Israeli unmanned boat Seagull received reconnaissance drone

The upgraded version of the Israeli robotic boat "Seagull" developed by Elbit Systems received a reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle Skylark C. According to Defense News, the boat is in service with the Israeli Navy.


Israeli unmanned boat "Seagull" ("Seagull") is designed to deal with enemy submarines and to search for sea mines. It was first introduced in early 2016. The length of the boat is 12 meters. It is equipped with two engines, allowing speeds up to 32 knots. Seagull can carry payloads weighing up to 2,3 tons.

The boat is equipped with torpedoes and an electronic warfare system. It is reported that the boat is able to recognize sea mines and destroy some of them (floating on the surface or a shallow depth) using a remotely controlled 12,7 mm machine gun. On board there is also an underwater unmanned vehicle for finding mines. "Seagull" is able to work autonomously for four days, and its range is about one hundred kilometers, while one operator can control two boats at once. The maximum permissible sea waves - 7 points.


The upgraded version of the boat, which received an unmanned aerial vehicle with an ejection launch, can significantly expand the field of view. After starting the drone, the boat acts as a repeater for transmitting pictures to the operator. The Skylark C UAV itself is an aircraft-type drone with a take-off weight of 15 kg. It is able to remain in the air for up to 5 hours, and its range is 40 kilometers.

        To comrade Aaron Zawi hi It’s a cool boat. Moreover, it’s necessary to protect port water areas. And I dare say it would be a great fit on the Black Sea. And to protect Novorossiysk, Sevastopol, Sochi with its permanent events and the president’s residence. Everywhere you need round-the-clock security. Including the same Crimean bridge. a stuffed boat to guard limited water areas. It is clear that it will not replace guard patrols with people in full. But as an addition, it’s just a good car.

      In general, of course, the scale and diversity of Israeli developments in terms of electronics are striking. It seems like they have no other problems. (What, only we have a pandemic, corruption, demography, problems with neighbors, fools and roads, not a conscious population?) .
      I apologize, can it be time for us to take a more critical, realistic look at ourselves?

        There is not enough fresh water in Israel, but food exports are one of the main sources of income.
        If we are not normal democracy and continue to be outcasts, then the gap will increase. Yes, the 90s have nothing to do with it, people who were born at the beginning of the XNUMXs are already studying at universities.

            In Israel, income from the sale of food is one of the main items

          There is not enough fresh water in Israel, but food exports are one of the main sources of income.

          In order to cope with water shortages, in the zero years we had to completely revise the concept of water consumption in the country.
          Powerful desalination plants were built using their own autonomous energy sources, a complete wastewater treatment system was put into operation. Agriculture was switched to purified water and the so-called "brackish" (it is not suitable for drinking, but it is unexpectedly well accepted by a number of agricultural crops and fish grow well in fish farms); it turned out to be a lot in underground lakes in the desert. Drip irrigation is used wherever possible. All enterprises using water for cooling are transferred to a closed cycle. As a result, 80% of drinking water is desalinated, and almost 90% of wastewater is treated and reused in agriculture. The water consumption limit for Jordan has been completely lifted. Once, under the agreement, they could use the waters of the Jordan River within the allocated quotas
          .
          In fact, food exports are not the main source of income. Its share in GDP is steadily declining. Agricultural products account for 2,5% of GDP (in 1979 it was 6% of GDP) and 3,6% of exports. At the same time, only about 3,7% of Israel's labor force is employed in agriculture. Israel provides 95% of its own needs, importing only grain, oilseeds, meat, coffee, cocoa and sugar.

      Now you will be even more surprised: they started with synagogues. A couple of years ago, at the entrance to the synagogue on Lermontovsky (St. Petersburg), a tsdakomat was installed (tsedaka - as if "surrender"). So: the chosen thread comes in, shoves a card into this device, and he gets a blessing of his choice on a piece of paper (the same check). And everyone is happy, and the rabbi is not distracted by trifles. yes laughing In general, this was done for the convenience of those who find it easier to donate by bank transfer. wink Along the way, the tsdakomat sells tickets for concerts taking place in the synagogue.
