A report by Azeri Defence reveals that UVision has recently demonstrated its Hero-30 short-range loitering system to strategic clients.
“These recent trials for strategic 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 re-engaging the targets.”
Man-pack portable, the Hero-30 is the smallest system in the UVision family of smart loitering systems and can reach a speed of up to 100 knots. Weighing 3kg, including a 0.5kg warhead, it has a range of up to 40km and an endurance flight time of 30 minutes.
