UVision Air Ltd. — a company that specializes in lethal aerial loitering systems of all sizes — has successfully demonstrated the Hero-400EC extended-range loitering system for a strategic customer. The demonstration, which took place in southern Israel late last year, proved the tracking and lock-on capabilities of the system using a moving vehicle and a human target in various operational scenarios as well as its mission-abort capabilities. The ability to strike a target with exceptional precision was also demonstrated.

The Hero-400EC features a new electric motor that delivers high-speed transit and low-speed loitering with much lower acoustic and thermal signatures, thus improving stealth. The unique aerodynamic cruciform design delivers high precision terminal engagement accuracy against static and moving targets or targets in confined urban environments, thus reducing collateral damage.

The Hero-400EC is optimized for the loitering munition role, where the deployable wings allow for any angle of attack, and delivers missile-level pinpoint strike capabilities. The multi-purpose, 10kg warhead (tandem, high explosive) allows engagement of a broad range of targets, including fortified positions and main battle tanks.

The system is 2.1 meters in length, has a wing-span (tip-to-tip) of 2.4 meters, and has a maximum take-off weight of 40kg. The 400EC retains a stabilized electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) payload, a line-of-sight two-way data link with a range of 40 km-150 km, a manin-the-loop capability, and two-hour endurance. An advanced abort capability enables automatic reentry into the loitering mode, mission reassignment or return to the recovery area using a parachute. Operational altitude is 18,000ft with loitering/transit speeds of 50-150kts. Controlled by a single operator, the Hero-400EC can be either rail-launched or launched from a modular multitube canister that can be integrated on the user's platform of choice.

The HERO family includes eight systems designed for assorted tasks at various ranges. HERO systems enable highspeed transit flight and low-speed loitering, depending on the tactical or strategic needs of the mission - handling moving targets, moving light-duty vehicles, tanks, and other strategic objectives. The HERO systems may be provided in the ISR configuration, enabling the use of the platform as a means for gathering intelligence - or as a missile, enabling precision attacks on targets, using warheads of various types and weights.

The HERO family can carry out pinpoint strikes in urban areas or remote locations, with minimal collateral damage. In cases where an attack is aborted, HERO systems can be recalled and another target selected. With extremely low noise and thermal signature, these systems integrate highly advanced stabilized Electro-Optics day/night cameras and are ideal for deployment from air, land and sea.
