AMITS is 10 Years On
Today on 08 June 2009 AMITS celebrates its 10th anniversary since
the company was founded. The celebration is considerably enhanced
by today's news that the company's major R&D project, as part
of the HABETaS consortium, has matured to achieve its first order.
HABETaS Project Launch Customer
Today 08 June 2009 AMITS is proud to announce that The Royal Netherlands
Navy has selected HABETaS as the new generation escape system for
the Walrus class submarines.
The HABETaS project has been in development for over 6 years. Preliminary
work by AMITS leading up to the formation of the consortium preceded
this and for AMITS this represents the culmination of 9 years of
This represents significant export earnings for the UK at this
time of economic hardship.
Renewable Energy 2008
The company is now becoming involved in renewable energy research
and development programmes. Our underwater engineering expertise
is relevant to development of close inshore shallow water, tidal
estuaries, rivers and even streams in high mountain areas.
Hydropower in its many forms is the way ahead. Hydropower is very
predictable, unlike wind, and can provide power when it is needed.
Shortly we will be announcing the programmes and the new alliances
coming into existence.
In September the company will be attending the Subcon2007 conference
in Kiel. This prestigious submarine conference is attended by the
majority of the world's navies. The HABETaS escape system will be
presented in its completed form ready for production and installation
into submarines. Along with our partners HDW and bfa Augsburg we
will be making some significant announcements on the project progress.
Company Expansion Continues.
The expansion of the company continues and additional office and
worksop areas are being leased from the Gosport Business Centre.
Along with the expansion in space we are now actively recruiting
HABETaS Completes proving trials
The HABETaS Submarine Escape System developmenmt has now completed
all of the development proving trials.
The final trials series was completed at the Test Laboratory in
the Kockums Shipyard in Malmo Sweden.
The testing was witnessed by the Naval Engineering Test Establishment
(NETE) from Canada.
The trials concluded with an open day for navy representatives
to view the progress achieved to date. Attendance included representatives
from Sweden, Holland, South Africa, Canada and the United Kingdom.
The system is now available for installation on submarines.
AMITS is moving premises to the new Gosport Business Centre at
Frater Gate. The move provides more office space and better access

The HABETaS programme to develop new submarine escape systems was
announced during the SUBCON2003 conference in Kiel. HABETaS is a
joint venture between HDW, bfa Augsburg and AMITS. Following trials
at QinetiQ in the UK the HABETaS project has made the leap forward
to realisation and is now ready for exploitation. HABETaS is a deep
escape system and submariners will now have the chance to make a
rapid escape from a crippled submarine in depths of 300 metres.
The system presents a major advance in escape capability for the
submariners of the world.
HABETaS will be offered by HDW for newbuildings and for retrofits.
HABETaS can be readily retrofitted to many of the worlds existing
We have formed an alliance with Oceanworks International Inc. (OWI)

for our product range in the important US marketplace and throughout
OWI will be manufacturing, supporting and selling our new designs
in the US for distribution in the "new world" market place,
namely the US, Canada and the rest of the Americas. The first design
available will be the advanced AZ20 Suction Anchor Pump. Local manufacture
and support from this top class engineering company will ensure
that the products are fully supported in this important market place.
OWI will be offering a full custom engineering backup service to
ensure that the products are properly optimised and matched to each
customer's application. The AZ20 is ideally suited to the latest
