The HT-100 can fly for up to six hours at a speed of 120 kmh.

Eight new missile, guided munition, and jammer systems are also being introduced, including: NASEF-20 a sub-sonic, low-cost cruise missile (LCCM) launched from unmanned aircraft and designed for precision engagement against soft targets, and is guided by the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS); NASEF-125 sub-sonic cruise and anti-ship missile, capable of engaging ground and surface targets with Imaging Infrared (IIR) and active homing radar seekers and RASH-3H high-precision guided munition system capable of engaging small to medium-sized threats.

Co-developed with the Brazilian Navy, and Brazilian Smart Weapons and High-Tech System specialist, SIATT, in which EDGE has a 50 percent shareholding, EDGE has launched the all-weather, extended range National Surface Anti-Ship Missile (MANSUP-ER), developed to meet the defence requirements of both the UAE and Brazilian navies, and for international export.
