ECA Group solutions to be presented at INDO PACIFIC 2022
In the naval field, ECA Group offers a wide range of innovative and comprehensive technological solutions to face current and future challenges. Constantly innovating to improve the capabilities and performance of its systems, ECA Group supports the Naval Forces to carry out ever more complex missions in hostile or restrictive environments.
ECA Group offers interoperable systems capable of tackling the most demanding Mine CounterMeasures. The first to materialise the stand-off concept, meaning that it places both crews and equipment away from the danger zone, ECA Group has developed a comprehensive system composed of a range of drones that fulfil all phases of mine clearance missions at sea: detection, classification, identification and neutralisation.
Already in use within several navies, ECA Group systems efficiently locate and identify underwater threats, while allowing crews to stay at a stand-off distance from the minefield.
UMISTM – MCM turnkey solution
UMISTM the Unmanned MCM Integrated System is an innovative and complete robotic system dedicated to MCM, composed of ECA Group naval drones (USVs, UUVs, ROVs,) and towed sonars. Operations are conducted via a unique interface, using an advanced Command & Control System as well as a dedicated software suite, UMISOFTTM.
UMISOFTTMenables to manage parallel drones missions, robot-from/on-robot deployment (such as USV deploying and retrieving a UUV) as well as automatic launch and recovery systems (LARS from USVs) and can be integrated into the combat management system (CMS) of the vessel (MCMV).
UMISTM is scalable and can be integrated onboard specialised vessels or non-dedicated ships. Its containerised version, UMIS in the Box, can be deployed from the ships or directly from shore since it is both road and air transportable.
Carrying, deploying and recovering autonomous underwater vehicles by surface drones significantly increases the navies’ range and speed of action, which is otherwise limited by their onboard energy.
It is the ideal solution for Navies and Homeland Protection operators engaged in battlefields and survey or intervention missions at sea.
Unmanned Naval drones
For operations at sea, ECA Group has been developing state-of-the-art robotic systems to facilitate operator's missions and reduce missions' duration while providing high-quality data and high performance.
ECA Group naval drones can detect, classify, locate, identify and neutralize threats at sea. A wide range of unmanned or remotely operated vehicles is available to reduce human exposure to danger. This includes:
- Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs)
- Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs)
- Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
- Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs)
Already used by several renowned Navies, these systems have proven their performance, especially in Mine CounterMeasures activities.
Submarine equipment & Protection
ECA Group offers a wide range of equipment that can operate in challenging environments, including equipment for ships, submarines and their crew: it ranges from platform management, to control & command systems, as well as propulsion & energy systems.
Magnetic Risk Management
Propulsion & Energy Converters for submarine
ECA Group's propulsion and energy conversion solutions are sea proven and in service within several navies. These highly robust systems can be integrated onto different platforms - nuclear or conventional – and are compatible with any type of submarine design.
The integration of complex electrical networks and use of the latest technologies, such as silicon carbide chips, guarantee unparalleled performance and operators’ safety.
Steering & Diving Consoles & Simulators
ECA Group is also an expert of Steering and Diving Consoles, a generic sea proven product that manages the 3D motion of submarines, by controlling diving planes and rudder. Its open and modular architecture allows the consoles to be adaptable to any submarine design and integrates the laws of silent piloting.
Increasing the performance, skills and capabilities of the crews, ECA Group’s simulators recreate accurately the equipment's behaviour as in real underwater conditions. Crews can thus learn how to fix breakdowns without damaging the submarine, which better ensures experience and anticipation of potential technical difficulties and risks.
