SERO 250

Simple, rapid and cost effective retrofit solution for any submarine

Capabilities

  • Monitor surface and air activity
  • Collect navigational data and to detect and identify targets
  • Video signals for parallel observation
  • Enables a simple, rapid and cost effective retrofit into any submarine platform
    • ‘drop-in’ installation through the existing hull penetration
    • retaining the existing bearings, seals and hydraulic hoist mechanisms
  • Integration into a submarine Combat Management System for remote control capability possible

Description

The periscope system enables the user to monitor surface and air activity, in order to collect navigational data and to detect and identify targets. The system also provides video signals for parallel observation either on Bulkhead mounted display, CMS or with a stand alone console. The SERO 250 design philosophy has been conditioned by the requirement to enable a simple, rapid and cost effective retrofit into any submarine platform.

To achieve this, Hensoldt has engineered a straightforward ‘drop-in’ installation through the existing hull penetration, in order to avoid the need for hull modifications and thereby retaining the existing bearings, seals and hydraulic hoist mechanisms. All SERO 250 Human Machine Interface (HMI) functionality resides on a compact ocular box display unit, which is mounted directly below the Direct View binocular eyepiece. This self-contained unit includes system settings, camera displays, target information, system status, and communication. As an option, a remote HMI console display can be fitted to a bulkhead mount. The SERO 250 can also be integrated into a submarine Combat Management System for remote control capability

Main Benefits

The SERO 250 is available in an attack and search version, SERO 250 A and SERO 250 S.

This allows submarines to easily adjust to changing operational conditions and to fulfil complex requirements for reconnaissance, surveillance and intelligence gathering. One of our key targets was to reduce the need for major structural modifications on the boat, for instance using existing hoisting mechanisms, bearings, seals, etc.

To ease integration the SERO 250 can be operationed as a stand-alone system or be integrated into existing or renewed Combat Management Systems.The periscope system enables the user to monitor surface and air activity, to collect navigational data and to detect and identify targets. It also provides video signals for parallel observation either on CMS or with a stand-alone console.

The SERO 250 can be enhanced with improved night vision capability through the addition of an IR camera as an add-on module.
