Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) today unveiled the newest member in its Loitering Munitions (LM) family, the Maritime Harop that provides an operational response for a range of naval vessels, from offshore patrol vessels to naval frigates.
The technological adjustments of the marine Harop include a launcher with new marine configuration and adjustments of the communication channel of the loitering munition. It searches, detects and attacks high value relocatable, time critical, land or sea-based moving targets with pinpoint accuracy at long ranges.
Boaz Levi, IAI's Executive Vice President and General Manager of Systems, Missiles & Space Group, commented: "The maritime Harop is an operational weapon system which provides navies with unique response and at good cost-benefit ratio. As such, it has attracted the interest of different customers worldwide. When used on marine platforms, the Harop provides excellent operational alternative to sea-sea missiles as well as a range of additional uses such as intelligence gathering and allowing the operator to choose the precise timing of the attack. It is a welcome addition to IAI's solution offering for loitering munition missiles".
HAROP is a long endurance LM which can be launched from a variety of platforms, and is equipped with tactical UAV capabilities: high performance FLIR/ color CCD EO seeker with 360 degrees hemispherical coverage. A HAROP unit is comprised of LM launchers and a Mission Control Shelter (MCS) that enables missile control with a 'Man in the Loop' operation, and real time engagement or abort attack capability to avoid collateral damage. The HAROP can be applied to a variety of battle scenarios, including low and high intensity conflicts, urban warfare and counter terror operations.
