MASS MULTIROLE ACOUSTIC STABILIZED SYSTEM
This device, already installed on board the Italian Navy Horizon Class Ships, allows long distance (up to 3000 meters) of extremely loud audio messages with a very narrow beam.
The device has been designed for various purposes from ship self-defence and anti-piracy to rescue and survival operations.
It is equipped with a zoom camera (daylight and/or IR), that allows the operator to follow and record the target actions and with an extremely powerful search light usable to illuminate the target or disturbing it when used in stroboscopic mode.
As further deterrent the unit is equipped with a laser dazzler the function of which is to temporarily blind people on board a non authorized boat approaching the ship too closely.
The MASS is also equipped with a video tracker and a stabilized pedestal that allows to keep the target pointed during the ship navigation.
