Following the invitation from the University of Pisa at the last DII Talks (Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione), attended by the entire second-year Telecommunication Engineering postgraduate course, DRASS held a seminar in which its main activities were introduced, its two fields of development: Commercial Diving and Defence. The conference had a particular focus on technology applied for exterior communications and sonar processing on submarines.
The general architecture and typical communication standards of exterior communication systems in civil and military field was described, including GMDSS system (Global Maritime Safety System), ALE3G (Automatic Link Establishment) and the use of SDR (Software-defined Radio) for military communication.
In addition, the sonar processing architecture and its functionality of detection, tracking and analysis of tracks was discussed, going into detail on the techniques such as DEMON (Demodulation of Envelope Modulation On Noise) and LOFAR (Low-Frequency Analysis and Recording).

DRASS Green Campaign

We continue to honour our pledge to the environment by becoming greener each year!
We are doing this through the promotion and application of a very ambitious campaign entitled 'Environmental Footprint: DRASS Engagement', with various sub-projects currently in development. Through one such project, 'Plastic-Free', DRASS aims to significantly reduce the use of plastics and Co2 emissions. To this end, DRASS has installed additional water coolers throughout its communal areas, dispensing both still and sparkling water. In tandem with this, one of the DRASS Christmas gifts to each member of staff was an aluminium water flask.
This is one of many green initiatives, and we are pleased to see how it has been welcomed by one and all!
