Background information

Background information

The Mini-Sub UVS 1300 Malen was originally built in 2006 on a Swedish shipyard.

The intention to deliver it to the Swedish Navy as a target vessel was never realised, but UVS Malen has since been used as an event-vessel and for training in sea-trials, inspections and other projects.

In 2018, EmbeddedArt aquired the Mini-Sub and UVS 1300 Malen is now available for companies, government- and other organisations to hire.

Application areas

Application areas

The UVS 1300 allows EmbeddedArt to offer opportunities that have not been available for many years.

Being able to practice against a real Mini-Sub adds another dimension to the level of training currently possible today, and raises the level of education of the ship's crews.

Other organisations can also benefit greatly from UVS 1300 Malen, which offers a platform with completely new opportunities for research, sea-trials, testing projects and so on.

Core application areas:

  • ASW training
  • Seabed Mapping
  • Sonar Decoy
  • Target strength measurements
  • Sea Surveillance Systems – testing and training
  • Reference target - signature measurement range
  • Sensor platform for R&D
