Israel's UVision Air, a designer and manufacturer of loitering munition systems, announced that it will present two advanced simulator configurations for the first time at the IDEX 2021 exhibition, which will take place in Abu Dhabi next week. The new simulators complement the previously-released classroom simulator training system by enabling the operator to train during deployments. UVision said it will also display the high precision, combat-proven Hero series of loitering munitions at the exhibition.

According to the company, UVision’s Hero Training and Simulation System provides an advanced loitering weapon and payload simulation in a virtual realistic environment. With the two new configurations, UVision presents a comprehensive solution for Hero operators allowing a higher level of training flexibility. The classroom configuration provides a robust simulation solution with a rich and versatile scenario generator for multiple trainees. The Portable & Embedded field simulator configurations allow Hero operators continuous hands-on training at various levels during deployments, thus maintaining the highest level of operational proficiency and readiness anytime and anywhere, UVision said.

The Hero series of loitering munition systems provide the tactical echelons with unprecedented precise lethal capabilities while minimizing sensor-to-shooter cycles and maintaining operational independence. Such advantages are truly "battlefield game changers" recognized by major NATO military forces and leading operational customers worldwide who use the Hero series in field operations, according to the company.
