Is­rael Aero­space In­dus­tries un­veils un­manned com­bat ma­rine sys­tem

SP's MAI - - MILITARY -

Is­rael Aero­space In­dus­tries (IAI) has un­veiled an un­manned sur­face ves­sel (USV) com­bat ma­rine sys­tem “Katana” for home­land se­cu­rity (HLS) ap­pli­ca­tions. The Katana USV sup­ports a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions for HLS and the pro­tec­tion of exclusive eco­nomic zones, in­clud­ing har­bour se­cu­rity, pa­trol of shal­low coastal and ter­ri­to­rial wa­ters, sur­face and elec­tronic war­fare and off­shore plat­form pro­tec­tion (plus oil rigs, pipe­lines, and more).

A mul­ti­func­tion ves­sel, the Katana is com­pat­i­ble with IAI’s var­i­ous sys­tems and sup­ports a to­tally in­te­grated so­lu­tion. This fea­tures un­manned ca­pa­bil­i­ties which pro­vide a re­sponse for the en­tire range of naval ap­pli­ca­tions and rev­o­lu­tionises mar­itime op­er­a­tions.

Katana’s fea­tures in­clude au­ton­o­mous nav­i­ga­tion, col­li­sion avoid­ance, ad­vanced con­trol sys­tem and more. The ves­sel is equipped with var­i­ous pay­loads (in­clud­ing elec­tro-op­ti­cal), com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tems, ra­dio (Line of Site, LOS, or NLOS), radar and weapon sys­tems. The mod­u­lar de­sign of the sys­tems al­lows for con­fig­u­ra­tional and op­er­a­tional flex­i­bil­ity as well as for adaption to a va­ri­ety of mis­sions, cus­tomer re­quire­ments and needs.
