The WG Enforcer – Underwater Communication & Diver Disruption System is an acoustic marine communication application that is designed to work in conjunction with other diver detection systems such as sonar etc.
It is both an underwater communications system, and a high powered acoustic disruption system which can be used to ‘warn off’ or if necessary, ‘disrupt’ any unauthorised divers detected approaching or in a restricted area.
Diver(s) detected by sonar or other means
– Initial warning – The Enforcer system is used to by the operator to communicate with the diver(s) approaching a restricted area, either by the use of a microphone or automatically by pre-recorded security announcements.
If the Diver(s) continue to approach restricted area
– 2nd warning – The Enforcer system is used by the operator to broadcast a loud warning siren sound. This is then followed by a warning message from the operator either by the use of a microphone or automatically by pre-recorded security announcements.
If the Diver(s) continues to approach restricted area
– The operator activates the Enforcer system to broadcast disruptive frequencies.
Disruptive frequencies – The Enforcer system is programmed with three levels of high powered disruptive frequencies, these are sent to the speaker array sets, which broadcast powerful ‘disruption’ signals in to the water.
The frequencies are designed to have a maximum disorientation effect on the diver, which are likely induce a sense of discomfort or panic causing them to leave the area or surface for interception.
The WG Enforcer system can be deployed as a permanent installation for the protection of coastal and maritime facilities or supplied in a rapid deployment version for the temporary protection of shipping whilst anchored etc.
Installation – Under water permanent installations, each of the two speaker arrays are suspended from a flotation buoys, the flotation buoys are anchored to the sea bottom or a sonar system. For over the side ship rapid deployment the speaker arrays are suspended from the ships side.
