Elbit Systems’  has introduced new technologies on-board the Seagull Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV), further enhancing its capability to operate autonomously in a busy maritime environment and to overcome communication challenges.

A 360-degrees Panoramic Video System with an Automatic Target Recognition capability and a patented Automatic Navigation System, complement the USV’s Sense and Avoid capability, enabling the vessel to operate in compliance with the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972 (COLREGs). This enables the Seagull USV to operate safely in dense harbors, at sea with heavy traffic and autonomously complete missions even without communications with the control station.
