Saab will support Double Eagle Mk III and Double Eagle Sarov unmanned systems in service with the Polish Navy.

Saab has signed a contract with Gdynia Naval Port Command to deliver integrated logistics support for Double Eagle Mk III and Double Eagle Sarov systems.

Work on the PLN14.7 million ($3.72 million) contract will be completed in 2023, the Swedish company announced on 29 March.

‘The scope of deliveries in individual years will include the supply of spare parts, special tools, technical documentation and training,’ Saab added.

Double Eagle Mk III comes in two configurations, respectively for mine reconnaissance (performed remotely and autonomously) and mine disposal.

Double Eagle Sarov is a hybrid platform designed to assist mine countermeasures (MCM) operations. As a modular system, it can be reconfigured to suit different roles, including mine reconnaissance and mine disposal. It can function either as a remotely operated vehicle or autonomous underwater vehicle, Shephard Defence Insight notes.

Double Eagle Mk III was installed on the Polish Navy MCM vessel ORP Kormoran, while Double Eagle Sarov is scheduled for installation in 2021-2022 on future Kormoran-class MCM ships ORP Albatros and ORP Mewa.
