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.

   

SAES participates with Navantia in DSEI London, the largest international security and defence exhibition

SAES presents the portable MIRS (Multi Influence Range System), for the measurement of multi-influence signatures for surface vessels and submarines. This system is used to measure ship noise and has important applications in both the defence and environmental sectors.

SAES participates as a co-exhibitor with Navantia at the DSEI (Defence and Security Equipment International) trade exhibition, held in London from September 14th to 17th, where its customised high-tech solutions for the civil and military markets are shown.

As a company specialised in underwater acoustic and non-acoustic signal processing, SAES develops defence and security solutions on board all types of platforms: submarines, surface ships as well as aircraft and anti-submarine helicopters.

Portable multi-influence measurement system

MIRS is a multi-influence signature measurement system for surface and submarine vessels that simultaneously measures magnetic, electrical, acoustic and pressure influences.

Its portability allows its use in the desired scenario for multiple purposes: to obtain the ship’s signature in a real scenario; to use it in a fixed station, as a discrete way of obtaining intelligence in strategic areas; and routine checks of the firm or before of a mission.

Both MIRS underwater measuring station and SDH intelligent digital hydrophone can also be applied to carry out scientific and environmental studies, as well as to measure and study the underwater noise levels emitted from ships and coastal industrial facilities in pre-defined zones of interest. In this way, it is possible to control that these levels remain within defined thresholds as well as to reduce the impact produced by activities such as maritime traffic, construction activities at sea, oil & gas platforms and offshore wind fields.

SAES lecture in NATCOM21 about the advanced processing of the underwater of the Multi-Influence signature

During the online celebration of the 16th Baltic Military Fair, where SAES participates as an exhibitor.

SAES will offer the lecture Multi-Influence Signature: Modern Signal Processing Techniques to increase the Detectability and Classification of Ships, by Francisco Javier Rodrigo Saura, Head of Maritime Security Product Line, at the IX International Scientific and Technical Conference NATCON “Maritime technologies for defence and security”, which will take place online from April 20th to 22th.

Mr. Javier Rodrigo will present the results of his studies on the exploitation of the multi-influence signature, composed of the acoustic, static and alternating electromagnetic, seismic and pressure signature. Through signal processing techniques based on Machine Learning methods applied to the multi-influence signature, it is verified that the joint exploitation of the signatures increases the detection and classification capability in naval detection systems in comparison with to the individual processing of each type of signature.

To analyse and evaluate the improvement in the detection and classification capacity, standard techniques and techniques based on Machine Learning methods are applied to a Database of multi-influence measurements of surface vessels acquired in shallow waters with the MIRS multi-influence measurement system manufactured by SAES.
