SAES Naval Mines, Maritime Security and Simulation
SAES – S.A. Electrónica Submarina specialises in undersea security and defence, providing some of the most advanced multi-influence naval mines on the market.
Simulation and training systems are needed for highly trained military forces. Other reasons are to reduce cost in manoeuvres, training on specific contents and shorter development deadlines. Various lines of products of SAES cover safety in these areas.
Advanced naval mines
Combining a wide variety of sensors and sophisticated processing algorithms, SAES has developed advanced naval mines for varied uses that comprise:
- MINEA Combat is the most advanced multi-influence naval mine available. MINEA family includes moored mines, shallow water mines and cylindrical bottom mines
- MINEA Exercise version is available to be used for MCM training and to gather intelligence information through the measuring and recording of ship signatures
- MILA is a smart limpet mine that incorporates a detonation system controlled by a computer. It is available in exercise (reusable and inert) and combat versions
Likewise, in mine warfare field, SAES is highly specialised in technical and technological support for construction or updating of minehunters, including CRV vibration and noise monitoring system, training system, acoustic tracking system (ATS).
Other important aspect is the signature measurement. Please visit our website or the SAES Underwater Signature profile on this site to know more about SAES multi-influence range systems for measurement and analysis of signatures specifically designed to provide navies with necessary knowledge to be applied in mine warfare.
Maritime security to protect from new threats
Today, asymmetrical threats in the fields of defence and international security make it necessary to deploy underwater protection systems for ports, drilling platforms, anchored boats, power plants, large oil refining companies, and any infrastructure of interest and extremely important which require protection.
The development of systems to facilitate protection of the environment, wrecks and marine life is also a key factor.
SAES provides protection and undersea surveillance integrated systems, which are adapted to every need. Solutions include:
- SIDIS: Integrated Surveillance System. A modular system and easily adaptable to specific operational environments and requirements based on the selection of the most appropriate sensors
- SIMOAC: Acoustic monitoring system. To measure and analyse the underwater acoustic environment, and also to detect the presence of marine mammals in a specific area, including their localisation
Simulation and training
SAES develops following solutions fully adapted to customer requirements, including:
- SIM / STIM: sonar simulator / stimulator
- Submarine tactical simulators
- Naval tactical simulator
- TAT: tactical acoustic trainer

Products and Services
Limpet Naval Mine
MILA is a smart limpet mine that incorporates a detonation system controlled by a computer. It can be attached to the hull by frogmen or be used as a demolition charge as well.
Multi-Influence Naval Mines, Combat and Exercise
The Multi-influence naval mines MINEA are the most advanced naval mines made at the moment.
SIDIS – Integral Security System
SIDIS is a high-performance multi-sensor system directed to detect, track and classify underwater intruders in maritime areas to be protected. SIDIS provides additional capabilities of reaction and deterrence against threats.
Simulation and Training
SAES simulators allow individual specific training or simulation of joint missions among various navies. It is possible to recreate any situation or scenario. SAES also develops interface simulators and functional simulators of equipment and systems to be used in the development, integration and validation of projects before all the equipment required for them is available.
Multi-Influence Naval Mines (MINEA-C)
The multi-influence cylindrical bottom naval mine MINEA is the most advanced operational naval mine system in service.
Limpet Naval Mine – MILA
MILA-6C is a smart computer-controlled time-fuzzed underwater limpet naval mine, that can be fixed by frogmen onto the hull of the ships or used as demolition charge.
