GIVAT SHMUEL, Israel, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- DSIT of Israel has received multiple honors for its submarine tactical trainer.

The STT simulator provides a full representation of the spectrum of submarine weapon systems, sonar sensors and command-and-control application used on the Israeli navy's Dolphin submarines.

"The high level of realism, technology and precision displayed in all of the STT modules are chief among the many features that have led to its recognition by so many important sources," said Dan Ben-Dov, DSIT's vice president of sales and marketing.

"We believe that this level of recognition provides a strong message to navies and fleets around the world that may be looking to procure similar systems or derivatives of this simulator.

"Our sonar simulators represent one branch of a growing family of advanced sonar and acoustic projects that DSIT has completed for the Israeli navy, including the supply of a Portable Deep Water Acoustic Range, Hull Mounted Sonar system and others."

DSIT completed an $8 million project several months ago and since then the simulator has been operating around the clock to train submarine crews.

Satisfaction with the simulator has made it an integral part of the navy's training for all levels of tactical submarine operators and led to its recognition by various prestigious bodies.

The Israeli military's Communications and Computer Corps awarded DSIT's Submarine Simulator Project with its 2011 "Prize for Excellence and Creative Thinking." The company also received the highly valued "Chief Naval Officer Award" given by the commander of the navy.

In addition, the professional journal "People and Computers," which conducts a yearly competition for special projects, has recognized DSIT's project for its technological excellence.
