Hydrolocation technologies


The SHL-101/TM is a triple frequency wideband, high resolution hull mounted MCM sonar. It performs detection and classification bottom and anchor mines, including difficult detectable mines. It can operate in shallow and deep waters with strong layering as well as in the presence of interferences. The SHL-101/TM sonar has outstanding detection and classification performance due to state-of-the-art processing hardware and software applications. The usage of FM signals enables impulse compression to increase the signal-to-noise ratio and obtain the several centimeters of depth resolution. This feature significantly improves detection and classification performance against stealthy mines in waters with a high noise level. The SHL-101/TM sonar has a modular structure and can be easily adapted to different types of ships.


Dual-frequency, broadband sonar with antenna assembly, SHL-300. The SHL-300 is a dual-frequency, broadband sonar with antenna assembly. The sonar is designed to be mounted on remotely operated vehicles (ROV) and to detect, locate and classify bottom and anchor mines and other underwater objects lying on the bottom of water or hung in the water with particular consideration the hydrometeorological conditions occurring in the South Baltic Sea area. The SHL-300 sonar enables marine mine countermeasure actions to be carried out in shallow and deep waters with strong layering as well as in the presence of interferences. The SHL-300 sonar is a component of the underwater weapon armament of a minehunter class ship.



Sensory platforms


We offer towed sensory platforms, which are specialized maritime measurement systems. The platform equipped with magnetometers and vertical rudders, is stabilized at a set altitude over sea bottom, allows to detect the ferromagnetic objects, from sea mines to live bombs. Equipped with an electromagnetic detector, enables searching for metallic objects. With the side sonar installed and stabilization task at a certain depth, it offers high quality acoustic display of the sea bottom. We supply platforms adapted to specific measurement tasks together with sensors or integrated with indicated devices.


It is worth mentioning, that within BURMIN Project, carried out by the consortium consisting of: TUS – leader (FR), CTM(PL), TNO (NL), RMA (BE), WTD 71 (GE), Fraunhofer ICT (GE), IPHT Jena (GE) and Atlas Elektronik (GE), we developed an underwater sensory platform, which at MSPO in 2016, received the DEFENDER award.



Detection barriers


The barrier is designed for continuous, automatic monitoring of underwater situation in sea bases and ports in terms of protection against terrorist threats such as: divers, small underwater vehicles, etc. The subsystem, equipped with a high sensitivity magnetic transducer, installed on the seabed, detects local magnetic anomalies caused by mentioned objects.


Monostatic acoustic barrier (MAB) is a multisensor hydroacoustic sensor designed to protect the maritime critical infrastructure such as: harbour entrances, port basins, ships at berth, approaches to harbours, anchorages, drilling platforms, reloading terminals. The system is designed to detect small underwater and surface objects. It can be used as an autonomous system or as part of a more complex antiterrorist protection system. The monostatic acoustic barrier does not pose any risks to the natural environment, since the best available techniques and technologies during the design and production process were used.
