Overview
The Double Eagle SAROV package enhances the capabilities of the Double Eagle family of ROVs and creates an ROV/AUV hybrid.

The addition of autonomous operation and underwater docking capability means that the Double Eagle SAROV can be operated both with and without a tether, thereby increasing its range and versatility.

Double Eagle SAROV comes in two main configurations:

  1. Mine reconnaissance – performed both remotely and autonomously
  2. Mine disposal

Options, Tools & Accessories
The Saab Double Eagle SAROV can be supplied with a hydraulic manipulator tool pack. This tool pack is installed underneath the vehicle partly using the same mechanism that holds the MDC. It can therefore be easily installed and removed according to needs. Additional tools can be carried and deployed by the manipulator. An example is a salvage claw that is intended to use for picking up objects that are heavier and more bulky than what the vehicle can pick up with the regular grip.
