SAES presented in MAST EurAsia 2014 its most recent study on underwater magnetic & electric measurement analysis.

The study, entitled “Main characteristics of the MIRS measured electric and magnetic underwater radiations emitted by cruise ships in the Mediterranean Sea”, is based on data collected during a period of 4 months with the SAES’ manufactured last generation Multi-influence Range System (MIRS), which configures as one of the most advanced equipment in its class.

Multi-influence range systemNowadays there exists an increasing concern in the international community on the effects on the marine life of the acoustics and non-acoustic underwater radiations, as reflected in the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) of the European Union (EU). Additionally, there is in this field an important lack of information on the characteristics of non-acoustic radiations from specific types of vessels.

In order to contribute to mitigate this lack of information, SAES is developing a series of studies on the radiation generated by vessels, and specifically their magnetic and electric emissions, since their impact is much less known than this produced by acoustic radiations. First results of the studies, centered in cruise ships measurements, will be explained in depth in the MAST EurAsia 2014 Conference, on Wednesday 21st May at 8:30 hrs (Session 5C).

SAES has analyzed the underwater electric and magnetic fields generated by a type of vessels increasingly present in the seas and oceans: the cruise ships. These analyses are based on the data captured by the SAES’ manufactured Multi-Influence Range System (MIRS), deployed during a period of several months in the area of Cartagena to evaluate if the measured levels could impact in marine fauna in the area, following guidelines of the MSFD.

Navy officers of Mexico and Peru visit SAES

Officers belonging to the navies of Peru and Mexico have visited SAES facilities as part of the «International Master’s Degree in Naval Engineering» of the School of Naval Engineers of the UPM (Polytechnic University of Madrid).

Oficiales de Perú y México del Master Internacional en Ingeniería Naval Militar visitando SAESOften, the Armed Forces of many countries deems appropriate to complement the technical training aspect of his officers. In this sense, the objective of the «International Master’s Degree in Naval Engineering» is to provide the technical knowledge and management to oversee the procurement of complex systems, management of projects, and maintenance throughout its life cycle.

SAES, as a leading company in Spain in acoustic and submarine electronic, received the mentioned officers to show them different sonar systems, ship influence signature measurement, exercise naval mines and showed the different capabilities and the various developments of the company.

SAES searches partners and European funding for USMA program of monitoring and analysis of submarine signatures in Brussels.

The SAES USMA (Signature Underwater Monitoring and Analysis Centre) program, which could be developed within the European framework Horizonte2020 would be an essential tool for the effective implementation of the EU Marine Strategy.

SIMOAC. Unidad Marina.

SAES has participated on 23 and 24 January at meetings of the Security Information and Mission Innovation Group (SMI2G) in Brussels, to launch the USMA program within the framework program European Horizon 2020 (H2020). The SMI2G, born in 2004, is an open forum oriented to security programs in the EU in order to exchange views on potential proposals for Research and Technology (R&T). SAES has contacted European companies and research centres to find partners to develop the USMA program and obtain European funding.
