SAES has established contacts with several important manufacturers of UAVs that have passed through the stand, offering cooperation to increase the value of their UAV models by adding the ROASW system.
The ROASW airborne segment (ROASW-AS) can be installed on unmanned or manned aerial vehicles being remotely operated from the ROASW surface segment (ROASW-SS), which is installed on surface platforms (either on a ship or a ground station).
As already mentioned, the ROASW system can work in a Network Centric Warfare (NCW) exchanging tactical and intelligence information between forces deployed in the ASW mission (Ship-To-Ship & Ship-To-Helo communication) and remote ground stations (Ship-To-Satellite communication), improving the control of the mission and increasing the detection range.
The fact of ROASW system enables small combat ships (500 to 2000 ton) to actively participate in ASW missions closest to cost produced a great impact on the audience.
