HERO-30, -120 and -400 on Show
UVision Air Ltd is showing its HERO family of loitering munitions at the Dubai Airshow this week, emphasising their increased range and multi-mission flexibility.
The entire series of munitions has been specifically designed to meet the demands of airborne launch. With low acoustic, visual, radar and thermal signatures, and featuring a substantial warhead for high-value or fortified targets, they can locate, track and strike hidden or moving objects with extreme accuracy, featuring high-speed transit. They can also carry a variety of electronic measures as well as kinetic effectors, making them suitable for almost any extended-range mission.
“The HERO series of loitering munition systems provides combat forces with unique capabilities for the modern battlefield, providing tactical echelons with lethal capabilities of unprecedented precision, while minimising sensor-to-shooter cycles and maintaining operational independence,” commented Avi Mizrachi, CEO of UVision. “These capabilities are already combat-proven by major NATO military forces and others among UVision’s leading operational customers worldwide. The Abraham Accords open up new opportunities for cooperation between UVision and military forces in the UAE region. We plan to introduce our latest, most advanced combat-proven loitering munition systems, which meet the requirements of the region. UVision considers the UAE to be an important market, and we are working to reinforce the new partnership between our countries.”
On display in Dubai will be:
- HERO-30: a simple-to-operate system offering extreme accuracy, last-second abort and rapid re-engagement capabilities in multiple configurations – man-pack, vehicle-mounted or fixed-site.
- HERO-120: a mid-range anti-armour system with a unique aerodynamic structure contributing to pinpoint accuracy in urban engagements, thus reducing collateral damage. It features a wide range of multi-purpose warheads.
- HERO-400: a long-range weapon with low acoustic, thermal and vidual signatures, offering precision strike, extended endurance of up to two hours and a multi-purpose warhead to prosecute fortified and armour targets among others. Exceptional manoeuvrability provides an advanced mid-air abort facility that enables automatic return to loitering mode, re-engagement or return-to-base facilities.
- HERO Training and Simulation System: realistic virtual training for the entire series, in three configurations – classroom, portable and embedded. The first provides a robust simulation solution with a rich, versatile scenario generator for multiple trainees. The two latter configurations offer HERO operators continuous hands-on training at various levels during deployment, maintaining the highest level of operational proficiency and readiness – anytime, anywhere.
