UDT Europe 2008 to cover harbour security.

UDT Europe : 02 May, 2008  (New Product)
A range of papers to be presented at this years UDT Europe themed on harbour and water front security.
UDT Europe 2008, which this year will be held at the purpose built SECC, Glasgow, from 10th - 12th of June 2008, has released details of the wide ranging subjects that they will be covering in their conference programme, which will include Maritime Security and Force Protection.

The Maritime Security and Force Protection Sessions will be held over 2 days, and will consist of 4 separate sessions and one poster session.

The first session on Development of Equipment for Diver Detection in Harbours, will be
held on Tuesday 10th June, from 14.00 and will include:.

- "From Concept to Acceptance" - A paper presented by Sonardyne UK outlining the key initial design decisions made for the Sentinel Intruder Detection Sonar and how they helped the system move from concept prototype through to production.

- "Diver Detection Sonar X-Type' - A paper presented by Oceanscan UK discussing how the 'X-Type' has been designed with high angular resolution and broadband correlation compression of received signals, and will show some examples.

- "Critical Operational Analysis of Diver Detection Sonar Systems" - A paper presented by DSIT Solutions, Israel investigating the operational parameters necessary for a successful Diver Detection Sonar system.

Integrated Port Security Systems will be on Tuesday 10th June, from 16.00 and will

- "Harbour Shield: A New technique for Inspection of Vessels Below the Waterline" - A paper presented by the Naval Underwater Warfare Centre, USA showing how they have developed techniques to optimise image extraction from the single side-scan sensor deployed, and are beginning to explore designs for a single transmitter/multiple-receiver sonar system.

- "Network Centric Harbour Protection and Surveillance System Demonstration" - A paper presented by TietoSaab Systems Oy, Finland describing the demonstration in November of a network centric harbour protection and surveillance system and the basic results.

- "Integrated Coastal and Harbour Surveillance" - A paper presented by Raytheon Anschutz, Germany, discussing how the returning signals of the generation of a comprehensive situational picture, creates images differing in range and resolution.

On Thursday 12th June, from 11.00 the session on Port Security Surveillance Systems, will cover:.

- "Underwater Monostatic Acoustic Barrier" - A paper presented by R&D Marine Technology Centre, Poland, presenting an approach to underwater protection, focused on a wideband monostatic acoustic barrier (MAB) the primary purpose of which is detection and localisation of the floating objects.

- "Underwater RF Fence" - A paper presented by WFS, United Kingdom, looking at solutions to the increasing need to protect high value assets in ports and harbours or in offshore anchorages where
stationary vessels are vulnerable to attack by terrorist or enemy Special Forces.

- "Detection of Drifting Mines and Other Types of Assymetric Threats with the Application of
Magnetic Barriers" - A paper presented by R&D Marine Technology Centre, Poland, discussing solutions to the detection of threats of drifting improvised explosive devices.

Use of Sonar in Underwater Harbour Surveillance, will be on Thursday 10th June, from 16.00 and will be chaired by Mr Bernard Garnier, Thales Naval, France. It will include:.

- "Examples of the Combined Use of Active and Passive Sonar for Underwater Harbour Surveillance" - A paper presented by Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, Norway, discussing the possible improvements in combined used of active and passive sonar technology for harbour surveillance or fleet protection.

- "Underwater Acoustics for Harbour Protection" - A paper presented by Thales Underwater Systems SAS, France, detailing a passive sonar detector developed by Thales Underwater Systems that provides an additional detection capability able to detect fast boats & jet skis. Experimental results of SECMAR project are presented.

- "Combining Active and Passive Sonar for Harbour Defence" - A paper presented by the Naval Undersea Warfare Centre, USA presenting the results of work, conducted to date, to enhance the ability to accurately detect and track both swimmers and divers utilizing passive and active sonar.

There will also be a Poster Session, on Thursday 10th June, in the Exhibition Hall, from 12.30 to 14.00, and will include:.

- "Technologies Challenges and Needs in Harbour Surveillance" - A paper presented by GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms, Canada, and UK, looking at the newest approaches to acquire and process high frequency sonar signals and the benefits over older traditional approaches.

- "Mine Warfare and Force Protection - New Approaches" - A paper presented by COE CSW - Centre of Excellence for Operations in Confined and Shallow Waters, Germany, looking at the challenges for armed forces to the effective protection of maritime units during operations.
