The engineering and technology group SENER will attend as an exhibitor the DSEI exhibition, the world’s largest defense and security event, which is held from September 10-13 at the ExCeL convention center in London.

SENER’s Engineering and Construction division will present at the exhibition new developments and projects in two large fields of activity: the naval sector and the defense sector.

Along the naval sector, SENER will show its new developments in the FORAN system, the CAD/CAM software for the construction of ship and offshore devices that is licensed in more than 150 shipyards and technical design offices and is one of the most used software systems in this sector. It covers all the design disciplines in a single integrated solution and offers a modular structure. The series of frigates F-310 built at Navantia for the Norwegian Navy, the Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) for the Spanish Navy, also built by the said Spanish group, and the border guard ship P-22460 for Russia, designed by Severnoye Design Bureau, have been designed and built using FORAN; the same applies to the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carrier for the Royal Navy that is being built at the British shipyards BAE Submarines, BAE Surface Ships and Babcok Marine.

In defense, SENER will present engineering and production projects of Actuation and Control Systems (ACS) for missile applications, an activity in which SENER is a benchmark in Europe and a leading company in Spain, as well as ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Recognition) applications and Integrated Systems. Among the system integration programs that will be shown at the company’s booth stand are, in systems integration, the TAURUS KEPD 350 program, a long-range missile, for which the company has developed serial production of several hundred units of the FASS (Fin Actuation SubSystem), and in which it is also the prime contractor in the acquisition program of the F-18 hornet for the Spanish Air Force, which includes integration with the aircraft, supply of missiles and land support equipment. In this field the company will also present its short-range missile IRIS-T in both its versions, air-to-air AA and surface launch SL, in which SENER is the design authority and sole supplier of the control section for the entire production process, for which it also provides assistance and support for the integration of the AA version in the EF-18 aircraft of the Spanish Air Force. It will also give an insight in the RBS 70 NG system, the new generation of the VSHORAD (Very Short Range Air Defense) system and in the actuation and control systems of the European METEOR program, the worldwide most advanced long range air-to-air missile, in which SENER has developed, and currently produces, the fin actuation subsystem (FAS), as well as the Naval Strike Missile (NSM) program, a surface anti-ship missile, usable both in oceanic and coastal waters. Finally, concerning ISR applications, SENER will be showcasing its work as responsible supplier of the optical instrument of the SEOSAT/INGENIO satellite, the Spanish Earth Observation Satellite.

During the past 45 years, SENER has supplied equipment to the defense and security, space, and aeronautics and vehicles markets, providing also systems integration and engineering services. In all these areas, it has succeeded in achieving a progressive increase in the level of responsibility. For this reason, the company deals currently with more and more complex systems and has also been awarded contracts of increasingly greater economic value.

Likewise, the development of the FORAN software started 45 years ago and today the company still continues making great efforts in order to innovate and upgrade it, year after year, to ensure that FORAN remains the most comprehensive and advanced shipbuilding system available on the market.
