December 23, 2017: Elbit Systems unmanned surface vessel (USV)%u2014the Seagull recently participated in a joint exercise conducted between the Israeli Navy and the British Royal Navy in Haifa Bay.

During the exercise, the USV performed a mine counter measure (MCM) mission, scanning and charting a secure path for HMS Ocean for the RN helicopter carrier. Soon after encountering mine-like-objects, the Seagull alerted HMS Ocean, 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 Royal Navy%u2019s carrier.

In addition to MCM capabilities, the Seagull features switchable, modular mission payload suites and can perform anti-submarine warfare (ASW) missions, electronic warfare (EW), maritime security (MS), hydrography and other missions using the same vessel, mission control system and data links.
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.
