This order is one of the terms included in the Letter of Intent covering Swedish armed forces’ underwater capabilities that was signed on 9 June 2014 and refers to the period 2015-2024. Neither a production order for A26-type nor a modification order for Gotland-class has been received for the submarines.A submarine’s sensor systems detect threats, identify other submarines and surface vessels, and provide support for navigation. These systems will be provided to Saab by other suppliers and there are lengthy lead-times for their delivery. Therefore, the sensors are being ordered in a timely fashion to allow the FMV to move forward on schedule with its plans for the A26 next-generation submarine programme.Press release, Image: US Navy View post tag: Sensor Share this articlelast_img read more
