The potential of asymmetric maritime threats is growing. Asymmetric threats take the form of terrorism, organized crime, drug smuggling and human trafficking. By their very nature, these dangers are extremely difficult to identify; they also require especially rapid response times of the defence systems, making timely detection a critical success factor.
The new ATLAS protection system ASCA® (ATLAS Security for Coastal Areas) considers the specific requirements of the diverse application environments through its extremely scalable and modular architecture. Thanks to the versatile configuration possibilities with underwater and surface sensors, an optimal situation picture can be generated for any local or regional needs. Starting with the protection of naval ports or other critical infrastructures up to the full surveillance of entire coastal regions and the EEZs extending up to 200 sea miles, ASCA® is able to cover all the necessary tactical, operational and strategic missions.
