SAES present at Euronaval 2022 its capabilities in underwater measurement and maritime security.

SAES is presenting its capabilities in the following three areas: engineering and underwater technology systems; maritime security; and special operations.

In underwater signature measurement and ASW (anti-submarine warfare), SAES has developed the MIRS, SPAS and DISOUROS systems.

The Multi Influence Range System (MIRS) for surface vessels and submarines provides, simulatenously, real measurements of magnetic, electric, pressure, acoustic, and seismic influences.

SPAS is an acoustic sonobuoy processor for detecting, locating and tracking underwater threats from aerial platforms. It incorporates the most advanced acoustic processing techniques for all types of passive and active sonobuoys, implemented both analogically and digitally. The SPAS is fully operational in different countries and different platforms such as the P-3B Orion or the C-295 aircrafts.

DISOUROS is a powerful and advanced acoustic processor for detecting, locating and tracking submarine threats from combat ships using a low-frequency dipping sonar and passive sonobuoys. It provides multistatic processing and interoperability between the different ASW platforms involved: corvettes, frigates, helicopters, MPA aircrafts.

Special Operations

SAES has more than 30 years’ experience in the naval sector, developing smart naval mines such as the MINEA (equipped with multiple sensors) and naval mines for special forces. MINEA is a modern system with high detection and multi influence signature processing capabilities.

MINEA naval mines are the most advanced smart marine mines manufactured today. They are intended for training minesweeper crews to provide deeper insight to mine hunting and neutralisation techniques.

SAES technology is being used by naval forces and Navies around the world, including platforms used in naval warfare such as minesweepers, frigates, submarines, maritime patrol aircrafts, anti-submarine warfare helicopters and UXV vehicles.

SAES presents its MINEA capacities at DEFSEC Atlantic

The exhibition organised by the Atlantic Canada Aerospace & Defence Association, DEFSEC Atlantic, is held in Halifax (Nova Scotia) from 4 to 6 October. SAES, at DEFSEC together with Navantia, is showcasing its solutions on maritime safety and security, in particular, its MINEA smart naval mines capacities.

DEFSEC Atlantic 2022 is organised by the Atlantic Canada Aerospace & Defence Association to present new opportunities to the aerospace, defence and security industries around the world.

SAES is the only Spanish company specialised in underwater acoustics and electronics that provides technology and solutions for the underwater safety and security in both civil and military sectors. SAES has more than 30 years’ experience in the naval sector, developing smart naval mines such as MINEA, equipped with multiple sensors, as well as naval mines for special forces.

SAES takes part at DEFSEC Atlantic together with Navantia, and will showcase the MINEA multi-influence naval mines, a modern system equipped with the highest detection capabilities and signal processing.

SAES modernise the S-70 tactical submarine simulator, operational in the last 31 years

The modernisation of the S-70 tactical submarine simulator (SATS), developed by SAES and operational since 1991, will lengthen its lifetime for five more years. Spanish Navy crew will continue to use it for training purposes whilst S-70 submarines (soon to be replaced by the S-80 class submarines) are still active

The S-70 tactical submarine simulator (SATS) has been developed by SAES and delivered to the Spanish Navy in the first few years of the 90s, with the objective of training crews in resolving tactical problems that could occur during the submarine navigation, as it includes all elements and systems of the control room as well as the instructor station. SAES simulators for submarine training  have been designed to faithfully reproduce the scenarios, equipment, aspects, operation and sensations that the submarine’s equipment would have in a real situation. 

According to Víctor Azcárate, Post-sales Line Manager and responsible for the SATS maintenance service, “the latest acceptance tests within the SATS modernisation project (including its instructor station, control room, DLT and DSUV-22) were successfully carried out by the end of 2021 at the Submarine Base, in the presence of the RAC (Spanish Navy quality assurance official). 

The importance of the modernisation of this system, continues Mr. Azcárate, lies in that “it allows the Spanish Navy to continue using the SATS to train crews while there is still any S-70 class submarines in operation, as they will soon be replaced by the S-80 class submarines.” 

Since the SATS simulator was delivered to the Spanish Navy in 1991, SAES is in charge of its maintenance. Over the years and due to the age of the equipment, “it was becoming increasingly difficult to find spare parts (power source, motherboard, memories, hard disks, etc.) for equipment repairs,” explains Mr. Azcárate. In addition to this, the lifespan of the S-70 submarines has been extended: the Spanish Navy plans to retire them between the year 2025 and 2030. For all these reasons, SAES considered necessary the modernisation of the SATS: to ensure the operational nature of the simulator at least until 2030. 

According to Consuelo Lázaro, director of Operations at SAES, “I am very proud of the work performed by the team: SATS was my very first project at SAES and I have seen it grow and modernise, and it is not an easy task to successfully adapt such old systems.” 

SAES General Manager, Victoria Ruiz, explains that “the modernisation of the S-70 tactical submarine simulator (developed by SAES 31 years ago) is a significant milestone for us, as we continue to assist and support the major programmes of the Spanish Navy.”

SAES shows its underwater surveillance and protection of critical infrastructures at TECNOSEC, the first exhibition on technology and security in Madrid

SAES participates in TECNOSEC, 1st Exhibition & Congress of High Police, Security and Intelligence Technologies that is held in Madrid on 11-12 May. In the field of security and protection of critical infrastructures, SAES presents its diver detection sonar system (DDS-03) as well as its underwater deterrent system (DES).

The first edition of TECNOSEC (11-12 May) gathers more than a hundred of national and international companies from different Institutions and Police Forces and Critical Infrastructures at the Pabellon de Cristal in Madrid. The event is organised by APTIE (Spanish association to promote technologies and strategic industries), with the collaboration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the intelligence and enforcement services of Spain.

As a global scenario for security interoperability, TECNOSEC address the new framework for physical and logical security of critical infrastructures.

Underwater protection of critical infrastructures

In the field of security, SAES know-how is at the service of underwater protection of critical infrastructures such as ports, offshore installations, fish farming (aquaculture), etc. For instance, systems such as SAES diver detection sonar system (called DDS-03), allows the protection of infrastructures from underwater threats (divers, submarine vehicles, etc.).

SAES underwater deterrent system (called DES) complements the system allowing action against intruder divers by sending audible messages to alert them. Both systems (DDS-03 and DES) can be permanently installed at the dock, from anchoring vessels or even from surveillance vehicles (including unmanned vehicles USV/UUV) in order to broaden its range of application.

Besides its solutions based on active sonars, SAES can also apply its know-how on acoustic, electric, and magnetic sensors to offer a complete and integrated underwater protection to any infrastructure that may require it.
