Dedicated to the security of coastal and port infrastructures, the solution UMIS for Security proposed by ECA Group during Milipol 2017, and which is about to be commercialised promises a significant change to manage Port and coastal security.

To improve the performance of current devices, ECA Group, a simple and efficient solution which deploys different types of developed robots.

“In order to lift the limitations linked to the fixed sensors, ECA Group has designed solutions that make the sensors mobile. These solutions provide more precise and performant information with a wider viewing range. They enable to better detect dangers and to generate alerts well in advance so that action can be taken at sea and infrastructures can be protected. ”, explains Vincent Clavier, in charge of Homeland Security activity within ECA Group.

ECA Group’s idea is both simple and extremely sophisticated as it is based on a fleet of different robots  carrying sensors, and which managed and coordinated with one single command post equipped with the new software suite UMIS for Security.

"The real novelty of this software suite is its ability to integrate seamlessly into existing systems, its primary purpose being the supplementing of the already installed devices. The added value is its ability to supervise the fleet of sensors, to process and communicate information and as well to manage, operate and coordinate the robots’ tasks. UMIS for Security provides access to a global and interactive situation interface, with the option to define surveillance zones for example, generate alerts, transmit commands and react before the danger reaches the zone requiring protection, and all of this without putting humans at risk. “.

Three robot families: unmanned vehicles on the ground, in the air and under water

ECA Group proposes three types of robots able to carry the mobile sensors.

The main device is USV INSPECTOR MK2, an unmanned boat functioning by remote control or navigating in autonomous mode to fight against terrorism, malicious or activism acts.

When necessary, it can escort suspicious boats and  collect as much information or react if required in critical situations. This naval surface drone can be equipped with radars, deterrents, visual or thermal cameras and transmit images in real time.

This equipment can be supplemented with a second type of ECA Group underwater robots; They can be autonomous (AUVs) such as the A9-E  or remotely operated (ROV) like the SEASCAN. These devices inspect the seabed along the coastline to verify whether the seabed has been modified (check on dumping but also mines or improvised explosives).

The third family of robots is made of aerial drone UAV IT180 to carry out speedy reconnaissance flights and surveillance or inspection flights (chemical sensors, magnetometers, etc.) These IT180 mini drones are known to be very stable, robust even in very poor weather conditions. 

These different robots work is complementary and provide the operator with a complete status report. The operator can work safely from his “control tower” and act at a distance.
