The two Harbour Defence Systems would enhance the Navy's surveillance capability and response to security threats.

About the Defence Systems:
Integrated Underwater Harbour Defence and Surveillance System (IUHDSS): It is a multi-sensor system that can detect, identify, track and generate warnings for all types of surface and underwater threats to Vizag harbor.
Mine Warfare Data Centre (MWDC): It collates, analyses and classifies the data collected by the Navy's Mine Hunting Ships from various ports along the east coast. This will be the nodal centre for maintaining an underwater information database of harbours along the east coast.
