Eastern Naval Command Vice Admiral HCS Bisht, at the Naval Dockyard, a Defence release said on Tuesday.

The IUHDSS is a multi-sensor system capable of detecting, identifying, tracking and generating warnings for all types of surface and underwater threats to Vizag harbour, it added.

According to the release, creation of the Sagar Prahari Bal, induction of Fast Interceptor Crafts (FICs) and commissioning of the IUHDSS are some of the Navy's measures to strengthen security.

The MWDC will collate, analyse and classify data collected by the Navy's Mine Hunting Ships from various ports along the east coast and this facility will be the nodal centre for maintaining an underwater information database of harbours along the east coast.

Both the IUHDSS and MWDC will function under the control of the Naval Officer-in-Charge (Andhra Pradesh) Commodore Sanjiv Issar, it added.
