Saab has secured an order for deliveries of the Sabertooth autonomous underwater vehicle/remotely operated vehicle (AUV/ROV) to an unnamed client.
Deliveries will take place during 2018, the company informed.
With this contract, the customer has ordered the first vehicles in a planned fleet of Sabertooth vehicles.
Under the agreement, Saab and the customer will work together to further develop the vehicle and its applications in the field of subsea inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR), survey and intervention work.
“We are pleased to have received this order for an initial number of systems. We will work closely together with the customer as they implement the system and we look forward to supporting them with their strategic focus and continued growth,” said Görgen Johansson, head of Saab’s business area Dynamics.
The contract comprises a suite of advanced survey sensors. The Sabertooth system has been configured to allow additional sensors, which can be quickly integrated to meet project specific applications.
