Finnish technology company Image Soft announced the launch of the third-generation Underwater Surveillance System (UNWAS). This upgraded system offers highly automated, cost-efficient, and environmentally sustainable 24/7/365 surveillance and protection of underwater pipelines, subsea cables, and crucial ports and harbors, Image Soft said in a press release.

Matti Suuronen, CEO of Image Soft, commented: “We are proud to be launching our stateoftheart maritime surveillance system at UDT 2023. Our new product is a result of years of investment in research in algorithms and signal processing and it also leverages our long experience in underwater warfare simulators. In today’s geopolitical environment, UNWAS perfectly meets the urgent need to defend and monitor both national maritime borders as well as key underwater infrastructure”.

The third-generation UNWAS system is equipped with a passive sensor network that detects and warns of both underwater and surface threats, including divers, submarines, AUVs, ROVs, and underwater drones. The system operates effectively in various challenging environments, such as the Baltic and North Seas, and tropical waters.

According to Image Soft company, the new version of UNWAS system features a new digital electronics and software suite incorporating the latest advancements in neural networks and machine learning. Its deep learning capabilities enable smart software to recognize threats, such as a mini submarine hiding under a noisy civilian cargo ship, and alert harbor authorities of unauthorized divers during busy operations. The innovative system offers a crucial defense for national maritime borders and key underwater infrastructure.

In addition to the third-generation of UNWAS system, Image Soft offers comprehensive simulator solutions, such as Underwater Surveillance and Tactical Training Simulator and Full Mission Bridge Simulator for Arctic Conditions.
