STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN (BNS): The Polish Navy has chosen Saab's Double Eagle system for the Kormoran II mine countermeasures vessel (MCMV).

The Double Eagle concept uses a modular approach to provide flexible systems for MCM and maritime security.

Saab said it is aimed at providing a hydro dynamically stable, highly reliable system with exceptional performance and low life cycle cost.

The Double Eagle, available in MkII, MkIII and Sarov versions, is used by navies around the world on many types of ships.

It has also been adapted to the craft of opportunities (COOP) concept where the Double Eagle is integrated in a container that easily can be installed on almost any type of ship.

The new generation of Double Eagle is able to operate both as a battery powered AUV and a as a conventional tethered ROV.

As a new feature the AUV will be able to find and by automatic dock with the tether while still in the water. This will enable download of collected data and recharge of batteries without any risky launch and recovery operations, it added.
