US Navy considers AUV62-AT

16th January 2018 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Navy will evaluate Saab’s AUV62-AT anti-submarine warfare (ASW) training system this summer under the Foreign Comparative Testing (FCT) programme.

The AUV62-AT is an artificial acoustic system that mimics a submarine. The navy will evaluate the system’s suitability as a replacement for its current ASW training system for its Undersea Warfare Training Range.

The AUV62-AT package trains operators in submarine surveillance, detection, identification, classification and target engagement. The system mimics a submarine in a way that is compatible with any torpedo and sonar system on the market today, fully replacing the use of a submarine in the role as a manoeuvring training target. It can be launched from a ship, submarine or shore.

The demonstration is planned for summer 2018, with an option to continue testing into 2019.
