Most countries rely heavily on uninterrupted and safe marine traffic. As the on-going race between stealth, CIWSs and the new generation of hypersonic missiles intensifies, these often expensive weapon systems require active monitoring and situational awareness on vast border areas. While this is feasible in more condensed key areas, it is not the only option to guard and protect large coastal areas. 

We show, how you can both maximize the capability of your current inventory, how our new generation of TURSO naval mines perform and how these modern systems integrate into today’s and tomorrow’s complex naval warfare domain.
