Na­van­tia’s in­te­grated sur­veil­lance and re­con­nais­sance sys­tem

SP's MAI - - SHOW REPORT -

The Span­ish com­pany which is strong in of­fer­ings for navies has some prod­ucts and so­lu­tions for land, through Na­vanita Faba, which is a state-of-the-art cen­tre spe­cialised in the in­te­gra­tion of high­tech com­plex sys­tems. Na­van­tia Faba has ac­quired the know-how as a com­bat sys­tem in­te­gra­tor with many types of ships, pa­trol ves­sels, air-de­fence frigates, sub­marines, air­craft car­rier etc.

It is of­fer­ing now land sur­veil­lance and re­con­nais­sance sys­tem called SERT show­cased at Eurosa­tory.

Giv­ing de­tails of the sys­tem, Jose Al­fonso Car­dona Peral, Pro­gramme Man­ager, said that the com­pany, which had a rich knowl­edge-base, had come up with this off­shoot in land sys­tems. “We are of­fer­ing this to the Span­ish Army as well as mar­ket­ing it in Latin Amer­ica where Span­ish is the lan­guage and easy for us to work with. But, we are now look­ing at other mar­kets too, in­clud­ing In­dia.”

The SERT, he said, com­prised elec­troop­ti­cal (EO) bat­tle­field sur­veil­lance and tar­get lo­ca­tion sys­tem; in­te­grated de­fence (self-pro­tec­tion) sys­tem; nav­i­ga­tion and night driv­ing aid­ing sys­tem and bat­tle­field man­age­ment sys­tem. The in­te­grated sys­tem, he claimed, gave the sol­dier solid in­for­ma­tion which could be used de­ci­sively.

The elec­tro-op­ti­cal bat­tle­field sur­veil­lance and tar­get lo­ca­tion sys­tem al­lows day and night bat­tle­field sur­veil­lance and tar­get de­tec­tion. It is based on an EO sys­tem with lat­est gen­er­a­tion pas­sive (IR, vis­i­ble) and ac­tive (laser) sen­sors. It has both on-ve­hi­cle and dis­mounted ver­sions.

The in­te­grated de­fence sys­tem pro­vides the ve­hi­cle with a self-pro­tec­tion sys­tem in­te­grated with all other ve­hi­cle sys­tems, avoid­ing the crew ex­po­sure to the ve­hi­cle out­side. Mod­u­lar al­lows the in­stal­la­tion of small cal­i­bre guns: 7.62mm and 12.70mm.

The nav­i­ga­tion and night driv­ing aid­ing sys­tem is de­signed to pro­vide all-weather ve­hi­cle op­er­a­tion. It is based on a high res­o­lu­tion un­cooled ther­mal im­ager in­te­grated with all other in-ve­hi­cle sys­tems for safe driv­ing in com­plete dark­ness.

The bat­tle­field man­age­ment sys­tem pro­vides mis­sion spe­cific tools (ar­tillery, cavalry, in­tel­li­gence) and is com­pletely in­te­grated with all other SERT sys­tems as well as with the unit com­mand, con­trol and com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tem, avoid­ing un­nec­es­sary du­plic­i­ties and pro­vid­ing safe re­dun­dan­cies.
