20th October 2016 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab has acquired Danish naval company Nordic Defence Industries (NDI), the company announced on 18 October.

NDI designs and manufactures mine disposal charge systems for the naval defence industry, such as Damdic, a charge designed to be carried to the mine by a remotely operated vehicle. The company’s acquisition will expand Saab’s offerings in the unmanned underwater domain, enabling it to offer end-to-end solutions for the detection, classification, identification and disposal of maritime mines. 

Görgen Johansson, head of business area Dynamics, said: ‘With the acquisition we are strengthening our position in the mine counter measures market, building a foundation for continued profitable growth. Our regional footprint will be strengthened as well as our role as a global supplier of mine counter measure solutions.’

NDI will be integrated into Saab’s business area Dynamics within its Underwater Systems business unit. Its main office and workshops will remain in Aalborg Denmark.
