The UAS system is a state-of-the-art underwater intruder detection sonar specially designed by LSI, in collaboration with TEC (supplier that provides the TX/RX arrays and “Launch and recovery” sub-systems) to protect ships at anchor, off-shore platforms and oil terminals from terrorist attacks by divers or other possible underwater threats.
A single console can handle several antennas showing the tracks automatically classified as dangerous targets. This architecture allows the surveillance of a wider area without additional burden for the operator at the console.
All the HW and SW for signal acquisition and processing was designed and developed by LSI.
The UAS system will be composed, in its basic version, of the following units:
- UAS Antenna
- TX/RX antenna
- Launch and recovery system (SMMR) Ethernet routers (encrypted Wi-Fi or wired) Command and control console
