TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION STRATEGY


Defence and Security TECNALIA is a multi-sector industrial innovation centre with over 1,500 researchers and 50 years' experience. TECNALIA accesses Defence & Security sectors with the dual aim of: introducing technological innovation from other sectors to defence and exploiting defence assets in multi-sector applications. This approach to the sector as a transfer agent aims to help suppliers as well as defence institutions and centres to generate business and diversify products and markets. At the same time our skills as technology suppliers will enable them to innovate products and processes.

AREAS OF EXPERTISE Platforms

Simulation & Training

This area focuses its activity on technology development for air, land and sea platforms and related information and communication systems. The team has developed tactical airborne platforms for sea and coastal surveillance UAV (FULMAR), automatic adaptation and guidance for land vehicles UGV (LIRON PLATINO) and offshore platforms UUV (RAMSES). Augmented vision and image processing systems have also been developed as well as components for satellite communications in vehicles such as antennas or inertial platforms. Novel light armour materials based on composite-ceramic multi-layers have been specifically developed for defence and security platforms. In on-board avionics the team has a critical SW development methodology enabling certification and reuse.

This activity is focused on developing simulations for training and decision-making support in operational actions. We develop low-cost simulators for air and sea scenarios as well as ground deployments based on operation planning with intelligent agents and exploratory techniques. We have 3D planners for troop deployment as well as simulation tools which can be used in emergency scenario management. We analyse future scenario foresight for the Strategic Research Institute of the Ministry of Defence.

Personal Equipment This area focuses its activity on offering technological solutions for fighters and first responders in crisis-emergency situations. In particular, our product lines are as follows: • Portable chemical and biological sensors and filters. • New materials for personal protection such as CB4-CERPRO ceramics validated at STANAG level IV. • Radio terminals and mobile inhibitors. • Assistive robotics. Exoskeleton. 4

Infrastructure The area includes TECNALIA skills and products to protect critical infrastructures as well as industrial security driven technologies. We develop fire risk infrastructure simulators, fire propagation models, airborne and water-borne chemical propagation models, research on building resilience to earthquakes and/or explosions. These models are supplemented by monitoring devices and evacuation simulators. We also develop technologies for Access Control: biometrics, fingerprint and iris identification and digital identity assurance systems. Moreover, counter-measure systems such as explosionproof plates and robust systems against cyber-attacks which are applicable to industrial security at Scada level are addressed. This area also includes the development of innovation models for public and private security operators.
