Safety within reach
Sea Wasp, our latest generation of ROV based systems, was designed to successfully locate, identify and neutralise IEDs, especially in confined areas and challenging conditions like strong current, ports and harbours.
The hydrodynamically stable, highly reliable system boasts exemplary performance and low lifecycle costs.
A safer solution to ordnance disposal
With a high degree of operational autonomy, Sea Wasp takes vessels and operators out of harms way, providing a safer underwater solution to ordnance disposal. The concept is derived from the robotic systems used for disposal of land IEDs.
Sea Wasp represents a significant improvement in underwater operations against IEDs and similar threats by allowing bomb technicians to remove both improvised and conventional munition threats.
Configurable for any mission
Designed to be operated by as few as two people, the system can easily be configured to meet the requirements of any mission and includes a vehicle, generator, pilot station, winch and power supply unit.
It can be piloted from the surface using a control console located onboard a support vessel. Sea Wasp can also be piloted from a vehicle, on dock.
Transportable and easily deployable
Transportable over land in a light support vehicle, Sea Wasp can be deployed from harbour walls or the beach. It can be fitted to bespoke surface support vessels and has the flexibility to be loaded into multiple types of boat, including vessels of opportunity, rigid-hulled inflatable boats, as well as work boats, depending on mission requirements.
Cutting-edge sensors and navigation
Sea Wasp’s onboard Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) and Internal Measurement Unit (IMU) deliver navigational capability, allowing it to record and transmit specific waypoints. The vehicle itself incorporates Saab's unique iCON intelligent control system, as featured in our other mine countermeasure vehicles, enableling ultimate movement in six degrees of freedom for ultimate maneuverability.
