The “Katana,” a dual-use unmanned surface vessel designed by Israel Aerospace Industries, raises the bar of marine defense to the next level.

Coastlines and marine facilities are always vulnerable to threats and illegal activities, including terrorism and drug smuggling.

As an answer to the many threats Israel faces at sea, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has come up with a brilliant little boat called the “Katana.”

The vessel contains a wide-range of systems and payloads, and communicates with a command and control station on land. The boat can be controlled from land or from another vessel at sea.
