The contract will see delivery of two ARCIMS vehicles, both operating ASW surveillance mission modules that can detect, classify and locate underwater threats and divert delivery vehicles.

This demonstrates AEUK's ability to develop, supply and support cutting-edge, innovative technology for an increasing number of defence customers."
