UVision Air, the global specialist in Loitering Munitions Systems will showcase its Hero-120 and Hero-400EC Loitering Munition systems at DEFEA 2021 in Greece.
Both Loitering Munition systems feature anti-tank capability, providing an all-inclusive solution for countering Main Battle Tanks (MBT).
Hero Loitering Munition systems provide an accurate, effective, and highly lethal response to hard targets, and are able to locate hidden targets, track them and attack at significantly longer ranges than commonly available anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM).
UVision develops and delivers the most advanced & innovative Loitering Munition systems today,” said Major General (Ret.) Avi Mizrachi, CEO of UVision.
“We are happy to participate in DEFEA for the first time, as part of our mission to strengthen our presence within the clients in the region. We anticipate that this exhibition will pave the way for new collaborations in the area.”
As members of the HERO series of loitering munition systems, both the Hero-120 and Hero-400EC can carry multi-purpose warheads for extended lethality against a wide range of targets, as well as having unique attack capabilities from any direction and angle, including top attack.
With long-endurance and low acoustic, visual and thermal signature, the systems can locate, track and strike static and moving targets with pinpoint accuracy.
The ability to launch Loitering Munitions from a remote-controlled multi-canister launcher provides effective deployment of the Hero systems from a variety of platforms – air, land and sea – away from enemy lines.
The Hero-30 incorporates a high level of precision attack and abort capabilities and has a simple-to-operate system to enable front-line forces to initiate operations, as well as to respond to any enemy target or threat that arises, and eliminate it with extreme accuracy.
Its advanced capabilities include striking targets with high tracking precision and lock-on, a last-second-mission-abort, and re-engagement for a second attack attempt or change of target.
Available in various configuration, including man-packed, vehicle mounted or stationary, it is ideally suited to a diverse range of operational scenarios.
The Hero-120 is a high-precision smart loitering munition system with a unique aerodynamic structure that carries out pinpoint strikes against anti-armour, anti-material and anti-personnel targets, including tanks, vehicles, concrete fortifications, and other soft targets in populated urban areas.
The Hero 400EC is a long-range, high-precision loitering munition system with a low acoustic, visual and thermal signature that can locate, track and strike static and moving targets with high accuracy, and minimal collateral damage.
Precision strike capabilities, extended endurance of up to two hours, and a multi-purpose warhead ‒ including concrete piercing, anti-tank, and anti-personnel that handle different types of targets with exceptional accuracy ‒ enable long-range and versatile missions.
The Hero-400EC provides an advanced mid-air abort capability that enables automatic re-entry into loitering mode, re-engagement, or return to the recovery area using a parachute.
The company also offers a realistic virtual training system for the Hero series of Loitering Munitions. With three configurations – classroom, portable and embedded in the operational control unit – presents a comprehensive solution for Hero operators, enabling 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 and embedded field simulator configurations give Hero operators continuous hands-on training, at various levels, during deployments, maintaining the highest level of operational proficiency and readiness – anytime, anywhere.
