Swedish Defense Material Administration Picks Saab for Anti-Submarine Warfare Training

Saab LogoSweden’s defense material administration has placed an order to Saab for anti-submarine warfare training and the AUV62-AT autonomous underwater vehicle to support the Swedish armed forces’ underwater operations.

Saab will provide the AUV62-AT with ASW training configuration and additional support and maintenance to the client from 2016 to 2019, the company said Wednesday.

Anne-Marie Vosu, Saab’s underwater systems business unit head, said the order works to facilitate an increase in the Swedish navy’s capabilities to provide its units with ASW training.

The AUV62-AT is a training system used by the U.S. Navy‘s ASW forces and is designed to mimic submarines to support torpedo and sonar system compatibility.
