Saab Seaeye Limited
Saab Seaeye is the world’s largest manufacturer of electric underwater robotic systems. For over 30 years our elite technological environment has inspired pioneering developments that continue to lead the industry with innovative solutions trusted to perform complex tasks in some of the most challenging environments on the planet. A wholly owned subsidiary of Saab, we have facilities in the UK, Sweden and the USA, along with substantial tank-test and lake-test facilities. Over 80% of our systems are exported to markets that span the globe where we are represented in 25 countries. Marine scientists worldwide are discovering that Saab Seaeye’s range of underwater e-robotic vehicles and Hydro-Lek subsea tooling is particularly suited for complex and varied research projects. These projects include environmental monitoring, marine archaeology, and biodiversity research.
Many different market sectors deploy our robotic systems in a vast array of demanding tasks including observation, inspection, repair and maintenance, diver support, survey, light construction and intervention, drill support, salvage support, deep tunnel and dam inspection, security, search and rescue operations, ordnance clearance, decommissioning, marine science, archaeology and environmental monitoring.
Key to our success is the reliability and capability of our systems and the renowned support and service we offer our customers throughout the life of their vehicle, wherever it is in the world.
Saab Seaeye leads the world with cutting edge technology that will continue to expand the potential for electric underwater robotic systems.
