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.

SAES participates in Feindef 2021, the largest Defence exhibition in Spain, as an ‘Innovation Partner’

 

The second edition of the International Defence and Security Fair (Feindef) returns to IFEMA from 3 to 5 November, where SAES will be sponsoring INNOVATION . The MIRS system, developed by SAES to measure the different multi-influence signatures of ships, as well as its maritime security devices, will be on display at the stand.

The most important fair of the defence and security sector in Spain, Feindef, celebrates its second edition from 3 to 5 November at the IFEMA facilities. This event has become the national reference forum to share knowledge and cooperate ringing together companies, organizations, universities and other organisations in the sector. SAES participates as an Innovation Partner, following its strategic commitment to support the best innovation projects in the defence and security sector.

SAES is leader in underwater technology and innovation, and it is showing some of its most advanced products at Feindef, such us the MIRS system that measures multi-influence signatures (acoustic, electrical, magnetic, pressure and seismic) of ships. This MIRS system developed by SAES is already used in several countries, and in the coming months a station of these characteristics will allow Navantia and the Spanish Navy to measure the signatures that characterise the S-80 submarines.

This technology is also applied to maritime security devices such as MINEA, a product that SAES is also exhibiting at Feindef: a multipurpose system that provides a complete solution to all activities related to mining and counter-mining operations.

SAES is also exhibiting the DDS or Diver Detection System: a small, lightweight active sonar that is used as a protection device easily deployable from the side of a ship or installed in fixed mode as a defence at the entrance of a port or critical facilities.

 

Leaders in underwater acoustics and electronics

SAES is therefore a leader in sonar technology and anti-submarine defence, backed by its participation in the Spanish Navy’s major naval programmes for more than 30 years. Among others, it has been an essential part of the Spanish Segura class minehunters, the S-70 and S-80 submarines, the F-100 and F110 frigates and the P-3M maritime patrol aircraft, all of them dedicated to the submarine defence of our coasts.

In its commitment to the environment, SAES makes its technology available to civil applications with systems and services for the measurement of underwater noise and electromagnetic pollution, offering analysis and modelling tools to study and evaluate the noise produced by ships, underwater wind farms, oil platforms and other marine installations.

The positioning of SAES as a leading technology company is reinforced in its strategic plan for 2022, in which resources are expanded to carry out an internal digital transformation process and for the incorporation of new technologies, with special attention to artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.     As part of this effort, its facilities have been adapted and approved for the manufacture of the elements that make up the F110’s hull sonar and its subsequent testing process.

SAES presents its underwater measurement systems for the civil sector at World Maritime Week (WMW) in Bilbao

SAES exhibits at SINAVAL its MIRS model, a dual application which works as a multi-influence radiation measurement system for ships, as well as an underwater measuring station for environmental assessment. SINAVAL, focused on shipbuilding, is one of the five congresses held by the International Maritime Week. The event is organised by the Bilbao Exhibition Center (BEC) from 5th to 7th October.

SAES participates as a co-exhibitor with Navantia in SINAVAL, the international naval congress part of the “World Maritime Week 2021”, which hosts in parallel 4 other congresses related to the following fields: fishing (EUROFISHING); ports (FUTUREPORT); upstream and downstream oil & gas (OIL & GAS CONFERENCE); and wave, tidal and current energy (OCEAN ENERGY CONFERENCE).

 SAES is interested in the five areas of the WORLD MARITIME WEEK and is showing at SINAVAL its portfolio of underwater measurement and analysis products as well as its services for the civil sector, such as the SDH smart digital hydrophone or the MIRS: a multi-influence signature measurement system for ships, applicable for environmental assessment. This system is one of a wide range of SAES products with dual applications for both the defence and civil markets: from diver detection sonars (detection of underwater intrusion) to multi-influence signature measurement systems and sonobuoys acoustic processor systems.

As specialist in underwater acoustics, SAES is also presenting its DDS-03: a high-frequency sonar specially designed for the for the detection of underwater threats, such as divers and manned and unmanned underwater vehicles, as well as the protection and surveillance of critical infrastructures (whether they are shipyards, ports, aquaculture facilities, oil or gas extraction and processing platforms or marine generators).

The system watches over the underwater area to be protected autonomously and continuously. When detecting a threat, the system generates an alert and continues to monitor it, allowing to know the exact position, distance, trajectory, and type of threat. This information enables to be activated well in advance acoustic deterrents to counter the threat, such as dispatching a patrol to the area.

Both the sonar and the acoustic deterrent system allow their deployment from patrol boats, manned or not, thus expanding the coverage radius of the system, compared to a fixed installation.    

Underwater measurement for the civil sector

SAES has products for underwater measurement and analysis services for the civil sector, such as the SDH smart digital hydrophone or the MIRS system.

The MIRS system measures and processes not only acoustic emissions but also electrical and magnetic radiation and other influences and parameters such as the seismic wave and the temperature.

On the other hand, the SDH is a dual device designed and built to be used by oceanographic institutes, universities, certification companies as well as for applications in the military sector. One of the main applications of the SDH smart digital hydrophone is the measurement of the indicators defined in descriptor 11 (European Directive 2008/56/EC establishing a framework for community action in the field of marine environmental policy).

These solutions are applicable to conducting scientific and environmental studies, as well as to verifying underwater noise levels caused by maritime traffic, construction activities at sea, oil and gas extraction platforms and offshore wind fields, among others; as well as any facility or activity that may introduce energy into the marine environment.
