Saab to deliver additional Double Eagle SAROV systems to Poland

Saab has received an order from Poland for deliveries of additional underwater vehicles called Double Eagle SAROV (Semi-Autonomous Remotely Operated Vehicle).

Deliveries of the Double Eagle systems are scheduled with the delivery of new mine-hunting vessels to the Polish Navy during 2026-2027 and will be used to dispose of sea mines.

The Double Eagle SAROV systems are to be carried on the Polish Navy´s three new minehunter vessels known as the Kormoran II- class, which will deploy and operate them.

The order was signed with the Polish company Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A., who builds the Polish Navy’s second batch of Kormoran II-class Mine Countermeasure (MCM) Vessels, and who will equip the new ships with Saab’s Double Eagle SAROV.

“We welcome these orders from Remontowa Shipbuilding for additional Double Eagle SAROV systems for the Polish Navy, which will enable them to conduct efficient and safe mine countermeasure operations,” says Niclas Kolmodin, head of Saab’s business unit Underwater Systems.

“These MCM vessels represent an important contract for Remontowa Shipbuilding as well as an important statement and reinforcement of Poland’s national security in a fast-changing world.

Saab has already successfully delivered and commissioned its Double Eagle systems to us for the first three vessels in the Kormoran II program,” says Dariusz Jaguszewski, Commercial Director at Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A.

Used by navies around the world, the Double Eagle family consists of a selection of underwater vehicles for MCM operations. With different vehicle configurations and payload integration options there is a solution for every scenario, from search, identification to mine neutralisation.
