Diver Signature Evaluation System (DSES)

The New Zealand Defence Force's Defence Technology Agency (DTA) has developed a system for evaluating diver performance when attempting to identify and deactivate mines. It is intended that AAL take on the task to commercialise the system for delivery to the Royal New Zealand Navy.

The DSES uses sensors and electronic systems mounted in a fibre glass Manta mine shape. Data is collected and transferred to a seabed computer via a fifty metre cable from the mine shape. Control, power and data are transferred via a one hundred and fifty metre cable from the sea bed computer to a vessel, typically a Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB), on the surface for recording and analysis.

An under water video camera is also cabled from the sea bed computer to observe and record diver operations.
