Elbit trials mini-UAS on Seagull
Elbit Systems has integrated a mini-UAS on its Seagull USV.
Trials in recent weeks were aimed at demonstrating an extra mission set for Seagull beyond ASW and MCM, ‘further enhancing its intelligence-gathering capabilities’ and adding situational awareness, the Israeli company announced on 9 July.
It did not disclose the type of shipborne mini-UAS used in the trials, but noted that it is ‘capable of point water recovery and [has] a takeoff weight of up to 15kg’.
The visual feed generated by the mini-UAS can be transmitted to the land-based Seagull USV control unit and to the Combat Management System (CMS) onboard other vessels.
Seagull includes a switchable payload suite with EW and EO/IR payloads to provide situational awareness and facilitate intelligence gathering.
