Modus has placed an order with Saab Seaeye for the next vehicle in its Hybrid Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (H-AUV) fleet. The 3,000m rated Saab Sabertooth will be delivered in the third quarter of 2019.

This further order reinforces Modus' position as a world leader in HAUV capability and builds upon the advanced technology development programme Modus initiated in 2012.

Modus launched its first H-AUV - also a Saab Sabertooth - in 2017. As part of a project backed by Innovate UK, this has successfully completed major pipeline inspections and the trialling of subsea docking and residency.

The new system will be equipped with extended autonomous endurance and increased thrust for high speed survey and will be prepared for the integration of advanced and high-resolution sensors for different types of applications and operations.

The Modus vehicle has all the advanced features of the military hybrid AUV/ROVs, combined with the rugged and proven Saab Seaeye technology. The vehicle is also capable of providing light intervention support and can be deployed on a wide range of subsea tasks across all sectors.
