Saab to provide ASW Training System to Royal Navy

Saab will provide the UK Royal Navy with its AUV62-AT anti-submarine warfare training system. The company received the order together with UK-based QinetiQ.

AUV62-AT provides real-time warfare exposure to the ASW units of Naval Forces. The training system helps ASW units to conduct cost-efficient training activities, while avoiding the use of submarines.

It resembles a real submarine in a range of ASW scenarios and can be deployed in operator training activities, as well as the evaluation of sonar and other command control systems. The procurement follows a period of testing and evaluation together with QinetiQ and the Royal Navy.
