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.
