Seagull benefits from new onboard technologies

22nd March 2021 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Panoramic video system with automatic target recognition is added to Israeli UAV.

Elbit Systems announced on 22 March that it has introduced new onboard technologies for its Seagull USV, to enhance its capability to operate autonomously in a busy maritime environment.

A 360-degree panoramic video system, automatic target recognition and a patented automatic navigation system now complement Seagull's sense-and-avoid capability.

As a result, claimed Elbit, Seagull can ‘operate safely in dense harbours, at sea with heavy traffic and autonomously complete missions even without communications with the control station’.

The Seagull USV first entered service with the Israeli Navy in 2017. According to Shephard Defence Insight, the vessel can perform ASW, EW, maritime security, hydrography and other missions using the same vessels, mission control system and data links.
