    For the first time in its presence at EXPONAVAL, Wärtsilä is revealing its Engine Room Simulator in Valparaíso this week and is focusing on “simulation and training solutions” in its information for visitors, in addition tom its range of engines.

    Whether the client seeks a single integrated system o a series of individual work stations, or wants to simulate engine or loading/unloading operations, Wärtsilä has a range of technically advanced solutions, according to load simulator instructor Luis Madariaga. The simulator can be either for a merchant ship or a warship. "What you want to simulate is loaded on the platform. It allows training in what the client wants. We are characterised by boat engines and those engines are now also being simulated in this Engine Room Simulator,” explained Mr Madariaga. The product is already installed in Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Panama and Brazil. International regulations require examinations conducted with a simulator, necessitating familiarity with the system over time.

    The company’s range of engines is also being highlighted at the show. They employ the latest advances in turbocharging, enabling use to be made of Miller cycle valves and variable rate closing of the intake valve, as well as efficient and environmentally acceptable combustion processes. The supply of equipment for naval fleets features, for example, controllable pitch propellers formed by a core, blades, a set of axes, a hydraulic system and a remote-control system. There are also fixed propellers featuring removable blades, which can be mounted on ocean patrol vessels that operate in frequently icing waters in operational areas with greater risk of damage to the propeller.

    Wärtsilä also offers electrical and automation systems and integrated bridge systems for military vessels, among other products.



    MBDA is using EXPONAVAL in Valparaíso this week to highlight the breadth of its weapons range. “The EXOCET is the most widely used in the region and the longest ranged: the SEA CEPTOR is very innovative and is used by both Chile and Brazil,” explains the company’s UK Head of Media Relations, Nick de Larrinaga.

    The Common Anti-air Modular Missile (CAMM), which recently entered service with the Chilean Navy in its Type 23 frigates, is a latest generation medium-range missile. The SEA CEPTOR does not require a specific tracking radar, reducing the load on the ship's defence system, but uses target indication data from the surveillance radar to offer high levels of protection in both open and coastal environments. It offers vertical soft launch (SVL), 360° coverage and a 25 km range.

    ASTER is an anti-missile and antiaircraft missile for combat vessels, providing for local area defence for escorts and fleet area defence. The vertical launch MICA VL can be used in both shore and naval platforms. The EXOCET MM40 Block 3 is a next generation long-range anti-ship missile system with a high level of launcher and logistic support commonality with the Block 1 and 2 versions. MARS is a next generation medium-range anti-ship missile, which can be launched from fixed- or rotary-wing airborn platforms or from vessels as small as 25m in length.

    The SEA VENOM/ANL is the most recent medium-range anti-ship missile. It can be launched against several types of surface targets. It is easily integrated into platforms that currently use SEA SKUA and AS15T. Plans exist for the integration of SEA VENOM/ANL onto the WILDCAT, PANTHER and NH90 helicopters.

    "MBDA is a company present in several countries and we have a good relationship with all of South America. The experience with the Chilean Navy is good because the Chilean Navy has a strong reputation and good professionalism,” explained Mr Larrinaga.



    At EXPONAVAL in Valparaíso this week, Chile’s national aeronautics company, ENAER, is promoting the entire catalogue of its capabilities and services. “We want to show our presence and our entire business portfolio at the fair. We are a company that provides maintenance and support to armed institutions. The Chilean Navy is a client of ours and we are here to offer our services and contribute with them in everything we can,” explained the company’s Head of Marketing and New Business, Jorge Flores.

    ENAER supports the Cessna CARAVAN 208 aircraft in Chilean Army service, as well as the CASA CN-235, CASA/Airbus C-212 and the MD-530 helicopter. The Chilean Air Force has worked jointly with ENAER on several projects such as depot maintenance for the KC-135E and anticorrosive treatment and special paint for the F-16.

    ENAER has an agreement with Airbus Defence & Space to support the C-212, CN-235 and C-295 in service with the Chilean Armed Forces (the Air Force still maintains two CS 212-200 and one in service C-212 300; the Army owns three CN-235 100M; the Navy three C-295) and other user countries in South America.

    ENAER is a solution provider for the C-130 HERCULES aircraft in South America and is a repair station certified by Lockheed Martin to provide MRO services on both C-130 and L-100.

    The company has also developed an important support capacity for Chile's F-5 aircraft, both for MRO for the cell, engine and components, as well as the manufacture of structural parts.

    In terms of construction, ENAER undertook the redesign of the T-35 PILLAN aircraft, maintaining its basic cell and incorporating innovative technological elements. “We continue to make progress in the development of the project,” Flores explained, awaiting an Air Force decision to build new T-35 aircraft.

    ENAER will also participate in maintenance of the air force’s S-70i fleet. In terms of engines, Rolls Royce recognises ENAER as a maintenance center for its T-56 engines.



    Brazilian manufacturer IACIT is highlighting the capabilities of its OTH 0100 over-the-horizon (OTH) radar at EXPONAVAL in Valparaíso this week.

    Using innovative surface wave technology and projecting radar energy beyond the curvature of the earth, the OTH 0100 allows operators to conduct surveillance operations beyond the ranges available to conventional radar systems. IACIT’s OTH 0100 is the only such radar in South America and allows for maritime surveillance ranges in the order of 370 kilometres. This means greater efficiency, since a given área can be covered with a smaller number of radars.

    The system uses adaptative digital beam forming and HF frequency energy to provide reliable, persistent area coverage, employing a unique system of interference elimination techniques to ensure coverage is independent of meteorogical or sea conditions. In addition, the system can detect vessels that are not broadcasting AIS signals – known in the maritime policing business as “non-cooperative” vessels. This assists in the detection and prevention of potentially hostile acts such as smuggling, piracy or human trafficking.

    “IACIT has developed a unique, indispensable technology for countries that have maritime threats: with the OTH radar, maritime surveillance has become more efficient,” commented company President, Luiz Texeira.

      Israel Shipyards is showcasing a family of ships and proven combat solutions featuring high manoeuvrability at EXPONAVAL 2018 in Valparaíso this week. Among the solutions installed in these ships are state-of-the-art weapons systems as well as advanced C2 systems, electro-optics and night vision.

      The shipyard is showcasing two models from its SHALDAG family of fast patrol vessels: the SHALDAG MK II and SHALDAG MK V. Both are built of maritime aluminum, propelled by water jet, with a speed exceeding 40kts, even in turbulent waters. They feature high manoeuvrability and minimal draft, allowing for operations in shallow water. The SHALDAG MK II is designed for coastal and riverine operations, while the SHALDAG MK V is, among other things, designed for protection missions in the Exclusive Economic Zone.

      In South America, for example, the Naval Prefecture of Argentina already has four MK IIs. "It is a versatile platform adaptable to the realities of Latin America. The weapon system can be adapted under its logistic condition. The experience with Argentina is excellent from both sides. It is a client with a lot of technological capacity,” a company representative told MONCh.

      Also on display is the Coastal Patrol Ship (OPV) with a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure, capable of transits at over 32 knots. The weapon control stations and navigation systems are installed on the bridge, allowing for centralized C2.

      "Customer satisfaction is our top priority and, therefore, we try to provide a complete, integrated, fast and flexible system. We provide the ship in addition to all the systems required to be installed on the ship as needed. Our products, which are of the highest quality and delivered quickly, are customised according to the unique needs and requirements of our customers,” affirmed Israel Shipyards’ CEO, Eitan Zucker.



      Interview with Paltiel Bichman, Director, Marketing & Business Development, Air & Missile Defense Systems Division, Systems Missiles & Space Group of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI)

      MONCh: Why is BARAK 8 ideal for Latin American navies?

      P. Bichman: BARAK 8 air and missile defence system and the BARAK MX family are an ideal solution suited to Latin American navies as well as the rest of the world. BARAK MX, in its naval application, is the ideal solution for navies looking for efficient and cost effective systems, high end technologies but proven solutions, for a wide variety of threats and scenarios. The whole BARAK MX solution offers a very comprehensive solution for the whole defence suite of a modern warship, being it a corvette, frigate or larger ships.

      MONCh: Which are the possibly unique regional threats that BARAK 8 address in Latin America?

      P. Bichman: BARAK MX offers a combination of air and missile defence system against existing and future threats, appearing in the Latin American operational theatre, covering simultaneously aerial and missile threats from different ranges in saturation scenarios providing optimised response to fighter aircraft, helicopters, UAS, cruise missiles, land-air and land-land missiles.

      MONCh: IAI is well-respected for working in partnership with customer nations’ indigenous industries. How will this be possible in Latin America with BARAK 8 as it was in India?

      P. Bichman: We observe in Latin America, the need to establish industrial cooperation and we have already identified potential partners with which we are exploring the opportunities and capabilities for coproduction, maintenance and more. We understand the need for local production as part of the benefit of the local industry and we take under consideration transfer of technology – this is something IAI has done in India as mentioned and also in other areas of the world like Brazil for example and more.

      MONCh: What are the advantages of choosing BARAK 8 over a US, Russian, Chinese or French LR/MR-SAM?

      P. Bichman: BARAK MX is a complete solution, covering needs that were previously answered by several systems, all now in one system. One system that is based on cutting edge technologies but already mature and proven and not less important – an affordable system scalable in accordance with the customer's needs and limitations onboard a single ship or even at the level of force construction strategic plans. As an operationally flexible system, the BARAK MX allows choosing the radar and the interceptor type according to the type of threat and type of mission at hand. The operational decisions regarding the BARAK MX are taken based on the threat, missions and resources characterising the specific situation. The system’s modular nature allows customers to start with basic configuration and scale up gradually and quickly according to operational and budget needs.

      MONCh: How easy is it to integrate BARAK 8 into a legacy SAM defence system?

      P. Bichman: In cases of navies looking for an upgrade in their existing fleet capabilities, BARAK MX can be installed and integrated onboard existing vessels, combined for example with existing legacy radars and CMSs and requiring relatively small deck area and volume within small ships. Moreover, in the future the same system could be reinstalled onboard future vessels to be acquired by those navies. For future vessels constructions, BARAK MX offers a very compact solution, adaptable to different ships' sizes, including very advanced radar

      Airbus’ presence at EXPONAVAL 2018 embraces both its Helicopters and its Defence and Space divisions.

      From the former comes the H125 helicopter, present in model formo n the booth and in the static display, while a model of the VSR700 drone from Airbus Defence and Space, designed for surveillance and identification missions at ranges of up to 199 nm, also drew substantial attention.

      “The Chilean Navy has a need to maintain a particular capacity and for this type of mission the H125 is entirely suited, due to its operational efficiency and versatility. Airbus has a long history of cooperation with the Navy: we have 20 helicopters flying in the naval air fleet, and have made ourselves available to the Navy, presenting the helicopter not as a product but as an integrated solution. And we have presented the support capabilities of the company, which has its own presence in Chile. We therefore believe that, with all these elements, ours is an ideal solution for the requirements of the Navy,” commented General Manager of Airbus Helicopters Chile, Jerome Ronssin, referencing the service’s programme for recpaitalisation of the medium helicopter fleet. He added that a service centre was recently opened in Santiago. “We have confirmed the presence we started 17 years ago, in 2001, when Airbus Helicopters decided to settle in the region and establish its regional base in Santiago de Chile. And four months ago, we finally installed ourselves with a new maintenance and instruction centre.”

      Currently, the Chilean Navy operates 20 Airbus helicopters, among which are the H215 SUPER PUMA and the AS365 DAUPHIN. Naval Aviation also has three C295 PERSUADER aircraft configured as maritime patrol and antisubmarine warfare platforms. Regarding the VSR700 aircraft, Ronssin estimates that “its size is small enough to be carried on most ships that carry helicopters. We believe that it can be a reference in the world.”

      Airbus Defense and Space, meanwhile, showcased different versions of the C295, an ideal aircraft for maritime surveillance operations and border control, among others. A total of twelve aircraft of the company’s light and medium transport family – including the three C295s mentioned above – are currently in service supporting Chile’s armed forces.

      Es cierto lo que dice el representante, he visto personalmente el nuevo edificio vidriado de Airbus en el Aeródromo de Tobalaba y es algo que destaca entre todos los demás establecimientos y compañias allí establecidas.

      During EXPONAVAL 2018 in Valparaíso this week, Atech – an Embraer company – has been showcasing the Naval Tactical Data Management System (N-TDMS) it has developed for the H225M/H-XBR SUPER COUGAR helicopters in Brazilian Navy service.

      The N-TDMS is responsible for managing the information obtained by the aircraft’s sensors and compiling the corresponding tactical framework in order to assist the operator and the pilots in their decision-making processes. N-TDMS will also integrate sensor data with the helicopter's AM39 EXOCET weapon system.

      The H-XBR N-TDMS programme began in 2012, a partnership between Airbus Defence & Space and Atech. The Brazilian company was co-responsible for the development of the N-TDMS software, as well as being entirely responsible for development of the sensor and weapon simulation models and for conducting system evaluation tests.

      The company also conducted the design, development and assembly process for the tactical console installed on the aircraft. Programme compliance required Atech to create a dedicated laboratory for serial production. After delivery of the aircraft to the Brazilian Navy, Atech will continue to be involved with N-TDMS technical support and maintenance.

      “With the completed N-TDMS, Atech consolidates its position as an experienced supplier in the development of tactical systems shipped to the Brazilian armed forces," commented Atech's Business Director, Giacomo Staniscia.

      In addition to H-XBR, the company is involved in the following programmes: the F-X2 GRIPEN NG fighter; the P-3BR maritime surveillance aircraft; and the E99 airborne surveillance aircraft. Its participation involves the development of combat systems, mission execution support, simulation and training, the construction of tactical consoles and technology transfer programmes.

      Ven a la ACh como un posible nuevo cliente de Super Cougar que integre dichos sistemas. El tiempo lo dirá, pero la opción no es mala.



      Emphasising the fact that its technologies allow naval forces to counteract any threat in complex maritime environments, Saab focused the attention of visitors to its EXPONAVAL 2018 booth on its 9LV combat management system (CMS).

      Presented in detail at one of the technical conference sessions in Valparaíso, the 9LV suite offers complete C4I capabilities for naval vessels of any size and nature, from fast patrol boats through frigates to aircraft carriers as well as submarines. Providing naval forces with multi-mission operational capabilities, the Swedish company offers three different packages, tailored to platform- and mission-specific requirements: the 9LV Combat System (9LV CS); 9LV Combat Management System (9LV CMS); and 9LV Fire Control System (9LV FCS).

      Also on show was the EOS-500 shot detection system, a stabilised optronic tracking system. Designed for use in all naval ships, it features high quality stabilization: advanced TV and IR cameras and a laser range finder provide operators with an efficient solution for observation, target identification, gun fire and missile laser guidance. Capable of detecting a wide range of threats, the EOS-500 can also be integrated into any modern multifunction console.
