Loitering platform makes its debut appearance: the Hero-400 long-range loitering platform has been presented to the public for the first time at the exhibition complementing the Second International Ground Warfare & Logistics Conference opened today and ending on May 18 at the IDF Armored Corps Memorial Center in Latrun.
The Hero-400 by UVision is a long-range loitering unmanned platform capable of hitting a target very accurately at various angles. The new platform carries a substantial 10kg warhead, designed to penetrate fortified positions and engage armored vehicles and infantry targets. The warhead is activated by a percussion/impact, proximity or elapsed time fuze, as per the user's choice.
Method of operation: the platform is launched and steered to the target area, where it uses a day/night surveillance camera to photograph the objective. The surveillance footage is transmitted to the operator and based on this information, the operator makes the decision as to whether and how to attack the target. In the event that the target area appears to contain civilians, the operator can abort the mission. The Heron-400 is fitted with a quiet electrical motor and possesses the maneuverability required in order to hit a moving target.
