Saab to supply autonomous underwater training vehicles


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Saab
: 18 January, 2013  (Application Story)
The order received by the Swedish defence company is for artificial acoustic targets that are used for training in the use of autonomous underwater vehicle systems

Defence and security company Saab has signed a contract on delivery of autonomous underwater vehicles systems, AUV62, in training configuration.

The order has a total value of MSEK 269 and comprises supply and long term maintenance and support of AUV62, the latest version of the advanced training target for Anti Submarine Warfare (ASW) training.

“We are very proud of the confidence our customers place in the AUV62 system and are satisfied to have been able to secure this order for the system.” says Görgen Johansson, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Area Dynamics.

The industry’s nature is such that depending on circumstances concerning the product and customer, information regarding the customer will not be announced.

The AUV62 is an advanced and highly modern and capable system for cost-efficient training of a navy’s ASW forces. The AUV62 is an artificial acoustic target that mimics a submarine in a way that is compatible with any torpedo- and sonar system on the market today. The AUV62 system fully replaces the use of a submarine in the role as a manoeuvring training target. With the AUV62 Saab offers a state-of-the-art training capability for demanding customers investing in the future.

System deliveries will take place during 2014 and 2015, followed by long term maintenance and support of the systems.
