December 2017 Newsletter

December 2017 NewsletterAs we head into this short seasonal month, Valeport are happy to confirm a very good year for Sales with targets being met during 2017.
This is a good position to be in despite the market difficulties we all face, but signs are more positive for 2018 and planning is in place here for further growth with staff appointments and changes in facilities to meet demand.
Please find below a quick round up of our latest news:
Valeport Midas SVX2 Sound Velocity Profiler
SAABSAAB Kockums Select Midas SVX2 COTS Technology
A number of customised SVX2 units have been delivered to SAAB Kockums following extensive testing and acceptance. The MIDAS SVX2 is an advanced probe, combining sound velocity with salinity and density technologies to provide a versatile instrument which delivers superior data profiles. 
The MIDAS SVX2 was selected for its commercial off the shelf (COTS) status which contributed to project cost and lead time efficiency. Swedish manufacturer, Saab Kockums, develops leading-edge, world-class naval technology to design, build and maintain naval surface vessels and submarines that incorporate the most advanced stealth technology.
