AUV62-AT Target Gains Another Customer
Saab announced in early March that its AUV62-AT advanced anti-submarine warfare (ASW) training system has been selected by an unidentified customer, with deliveries to be completed by 2018.
AUV62-AT, recently demonstrated during the UK’s “Unmanned Warrior 2016” exercise off Scotland, is an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) system for cost-efficient training of a navy’s ASW forces. Itis an acoustic target that mimics a submarine in a manner compatible with any torpedo or ASW sonar system currently available and replaces the need to use a submarine as a manoeuvring training target.
Carl-Marcus Remén, sales director at business unit Underwater Systems within Saabs business area Dynamics, commented that the system, “ensures the entire ASW force can receive high quality training from start to finish.”
