AAE Anounces Multiple USBL Orders for Japanese Navy
The Japan Maritime Self Defence Force (JMSDF) has awarded a major contract to Applied Acoustic Engineering (AAE) for the supply of a number of USBL tracking systems and associated equipment.
Following sea trials in Japan and a competitive tender process, JMSDF took the decision to invest in seven of AAE’s Alpha Portable systems, after witnessing and accepting the key criteria of tracking stability, portability and ease of use. Predominantly intended for use with their naval search and rescue dive teams, JMSDF have also specified AAE’s 210 Micro/Remote transponders as the ideal beacon to attach to its divers.
The contract award, issued in conjunction with Toyo Corporation, AAE’s exclusive representatives for Japan, reaffirms the company’s position as a leading manufacturer of subsea acoustic systems for commercial and military applications.
Sales Manager for AAE, Gavin Willoughby commented “This is a hugely significant order for our company which demonstrates our capability and enhances our reputation as a major supplier to the defence industry. We are extremely proud to add JMSDF to our portfolio of high profile clients”.
