Saab has acquired Denmark’s Nordic Defence Industries (NDI) that manufactures mine disposal charge systems for the naval defense industry.
“With the acquisition, our regional footprint will be strengthened as well as our role as a global supplier of Mine Counter Measure solutions,” said Görgen Johansson, head of business area Dynamics in a statement Tuesday.
One of NDI’s products is DAMDIC, a mine disposal charge, carried to the mine by a remotely operated vehicle such as Saab’s Double Eagle.
The company will be integrated into Saab’s business area Dynamics within its Underwater Systems business unit. The combination of Saab’s experience and knowledge from the AUV/ROV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle/Remotely Operated Vehicle) market and NDI’s innovative mine disposal solutions will create Mines Counter Measure (MCM) house within Saab.
Under new management, NDI’s main office and workshops, along with its staff, will remain in Aalborg Denmark, to ensure the continued supply of products and services to customers.
Saab offers solutions such as underwater weapon systems, anti-submarine warfare training, mine counter measures, surveillance and underwater operations for both civil and military sub-surface operations as well as solutions for the off-shore industry.
Within mine warfare, Saab offers a range of advanced, unmanned solutions that provide naval forces with the ability to secure and sustain their freedom of movement.
