UK-based MSubs (UK Pavilion, Stand B-052) is making its first appearance at the NAVDEX show. A specialist in the design, manufacture and integration of manned (submersibles and submarines) and unmanned underwater vehicles, the company has built up a strong pedigree in the military market since delivering its first submersible in 1986. Examples include the large-scale unmanned Mobile Anti-Submarine Training Target and the Mobile Undersea Systems Test Laboratory vehicle.
MSubs’ most notable recent success was the award of a contract to build a prototype commercially classed ‘dry’ submersible vehicle, designated S351, for test and evaluation by the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).
Sea trials of S351 began from Plymouth earlier this month; the craft will now complete several months of sea trials prior to delivery to USSOCOM.
