MIDAS SVX2 selected by Saab Kockums

As part of Valeport's drive to improve cost and lead times to our clients, we offer some of the very best sensor technology available as Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS). As a result of this approach, Valeport has announced its recent completion of a contract to supply four customised MIDAS SVX2 probes to Saab Kockums.

Midas SVX2 Sound Velocity Profiler

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.

Kevin Edwards, Valeport sales & marketing manager, commented: "Valeport's COTS approach means that the latest sensor technology is available at optimal cost and lead time. Our products can be customised to suit surface vessel and submarine requirements and we are proud that Valeport instruments are in regular operational use."
