Eurosatory 2018: UVision demonstrates Hero 30 loitering system to strategic client


UVision Air Ltd., a global pioneer of lethal aerial loitering systems of all sizes, has demonstrated its Hero-30 short-range loitering system to strategic clients, it announced during Eurosatory 2018.

The two successful demonstrations took place in May 2018: the firstwas carried out with a live warhead and was performed by military operators of a strategic customer during a militaty exercise.The seconddemonstration was performed during the International Fire Support Symposium and was observed by representatives of the armed forces of several NATO countries. Both resulted in a perfect hit on the targets.

“These recent trials forstrategic customers are just the latest in a long list of successful trials” says Noam Levitt, CEO of UVision. “The scenarios demonstrated with the Hero-30 included the silent pneumatic launch, loitering and ISR capabilities,locating and locking on to the target and finally the precise hit (less than one meter CEP).The demonstration also highlighted one of the Hero-30’s big operational advantages – its ability to respond to rapid, unpredicted changes in battlefield conditions, by conducting a full abort of an attack in mid-air, automatically returning to loitering mode and quickly reengaging the targets".

Man-pack portable, the Hero-30 is the smallest system in the UVision family of smart loitering systems. Deployable within minutes, it is capable of speeds of up to 100 knots and is ideal for anti-personnel missions or against light vehicles. Weighing in at just 3kg, including a 0.5kg warhead, it has a range of up to 40km and an endurance flight time of 30 minutes.

The UVision HERO family of loitering munition systems includes eight systems: Hero-30, Hero-70, Hero-120, Hero-250, Hero-400, Hero-400EC, Hero-900 & Hero-1250 designed for assorted tasks at various ranges. HERO systems enable high-speed transit flight and low-speed loitering, depending on the tactical or operational needs of the mission: handling moving targets, moving light-duty vehicles, tanks, and other strategic objectives. All HERO systems can also be integrated on any platform: light-vehicles, APC's and Naval & Aerial platforms using multi-canister launching systems.

The HERO systems may be provided in the ISR configuration, enabling the use of the platform as a means for gathering intelligence, or as a missile, enabling both ISR missions and precision attacks on targets, using warheads of various types and weights. The HERO family can carry out pinpoint strikes in urban areas or remote locations, with minimal collateral damage. In cases where an attack is aborted, HERO systems can be recalled and another target selected. With extremely low noise and thermal signature, these systems integrate highly advanced stabilized electro-optics day/night cameras and are ideal for deployment from air, land and sea.
