September 16, 2015 - SAES participates with a stand (S7-362), shared with Navantia, in the International Defence and Security Exhibition DSEI at London from 15 to 18 September.
SAES, referent in Spain in underwater acoustics and electronics, attends to DSEI in a favourable environment; “the latest plans in Europe and Asia to modernize the Navies include submarines, surface platforms, helos, unmanned vessels, UAVs, etc. SAES, as specialist in underwater electronics, has a wide range of systems at the forefront of the market in those areas,” asserts the commercial manager. Effectively, the company offers solutions in different fields of submarine warfare, specifically in Sonar Systems, ASW, Sonobuoy Processing, Signature Intelligence, Multi-influence Naval Mines, Maritime and Coast Security and Simulation, suitable for all type of platforms.
SAES is getting numerous visits from local and foreign official delegations, as well as from companies interested in their products to establish partnerships that will achieve greater success. In fact, the joint participation with Navantia at the fair it is a way to exploit the synergies between these two major Spanish companies.
At Sonar area, the high-frequency active sonar “DDS-03 (intruder detection sonar)” has caught the interest of participants since allow the underwater surveillance and protection of critical facilities as ports and refineries. This kind of systems are being required by a growing number of countries because they are an efficient protection systems against asymmetric threats, which are being taking into account, increasingly, in the strategies of defence of the countries. “Our system can cover large areas and allows the processing of up to 10 sonar and also can be integrated into any surveillance system together to others sensors and systems” says the head of the sonar commercial line. “Furthermore, DDS offers additional capabilities such as the wireless communication and the training,” he adds.
In the modern ASW framework, which variety of platforms (frigates, corvets, helos, UAVs…) collaborate in a Network Centric Warfare (NCW) to interchange information, is mandatory the use of systems that allows the centralized managing of this and the quickly decision making. “The ROASW system, developed by SAES and based on the acoustic processing of sonobuoys, is the perfect solution to manage this kind of ASW mission since it constitutes a unique, fully integrated ship/air weapon solution that allow to make decisions in a quick and agile centralized way, and the communication of tactical data and acoustic by Surface –To – Surface (S2S), Surface – To – Helo (S2H) and Surface – To – Satellite (SATCOM)”, sustains the head of ASW commercial line. In fact, the Swedish Royal Navy has equipped their Visby class corvettes and the HKP-15 helicopters with the ROASW system (formerly known as SDL).
SAES, as an expert at the measuring and control of underwater signatures (acoustic, sismica, magnetic, electric and pressure), develops systems for Underwater SIGINT as MIRS (Multi-influence range system) as well as naval mines (MINEA-Multi-influence Naval Mines), both exercise and combat versions. The exercise mine can be used, in addition to training at MCM, to gather intelligence information by measurement and recording of ships influence signatures.
The easy integration of its systems and the experience in important international programs are some of the keys characteristics highlighted by SAES that provide them the opportunity to work for numerous Navies around the world.
