NEW PRODUCTS AND TECHNOLOGY
A futuristic flying fish-styled defence system for the Royal Navy, was envisaged by Saab Seaeye systems engineer, Ali Roy. With defence dangers acute at the waterline, she designed an organic shaped concept with the nimble agility to both fly and swim - to avoid detection or pursue a quarry. Joining a team of the UK's brightest and most talented young engineers and scientists Ali was tasked by the Royal Navy, along with the rest of the group, to imagine submarines of the future.
