Saab contracted for Swedish Navy’s A26 submarine torpedo integration systems

Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) has contracted Saab for the development and production of torpedo integration systems (TIS) for the Swedish Navy’s new A26 submarines.

According to the company, the order also includes an upgrade of existing systems on the Visby-class corvettes and Gotland-class submarines.

Deliveries are to take place during the period 2017-2020.

The contract will see Saab construct, produce and verify torpedo integration systems for the two A26 submarines which were ordered by the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration in 2015. The contract also includes options for future upgrade orders.

“With this contract, the Swedish Navy will have modern torpedo integration systems on their submarines and corvettes to ensure a continued and modern operation of the existing torpedo systems,” says Anne-Marie Vösu, head of business unit underwater systems within Saab business area dynamics.

“With the new systems, the corvettes and submarines will also be prepared for the Swedish Navy´s new lightweight torpedo, ordered in 2016 and now under development by Saab. The systems also supports the integration of Saab´s AUV´s and ROV´s on the platforms,” Vösu added.
