The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) has awarded Saab a contract to develop and manufacture Torpedo Integration Systems (TIS) for the Swedish Navy’s two A26-class submarines ordered in 2015. Delivery is scheduled for 2017-2020, during which time the company will also upgrade existing systems on-board the VISBY-class corvettes and GOTLAND-class submarines. Options covering future potential upgrades are also included.

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 and ROV on the platforms," Anne-Marie Vösu, head of business unit Underwater Systems within Saab business area Dynamics, said.
