Elbit Systems Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV), the Seagull⢠participated in a recent joint exercise between the Israeli Navy and the British Royal Navy (âRNâ) in Haifa Bay. During the exercise the USV performed a Mine Counter Measure (MCM) mission, scanning and charting a secure path for HMS Ocean, the RN helicopter carrier. Once encountering Mine-Like-Objects, the Seagull alerted HMS Ocean to avoid them, thus securing its safe route. The Seagull performed the mission while being remotely operated from a Mission Control Station onshore. Additionally, the Seagull took part in a tactical maneuvering exercise and sailed in formation with the Navy vessels and British RNâs carrier. In addition to MCM capabilities, the Seagull features switchable, modular mission payload suites. Seagull offers navies a true force multiplier delivering enhanced performance to naval operations, reducing risk to human life and dramatically cutting procurement and operating costs.
