Saab has received an order for delivery of the advanced anti-submarine warfare training system, AUV62-AT. Deliveries will take place during 2017 and 2018.
The autonomous underwater vehicle system AUV62-AT is an advanced and capable system for cost-efficient training of a navy’s ASW forces. 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. This system will replace the need to use of a submarine in the role as a maneuvering training target. With the AUV62-AT Saab offers a state-of-the-art training capability for demanding customers investing in the future.
“This a further proof of AUV62-AT as the world leading system for anti-submarine warfare training. 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”, says Carl-Marcus Remén, sales director at business unit Underwater Systems within Saabs business area Dynamics.
Saab recently displayed and operated the AUV62-AT in the UK Royal Navy´s military exercise and demonstration, Unmanned Warrior, held in Scotland and Wales.
