Sonardyne Acoustics for Saab’s Sabertooth Hybrid Vehicle

Sonardyne International has delivered AvTrak 6 acoustic communications and navigation hardware to defence and security company Saab’s subsidiary Saab Seaeye.

Offered as an optional-fit sensor on the Sabertooth hybrid AUV/ROV, AvTrak 6 forms part of the vehicle’s integrated navigation and communications system.

AvTrak 6 combines the functions of an acoustic tracking transponder, transceiver and wireless modem link.

During missions, Sabertooth pilots use AvTrak 6 for AUV-to-vessel and AUV-to-AUV communications. This enables mission and status updates on operational vehicle parameters to be sent and received.

Alan MacDonald, sales manager for Sonardyne in Aberdeen said: “We are delighted to report this latest order and look forward to supporting Saab and their clients during vehicle delivery and operational commissioning.”
