Double Eagle Mk II System Technical Course


The Double Eagle Mk II System Technical Course provided an invaluable resource to the Royal Australian Navy during the introduction to service of the Double Eagle Mine Disposal System. Working cooperatively with HMAS Waterhen's Mine Warfare Faculty to develop the course, it provided hands-on experience with the Double Eagle system. The course was delivered through a combination of theory and practical training sessions covering all aspects of the Double Mk II system. The 'hands-on' practical elements of the course are particularly valuable for maintainer training and experience. Course components include:

  • Double Eagle Mk II Vehicle
  • Power Converter unit
  • Automatic Tension Control Winch
  • Corrective Maintenance
  • Planned Maintenance
  • Safety
  • Operations
On completion of this course maintainers are fully competent to support the Double Eagle Mk II Systems.

Double Eagle Operator Training

This course provides pilots with the necessary skills required to safely pilot an MDV in operational scenarios.

Pilot competency is fundamental to successful MDS operations. If a pilot is confused, unsure or out-of-practice, the probability of mission failure is high. The risk to personnel and equipment safety is also increased as a result.

The key facility for pilot training is a 8-metre diameter x 5-metre deep test tank, allowing full operation of the MDV. This tank allows pilots to develop important skills in MDV operation in a controlled environment. Pilots are able to observe Double Eagles behaviour and fully comprehend the advanced manoeuvring capabilities of the Double Eagle Mk II vehicle.

The result of pilot training is a pilot who is more effective, competent and safer in all operations and is able to attempt complex tasks with confidence.
