Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has unveiled the new tactical Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) of the Heron Family – the T-Heron.

According to Avi Bleser VP marketing & sales of IAI’s military aircraft group, the new version is designed for tactical missions on the battlefield. “The T-Heron is expected to be used extensively by ground troops and coastal guards, as well as by other protection forces. With a versatile design and suitable for a variety of payloads, it features the most advanced IAI technologies”.

Its Rotax 912 ISC engine takes it to a maximum altitude of 24,000 feet, speed of 120 knots and supports 4 useful payloads concurrently with a total weight of up to 400 pound.

The T-Heron complies with global standards, including STANAG 4671 requirements.

The T-Heron UAS has a retractable nose landing gear, to allow a radar payload an unobstructed field of view.

According to Bleser the T-Heron has a full automatic and landing (ATOL) capability.
