Klein Marine Systems, Inc. is the world’s leading supplier of side scan sonar equipment and waterside security and surveillance systems. In 1967, Marty Klein, an MIT graduate, set his own course in the new commercial field of Side Scan Sonar. This was a bold move since the only companies involved in this area were multi-million dollar organizations. Klein’s aim is one of creating reliable, leading-edge sonar products, and maritime domain awareness systems while offering top quality service. Klein has developed a worldwide reputation of excellence in the industry by providing quality products and excellent customer service.
Klein’s business is structured into two segments:
Klein’s side scan sonar systems are respected as the standard of excellence in the industry and are deployed by governments, navies, port authorities, surveyors, oil companies and universities worldwide. Klein’s sonar systems and derivatives have been used to locate the Titanic, wreckage of the U.S. Space Shuttle Challenger, downed aircraft, including TWA Flight 800, Swiss Air Flight 111, John F. Kennedy Jr.’s plane and Egypt Air Flight 990, a myriad of underwater antiquities, as well as performing the day-to-day work of hydrographic surveys. Klein employs an experienced staff of technical personnel, familiar with the ocean environment that are ready to serve your needs. The high-resolution Klein sonar systems, designed and manufactured in our 60,000 square foot plant in New Hampshire, provide high-speed, full bottom coverage with imagery unmatched in the industry.
Klein has designed, developed, manufactures and supports the HarborGuard Integrated Waterside Security and Surveillance System which combines radar, infrared and daytime video surveillance technology to provide all-weather, day/night security coverage over and under water areas. The HarborGuard System is currently deployed by the U.S. Navy for protection of base facilities, local governments for bridge, port / harbor and critical infrastructure security, and commercial companies for oil drilling rig and critical asset protection. The HarborGuard System is designed to deter, detect and deny intrusive small targets on the water.
