Singapore Airshow: Israeli Air Force Expands HERON TP Fleet

Features capabilities the IDF never used before

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) will take delivery of additional IAI HERON TPs, the largest unmanned reconnaissance aircraft used by the IAF. The new aircraft will feature capabilities which Israel Defense Forces (IDF) never used before. The significant fleet expansion will be accompanied by a 70% increase in flight hours.

The HERON TP squadron plays a central role in the IAF, in which RPAs are currently performing approx. 70% of its operational activity. The squadron is in the process of expansion on many dimensions, including presence in multiple operational arenas, acquisition of new capabilities and engaging in new collaborations. The squadron is equipped with a broad array of capabilities including electro optic and radar payloads, enhanced flight envelope altitude, speed and range, airborne endurance and larger payload capacity. This growth process is expected to increase its impact in the battlefield.

HERON TP’s development is the result of IAI’s over 40 years of experience in developing RPA for 50 satisfied customers with more than 1,600,000 cumulative flight hours.
