The Ship

Built by Goa Shipyard Limited and commissioned into the Naval service at Visakhapatnam under the command of Capt SS Karnik in 2001, Darshak is the Indian Navy's eighth hydrographic survey ship to have been indigenous designed and constructed. Incidentally, the first indigenously built survey ship of the Navy, inducted in 1964 and decommission in 1990, was also named INS Darshak.

The new Darshak is equipped with a range of surveying, navigational and communication systems. The next-generation surveying systems provided onboard include the multibeam swath echo sounding system, differential global positioning system, motion sensors, sea gravimeter, magnetometer oceanographic sensors, side scan sonars and an automated data logging system. These are designed to meet the stringent international/ISO 9002 digital survey accuracy standards required for the production of electronic navigation charts and publications.
