SAES presents its solutions in defence and underwater measurement at INDO PACIFIC 2022

The International Maritime Exposition INDO PACIFIC 2022 is held from 10th to 12th May in Sydney. SAES attends the event alongside Navantia Australia and it will be presenting its solutions in Naval Mines, ASW systems, protection of critical infrastructures, coastal protection, as well as signature measurement systems.

SAES attends the International Maritime Exposition INDO PACIFIC 2022  alongside its partner Navantia Australia, from the 10th to the 12th of May at the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney).

INDO PACIFIC 2022 is the premier event of the maritime industry in Australia and, for the first time since 2019, it is gathering commercial maritime and naval defence suppliers to decision-makers from around the world: more than 35 countries will be represented.

SAES is presenting at INDO PACIFIC 2022 its latest developments in smart naval mines such as the MINEA, equipped with multiple sensors, as well as the MILA, designed for special forces operations.

MINEA, the advanced exercise naval mines designed and manufactured by SAES, are designed to measure the real detectability of naval platforms at sea. It is a modern system with high capacity for detection and multi-influence signature signal processing.

SAES is also presenting its ASW systems for naval and aerial platforms, critical infrastructures and protection of underwater environment, as well as SAES technology for underwater signature measurements for submarines and vessels (MIRS and DEWARS systems, designed to obtain the acoustic, magnetic, electric, seismic and pressure signatures of vessels).

Eguermin, Naval Mine Warfare school and NATO Centre of Excellence, visits SAES

Eguermin, the Naval Mine Warfare school and NATO Centre of Excellence (located in Ostend Naval Base, Belgium) visits SAES facilities for a third time as part of their training programme. Navy officials from Belgium, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, United States and Norway have been able to gain first-hand knowledge of the SAES products on underwater defence.

The delegation visiting SAES consisted of 16 members of Eguermin from a variety of countries (Belgium, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, United States and Norway), along with the MCM (Maritime Mine Countermeasure) Forces  Commander, Navy Captain José Miguel Maiquez Lax.

SAES, with facilities in Cartagena (headquarters) and San Fernando (Cádiz), is the leading company for the Spanish Navy on underwater acoustics, and it is also at the international forefront on the development and manufacturing of underwater multi-influence signature measurement systems as well as exercise naval mines.

The Eguermin delegation was welcomed by SAES General Manager, Victoria Ruiz, who gave them a brief presentation of the company and gave them a plaque of appreciation for their visit: one to Commander Evert de Boer (Eguermin School) and another one to MCM Forces  Commander, Navy Captain José Miguel Maiquez Lax. Following the welcome speech, Eguermin Navy officials attended a briefing with presentations on SAES business lines and underwater defence products such as MILA, MINEA, and its associated developments. Then they visited SAES workshops and labs in the facilities located in La Palma industrial site.

Visiting SAES for a third time

NATO Naval Mine Warfare and Centre of Excellence ‘Eguermin’ is visiting SAES for the third time, following those of 2016 and 2018, including central headquarters, workshops and labs. Two limpet naval mine mockups (MILA) developed by SAES are being exhibited in Eguermin, the Naval Mine Warfare School where NATO officials are trained.

Eguermin was created in 1965 as a Belgian-Dutch Naval Mine Warfare School and in 2006 was accredited by the North Atlantic Council as a NATO Naval Mine Warfare Centre of Excellence, both located in the same naval base.

SAES products on underwater defence

MINEA is the most advanced multi-influence naval mines today. It develops several types of mines (moored, shallow water and cylindrical bottom) both in combat and exercise versions.

MINEA Naval Mines are equipped with sensors for detection and processing of the magnetic, electric, pressure, acoustic and seismic signatures. MINEA Exercise version are available for training purposes and for gathering intelligence information through the measuring and recording of ship signatures.

MILA is a smart limpet mine that incorporates a programmable detonation system. It can be attached to the hull by a diver, or it can be used as a demolition charge. Its conical shape and low weight in water endow the mine with a low hydrodynamic resistance being easy to be carried by divers.

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.
