DefenSe attachés from 22 countries visit SAES

During the visit to the facilities in Cartagena, real-size scale models of the DDS-03 diver detection sonar, the MINEA training naval mines and the MILA special operations

A group of 33 Defense Attachés from 22 countries, accompanied by the Spanish Navy and the Ministry of Defense of Spain, had visited the SAES facilities in Cartagena. The countries represented have been Germany, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Cote d’Ivoire, France, Guatemala, Honduras, Italy, Lithuania, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Senegal, Uruguay and USA.

The objective of the visit is to publicize the capabilities of the company, like reference in acoustics and underwater defense systems in Spain, and participant of the major naval programs developed in the country, such as submarines S-70, S-80 and the minehunter of the Segura class, among others…

During the meeting, scale models of the DDS-03 diver detection sonar, the MILA special operations naval mine and the MINEA multi-influence naval mines were shown.

In addition, it have been presentations of acoustic sonobuoy processors, candidates to be integrated into the combat system of the F-110, and of the portable system of multi-influence MIRS signature measurements.

On the visit, the Defence Attachés have been especially interested in systems based on multi-influence measurement technology: MINEA mines and MIRS system. Both are capable of detecting the acoustic, electrical, magnetic, seismic and pressure influences of the ship. In the case of mines, in order to detect the signature of the vessel that has been previously programmed and in the case of the signature measurement system, to characterize the ship’s multi-influence signature.

SAES exhibits sonar technology at SITDEF 2019

From May 16th to 19th, SAES shows acoustic processing systems for underwater defence in Peru

SAES attends the 7th  edition of SITDEF, which is held in Lima from May 16th  to 19th, by a stand shared with Navantia, to promote sonar technology such as DDS-03 diver detection sonar, sonobuoy acoustic processor SPAS for antisubmarine warfare

SAES at SITDEF 2019

The DDS-03 system allows to detect possible underwater threats in military and commercial ports, oil rigs, anchored ships, petrochemical plants and other valuable assets.

As specialists in sonar technology, SAES also has equipment for acoustic analysis and classification of contacts, as well as, systems for obtaining signature intelligence. The company has integrated these systems with combat systems of various platforms, such as submarines, minehunters and frigates. In addition, its sonobuoy processing systems are also in service in MPAs aircraft and antisubmarine warfare helicopters.

In addition, SAES is expert in training naval mines. They manufacture the MINEA family of smart naval mines, equipped with multiple sensors, and MILA limpet mine for special operations forces.

SAES celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and attend at SITDEF for the third time in order to promote relations with the Peruvian authorities and offer our knowledge and systems.

SITDEF, International Exhibition of Technology for the Defense and Disaster Prevention, is a biannual meeting, approved by the Government of Peru and promoted by the Ministry of Defense and the Navy of Peru, since 2007.
