Saab bags contract for ASW training system delivery

  • Authorities

Swedish defence and security company Saab announced it has received an order for delivery of the AUV62-AT anti-submarine warfare training system.

The company said deliveries would take place during 2017 and 2018 but did not disclose the customer.

AUV62-AT was recently displayed and tested in the UK Royal Navy´s military exercise and demonstration Unmanned Warrior, held in Scotland and Wales.

The AUV62-AT is an acoustic target that mimics a submarine in a way that is compatible with any torpedo- and ASW sonar system on the market today.

Saab says this system will replace the need to use of a submarine in the role as a maneuvering training target.

“This a further proof of AUV62-AT as the world leading system for anti-submarine warfare training,” Carl-Marcus Remén, sales director at business unit Underwater Systems within Saabs business area Dynamics, said. “With the system the customer will be able to train in a more cost efficient and flexible way since the navy don´t need to use own vital assets like submarines as ASW training targets. It ensures the entire ASW force can receive high quality training from start to finish.”
