SAES recently participated at the Global SOF Symposium and ADEX 2018 from 25-27 September.

Global SOF Symposium is an international conference specialising in special forces and took place in Madrid.

ADEX (Azerbaijan International Defense Exhibition, for its acronym in English) was held in Baku.

At SOF, the company focused on the underwater demolition charge MILA and the Diver Detection Sonar DDS-03 systems. Both products were special interesting for a number of representatives of the Special Forces attending the conference. Specifically, SAES was visited by both the Major General and the Commander of the MCOE (Joint Special Operations Command) and the Nato SOF HeadQuarters Commander. Also, representatives from foreign countries such as Sweden and Ukraine visited the stand.

DDS-03 can detect divers or other underwater intrusions such as underwater vehicles. These types of underwater threats can be easily circumvented. The solution is to incorporate diver detection sonar into the surveillance system of those military and commercial ports, power stations or petrochemical plants, oil platforms, anchored ships and other high-value assets with access to water mass.

MILA MILA is an underwater demolition charge that incorporates a computer-controlled detonation system. It is used by combat divers in covert underwater operations to neutralize threats.

At the Azerbaijan exhibition, ADEX 2018, SAES presented, besides the previously said DDS-03 and MILA, the product line focused on MCM warfare: the MINEA naval mines and MIRS Multi-influence Range Systems.

MINEA naval mines are the most advanced smart marine mines manufactured today. They are intended for training minesweeper crews. Knowing how an advanced smart mine works is essential to the safety of the vessel.

The Multi Influence Range System (MIRS) for surface vessels and submarines provides, simultaneously, real measurements of following influences: magnetic, electric, pressure, acoustic, and seismic.

SAES team met the naval officer and representatives from countries in the Caspian region such as Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and of Saudi Arabia, the US, Malaysia, Egypt, and France.
