Sonar and waterside security systems company Klein Marine Systems teamed with Israel-based international defense electronics company Elbit Systems to conduct mine countermeasure exercises in the Mediterranean Sea. The exercises were used by the companies to test their recent products. Klein put its 5900 mine hunting side scan sonar to the test while Elbit tested its new Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV).Klein said the duo detected and classified all detectable moored and bottom Mine Like Objects (MLO’s) during the exercises.During the trials which were conducted in depths of up to 85 m, the 5900 sonar enabled MCM area survey at speeds of 8-9 knots.The company said the 5900 from Klein Marine systems, Inc., is a high resolution, dynamically focused, multi-beam, side scan sonar designed specifically for small object detection with bottom coverage, while being towed at speeds up to 14 knots.According to Klein, the system employs advanced signal processing techniques, motion compensation and acoustic design to provide high-resolution, imagery performance. Remote control software, Swath Bathymetry and a Nadir Gap Filler capability are subsystem options available on the 5900 System.The Seagull USV from Elbit Systems, Inc. is a newly introduced 12-meter Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) designed with replaceable mission modules. Two Seagull vessels are capable of being operated and controlled in concert using a single Mission Control System (MCS), from manned ships or from the shore.

Even though the acronym AI is now well-embedded in banking industry consciousness, actual use of artificial intelligence, and its cousins machine learning and data analytics, has been limited except with a handful of the largest financial institutions.According to an MIT Sloan report cited by IBM, 81% of all enterprises do not understand what data is required for AI, or how to access it. Still, the report found that 83% agree that driving AI across the enterprise is a strategic opportunity.Meanwhile the big tech firms, notably Amazon, Google and Facebook, have built big leads in this area, powering their ecommerce empires, which increasingly include financial services.There are options, however, to enable a wider range of financial institutions to take advantage of AI for use in marketing, personalization, user experience, payments, and more.
