ZUR IGAL, Israel – UVision Air Ltd. in Zur Igal, Israel, is introducing the Hero-400EC extended-range, precise loitering unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) munition system with an electric motor that enables it to loiter silently above a target and respond quickly to pop-up threats.
The Hero-400EC uses man-in-the loop technology and advanced electro-optical/infra-red (EO/IR) payloads that can locate, track, and strike static or moving targets with pinpoint accuracy and surprise.
The system features a low noise and thermal signature modular multi-tube launcher that is adaptable to a wide range of platforms, thereby offering air, land, and sea capabilities.
The abort capability allows automatic reentry into the loitering mode, re-engagement of the enemy, or return to the recovery area using a parachute. The Hero-400EC has a maximum take-off weight of 88.2 pounds and a warhead weight of 22 pounds, with an endurance of as long as two hours.
The Hero family comprises seven systems with high-speed transit flight and low-speed loitering capabilities. It also can operate in an ISR configuration for gathering intelligence.
