Elbit Integrated TRAPS Onboard its Seagull USV

Posted by Michelle Howard

Elbit Systems Ltd. has announced the integration of the Towed Reelable Active Passive Sonar (TRAPS) for Unmanned Surface Vessels (TRAPS-USV) onboard the company's Seagull USV.

The sea trials included multiple deployment and recovery cycles, towing at different speeds and transmission at various power levels.

Integration of the TRAPS-USV enables the Seagull USV to perform Anti-Submarine Warfare operations on-the-move, substantially extending its operative range and further enhancing its flexibility. The integration of the TRAPS-USV follows the recent conversion for operation, by the Israeli Navy, of Helicopter Long-Range Active Sonar (HELRAS) dipping sonar onboard the Seagull USV.

TRAPS-USV is the compact and powerful low frequency towed sonar that was recently introduced by Geospectrum, the company's Canadian wholly owned subsidiary.
