Mission Control and Ubiquitous Radar Systems A Hit With Delegations
SEASTEMA, a Fincantieri company based in Genoa, enjoyed a considerable number of visitors to its booth at IMDEX 2019 in Singapore last month and has declared the event “a striking success,” according to a company statement on 10 June. Showcasing its latest naval technologies at the show, the company focused specific visitor attention on two examples of its advanced solutions: the SEASTactics integrated mission and control system and the OMEGA360 ubiquitous digital radar, highlighting its capabilities as a systems integrator and naval systems supplier.
SEASTactics is the core of a fully integrated system for patrol vessels and auxiliary ships, providing all necessary mission-related functions and facilities: planning and executing operations, compiling and maintaining the tactical picture and leveraging all on-board subsystems to support the assigned task.
OMEGA360 is a groundbreaking, ubiquitous radar able to provide uninterrupted short-range (up to 30 km) 360° surveillance. It is a software defined radar, designed primarily for naval surface surveillance. Its ubiquitous non-rotating antenna copes with the most demanding threats a modern navy has to counter, both in traditional and asymmetric warfare scenarios, working as a complement to the vessel’s main radar system.
“We strive to push the envelope in maritime and naval technology with each passing year, building innovative solutions that support and expand our clients’ capabilities […] Innovation and growth are at our core: SEASTEMA builds on its solid foundations and know-how in the maritime field and on-board system integration to continuously improve our offer and efficiently respond both to traditional requirements and to new ones […] For example, SEASTactics has been designed primarily for patrolling and auxiliary units, to support navies and shipyards with a single interface, an integrator enabling compact and cost-effective high quality solutions. Moreover, it will allow for a reduction in the manning requirements for future vessels and as a spearhead for future applications to unmanned military vessels as well. Last but not least, our OMEGA360 radar, that we unveil here for the first time, was wholly internally developed to support and expand existing naval vessels capabilities. It’s a radically new technology and we believe we will find application for it even beyond the naval and maritime domain,” commented SEASTEMA CEO, Alessandro Concialini.
