Elbit Systems’ ISTAR division has partnered with Leonardo to develop and demonstrate the ability of the Seagull USV to launch Leonardo’s lightweight and mini torpedoes, the company announced on 6 December.

The solution will be based on the same architecture used for airborne torpedo launching systems.

The 12m Seagull USV is already able to to incorporate lightweight weapons that counter submarines. The USV is equipped with one or two vessels that can be deployed for anti- submarine warfare, mine countermeasure, EW and maritime security.
