Israel's UVision Air Ltd., a leading producer of loitering munitions systems of all sizes for a variety of missions, revealed in a July 13 press release that its high-precision, lightweight man-pack portable Hero-30 system is already in use by various IDF units. The Hero-30 was procured by the Defense Ministry and put to operational use after proving its highly advanced capabilities in an extensive process of evaluation, tests and trials, meeting strict IDF technological and operational requirements.
“Meeting the requirements of today’s new battlefield doctrines for combat operations in complex, dynamic environments is our goal. With a wide range of advanced, cost-effective technologies, the systems enable high-precision strikes with minimal collateral damage. Our range of lethal loitering solutions with their unique characteristics are becoming a core required capability of leading military forces worldwide and of the IDF in particular”, said UVision’s CEO, Maj. Gen. (ret.) Avi Mizrachi.
The Hero-30, developed and manufactured by UVision, incorporates a high level of precision attack and abort capabilities. These simple-to-operate systems allow frontline forces the ability to initiate operation, as well as to respond to any enemy target or threat that arises and eliminate it with pinpoint accuracy. The Hero-30’s on-the-move advanced capabilities include high-precision tracking, lock-on and striking of targets, and last-second mission abort and re-engagement for a second attack or change of target. Its versatile installment configurations (man-packed, vehicle mounted or stationary) make it perfectly suitable for diverse operational scenarios.
