PXGEO is headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and works with marine geophysics. The Sabertooth vehicles are controlled wirelessly and can operate at great depths. PXGEO will use the submersibles in the company's offshore seismic data acquisition solution, MantaRay.

Thanks to the joint expertise of Saab and PXGEO, we can autonomize the acquisition of seismic data at sea, which is a major step forward," says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.

Sabertooth is manufactured in Linköping, Sweden. Deliveries will begin this year and continue until 2025.
