Elbit Systems UK has completed a series of Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) trials with the UK MoD via the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory’s (DSTL) Progeny Framework, exploring how autonomous systems could support future ASW operations. Specifically, the SEAGULL, Elbit’s multi-mission, multi-sensor Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV), was deployed in these trials, with the USA’s L3 Harris providing the sonar. Across this period, the SEAGULL utilised its ‘ASW Toolbox’ solution to show how the abilities of this system can offer a force multiplier for ASW operations.
Capable of conducting ASW, Mine Countermeasures, Electronic Warfare, Maritime Security and Hydrography missions, the SEAGULL can be deployed from ports or motherships and has previously taken part in trials involving the Belgian and Spanish Navies. Elbit Systems UK was one of a shortlist of firms selected to take part in the second phase of this series of live at sea trials which took place off UK coast with the MoD in late October 2019.
Mission Next-Level Weapon Stabilisation – Tailor-Made Meets ModularIn the development and production of military vehicles, time is not only money, but also relative. Years pass from the idea to the first deployment. In turn, vehicles are in service for decades before they need repairs and upgrades.
FNSS: A Globally trusted and respected Turkish partner in defenceFNSS continuously develops new generations of wheeled armoured combat vehicles, which incorporates the most recent technologies. PARS SCOUT, PARS NG-WAV 8x8 and PARS IV 6x6 Special Operations Vehicle (SOV) are the samples, which highlights such effort.
