Yesterday, we kicked off our HAST (Hydroacoustic Sonar Training) system together with Jörgen Juhlin and Per Smith over at the Swedish Naval Academy (SSS) and Stig-Lennart Gunnarsson at Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV). In the beautiful Karlskrona, we laid out the future plans of our new training system that will help train sonar operators in Sweden. The project was given to MuchDifferent the 28th of February after an international public tender with seven companies competing for the project.
HAST will replace several old tools and systems used for training and teaching sonar operators to detect and classify marine vessels. The new system will partly be accessed through the Internet and live up to the military’s strictest security requirements.
At the end, we will have built something together with the Swedish Naval Academy that will impress others with its thoughtfulness, care for details and passion. Too bad it will be top secret so that I will not be able to brag in more detail about it.
