Wavefront is a leading developer of advanced sonar systems designed to solve the problems of underwater detection, imaging and navigation for commercial and government customers alike.

Our proven side-scan and forward-looking sonar solutions are used to deliver high-resolution imagery and illuminate underwater environments around the world, and our intruder detection sonar technology has been deployed for protection of a wide variety of critical infrastructure and assets, including civilian and military ports and harbours, private and commercial yachts and vessels, and waterside installations and buildings.

Sentinel IDS

Intruder detection sonar with advanced detection, tracking and classification capabilities

underwater threat detection

Sentinel IDS provides automatic detection, tracking and classification of a wide range of underwater threats, including divers, swimmer delivery vehicles, and unmanned drones. Utilizing our cutting-edge Simultaneous In-band Active and Passive Sonar (SInAPS) technology, it provides robust protection capabilities at ranges of up to 1500 metres.
Sentinel IDS Intruder detection sonar
The highly scalable system allows multiple sonar heads to be networked together to provide wide-area protection, maintaining a single track for a common operating picture. Sentinel IDS can be provided in a wide range of mobile or fixed form factors, including cable deployments, fixed brackets, and seabed frames and stands.

Sentry IMS

Integrity monitoring sonar for critical underwater assets

Sentry IMS is designed to provide fast automated warning of containment issues connected to subsea oil and gas installations and equipment, and is able to monitor over a billion cubic feet of seawater in a 360° envelope around a single sensor. The active sonar system can detect the smallest of leaks at ranges exceeding 500 meters, and delivers position data to remote monitoring stations.Sentry IMS Integrity Monitoring SonarSentry is available in two configurations – a lander-mounted version that connects to existing seafloor communications infrastructure and power supply, and a standalone battery-operated system that transmits data via an acoustic modem.
