An innovative safety system for improving the capabilities of incognito monitoring of both underwater and surface maritime traffic.
Approach & Solution
The institutional tasks of the Italian Navy include the monitoring of territorial waters, which is fundamental for ensuring their defense and security. This is a delicate task that requires constant improvement of control capability and monitoring tools able to operate in hidden mode. For this reason, the Naval Support and Experimentation Center of the Navy, a scientific and technological center of excellence, involved our experts in the development of an innovative platform able to detect objects on the surface and underwater in a hidden way.
Our solution consists of two parts:
- the "Underwater" component through which the system acquires the acoustic traces of the detected target and transmits them to the "Data Processing" center
- the "Data Processing" component which processes the data collected, returning a list of "Alerts" and "Warnings" that correspond to potentially dangerous events.
