AEUK announces ARCIMS order
Atlas Elektronik UK (AEUK) will supply its ARCIMS USV mission system to an unnamed customer under a contract announced on 21 February.
The contract will see the company deliver two ARCIMS vehicles equipped with an anti-submarine warfare (ASW) surveillance mission module.
The ASW module is designed to detect, classify and locate underwater threats such as submarines, mini-submarines and diver delivery vehicles. It gives navies the ability to patrol their littoral waters and conduct persistent monitoring of underwater activity for early detection of potential threats.
Antoni Mazur, managing director of AEUK, said: 'With this contract win AEUK will successfully integrate our sophisticated ASW mission system onto the modular platform which is ARCIMS. This demonstrates AEUK's ability to develop, supply and support cutting-edge, innovative technology for an increasing number of defence customers.'
The ARCIMS USV is a military specification 11m vehicle with a common platform design that is customisable for multiple mission roles.
