Our extensive range of products utilized in the defense sector includes:

Diver Mounted Display (DMD)

Enhanced for zero visibility conditions, the Tritech Diver Mounted Display (DMD) system empowers divers with superior navigation capabilities and efficient inspection capabilities.


Micron Gemini

With greatly improved image quality, a 90 horizontal field of view, and a 50m range, the Micron Gemini offers cost-effective obstacle avoidance and navigation for small ROVs and AUVs.


Gemini 1200ik

The Gemini 1200ik is a powerful addition to the renowned Gemini range of sonar systems. It offers two operational frequencies, allowing users to switch between low and high frequencies depending on their requirements.


Gemini 720ik 360°

Introducing the Gemini 720ik 360°, a custom engineering project that leverages the renowned technology of the Tritech Gemini 720ik multibeam imaging sonar. This fully integrated underwater monitoring system provides a comprehensive and budget-friendly solution for a wide range of applications.


Diver Mounted Display (DMD)

In 2020, Tritech introduced the revolutionary Diver Mounted Display (DMD), a groundbreaking system designed to enhance diver capabilities in zero visibility environments. The DMD empowers divers with target recognition, safe navigation, and close inspection capabilities, all in real time. Leveraging advanced multibeam imaging sonar technology, the system mounts at head height and projects the sonar image directly into a monocle covering the diver’s non-dominant eye.

The Gemini range of multibeam imaging sonars provides unparalleled flexibility, allowing divers to choose the most suitable sonar for their specific operation. For basic navigation needs, the Micron Gemini delivers reliable performance. For operations requiring higher resolution, divers can opt for the Gemini 720ik or Gemini 1200ik, both offering exceptional range, resolution, and field of view. These high-specification multibeam imaging sonars instill divers with confidence and significantly enhance efficiency during zero visibility operations, surpassing the limitations of relying solely on search patterns.

The Diver Mounted Display is available in two configurations: Tethered (DMD-T) and Untethered (DMD-U). The tethered system is primarily designed for surface air dive systems, where the diver remains connected to the surface via supplied tether and the support team maintains control of the sonar operation.

In contrast, the untethered system (DMD-U) allows the diver to operate independently, with full control over the sonar operation. This configuration is particularly advantageous for covert operations or environments where the presence of a tether cord could pose potential hazards, such as the risk of snagging.

Experience the cutting-edge capabilities of the Diver Mounted Display, revolutionizing diver operations in zero visibility conditions. With its advanced technology and versatile configurations, Tritech’s DMD sets a new standard for underwater situational awareness in the defense sector.
