Defensie Materieel Organisatie recently signed a contract with Saab for the supply of Sea Wasp ROVs for the Koninklijke Marine, Gabriel Alberto Bazzolo reported in his blog.
This small and flexible underwater robot is suitable for a wide range of underwater operations.
Defensie Materieel Organisatie under the Ministerie van Defense (MoD) ensures that soldiers can work with modern, robust and safe equipment.
The organization of teams participates in the purchase, maintenance and sale of equipment.
With a base weight of only 75 kg, Sea Wasp is a small and flexible ROV which can be used for a wide range of underwater operations, both within the commercial and military sectors.
Sea Wasp can, for example, be used for sea mine detection and other reconnaissance operations.
My father was a naval officer, and one of my uncles died at Dunkirk in 1940. That doesn’t immediately give you any expertise on military matters, but I also studied international relations and geopolitics. I have worked in think-tanks specialising more in defence and security issues. I take a professional break for family reasons and I spend some time writing about my professional subjects.
