Saab showcasing its Double Eagle and AUV62 AT underwater systems at Balt Military Expo 2014
 
Defence and security company Saab is showcasing two of its underwater systems at Balt Military Expo 2014 held in Gdansk, Poland: The Double Eagle and the AUV62 AT. The Swedish company recently announced that the Polish Navy has chosen the Double Eagle system for the Kormoran II MCMV.
     
Defence and security company Saab announces that the Polish Navy has chosen the Double Eagle system for the Kormoran II MCMV. The Double Eagle is in service with several navies, in the Baltic Sea, in the North Sea and around the world as a state of the art, well proven, low risk and extremely efficient mine countermeasures (MCM) underwater vehicle

The Double Eagle concept uses a modular approach to provide flexible systems for MCM and Maritime Security. 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 design was from day one targeted on modular design and open architecture with the possibility to replace main system elements. This allows upgrades and reconfiguration, enabling use of new technology and changes in naval tactics/strategy as part of an evolutionary strategy. This has led to a system where core functionality and core subsystems have been reused in several products and configurations, all to provide system with extreme stability yet still highly manoeuvrable.

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.

Saab's AUV62 AT is a target simulator for realistic ASW training.

Using a vital naval asset, such as a submarine, to act as a target in ASW training is extremely cost-inefficient and resource-consuming. AUV62-AT replaces the conventional submarine role. It is intended for ASW operator training and onboard sonar and command system check-up.

The AUV62-AT vehicle can be easily configured as an Artificial Target using a Payload Module with a Noise Transmitter and an Echo Transponder. It is therefore used to resemble a true Submarine for operator training, as well as onboard ASW sonar and command system check-up.

The AUV62-AT can follow pre-programmed routes or be navigated online by the operator using radio communication or just the underwater acoustic link. The operator can therefore not only change the speed, depth and course of the vehicle, but also alter the acoustic performance or select another pre programmed route.
