UVision has announced that it will unveil the Hero-400EC’s Multi-Canister Launcher at the upcoming Paris Air Show. The new launcher is suitable for a wide range of land and naval applications, the company said in a release. UVision will also reveal an advanced configuration of the Hero-120 with multi-purpose warheads.
The Hero-400EC is a long-range, high-precision Loitering munition system with a low acoustic, visual and thermal signature that can locate, track and strike static and moving targets with high accuracy, stealth, and minimal collateral damage.
Due to its long range and endurance capabilities, the Hero-400EC can be launched safely away from enemy lines from a modular multi-tube canister launcher mounted on a range of land or naval platforms. Weighing 650 kg including six munitions, the system can also be deployed in Forward-Operating Bases and controlled from remote locations.
“As global leaders in the field of lethal loitering systems, we are constantly responding to urgent requirements from the field. The new, modular multi-canister launcher as well the new advanced edition of the Hero-120 were developed to answer those needs,” said Maj. Gen. (ret.) Avi Mizrachi, CEO of UVision. “These capabilities give combat forces better control on the battlefield and suit a wide variety of applications and scenarios.”
At the Paris Air Show, UVision will also present for the first time the new configuration of the Hero-120 ‒ a portable, modular, customizable loitering weapon system that can be fitted with a range of multi-purpose warheads.
According to the company, the system can carry out pinpoint strikes against mid-range hard targets ‒ vehicles, tanks, concrete fortifications, and personnel ‒ in populated urban areas or remote locations with minimal collateral damage. Featuring low acoustic, visual and thermal signatures and fully gimbaled and stabilized day/night tracking, the Hero-120 delivers critical situational awareness with its advanced data link and real-time intelligence, the company added.
