Elbit Systems has won a contract to supply Seagull USVs (Unmanned Surface Vehicles) to the Navy of a country in Asia-Pacific.

The contract that is in an amount that is not material to Elbit Systems, will be performed over a 17-month period, the company said Wednesday.

Elbit added UAV capabilities to its Seagull USV last July by incorporating Skylark C drone.  With a takeoff weight of 15kg, the Skylark C provides a visual feed transmitted to land-based control units. The addition of a UAV also extends the Seagull operator’s line of sight.

Under the contract, Elbit Systems will provide Seagull USV systems that are specifically configured to perform Mine Counter Measures (MCM) missions while facilitating the option to add technology modules needed for Anti-Submarine Warfare. The Seagull USVs to be supplied will integrate Side-Scan and Forward-Looking sonars, Mine Identification and Destruction Remotely Operated Vehicles. The USVs also will be equipped with the Company’s autonomous suite, Combat Management System and Satellite Communication capability.

The Seagull USVs will enable the customer’s Navy to execute end-to-end MCM operations, handling bottom, moored and drifting sea mines. The Seagull USV offers endurance of four days, sea-keeping missions of up to Sea-State 5 and the flexibility to control several vessels from the same Mission Control System.
