A complete solution for naval operations centres
Many navies rely on a shore based infrastructure to ensure nationwide situation awareness, territorial integrity and MCC. This requires 24/7 readiness operating in peacetime under budgetary constraints but also an ability to rapidly respond to changes in the political and operational environment.
9Maritime SOCS provides a common operational picture, intelligence management and operative planning and tasking. It also provides tools for military unit registers, order of battle and equipment and battle space object registers.
9Maritime SOCS also includes support for tactical surveillance, control and analysis of vessel movements. The main purpose is to detect, monitor, track and record maritime activities within an assigned geographical area. 9Maritime SOCS uses Saab’s Track Data Fusion Engine (TDFE) to provide a real-time recognised maritime picture and also includes automatic surveillance to support the operator in detecting vessels with e.g. suspicious speed or course approaching sea lanes or entering an area.
The system is built on standardised Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) products, designed for applications with high availability and reliability requirements. The modular systems design simplifies upgrades and addition of new functions. A flexible communications plug-in architecture provides the means to use a wide range of sensors. More workstations and servers can easily be added as required.
