UVision Air Ltd will unveil the Hero-400EC loitering system's Multi-Canister Launcher at the Paris Air Show scheduled to take place between 16-23 June, 2019.
Due to its long range and endurance capabilities, the Hero-400EC loitering system can be launched from the new multi-canister launcher safely away from enemy lines from a modular multi-tube canister launcher mounted on a range of land or naval platforms, the company said in a statement Wednesday.
Weighing 650 kg including 6 munitions, the system can also be deployed in Forward Operating Bases and controlled from remote locations. Customers can choose from 4-12 lethal loitering munitions, which can be stored, transported and launched from the sealed canisters, making it a versatile asset on the battlefield.
The Hero-400EC long-range, high-precision Loitering munition system has a low acoustic, visual and thermal signature that can locate, track and strike static and moving targets with high accuracy, stealth and minimal collateral damage. Precision strike capabilities, extended endurance of up to 2 hours, and multi-purpose warhead ‒ including concrete piercing, anti-tank, and anti-personnel that handle different types of targets with exceptional accuracy ‒ enable long-range & versatile missions.
The Hero-400EC provides an advanced mid-air abort capability that allows automatic re- entry into loitering mode, re-engagement, or return to the recovery area using a parachute.
At the Paris Air Show, UVision will also introduce for the first time the new configuration of the Hero-120 ‒ a portable, modular, customizable loitering weapon system which can be fitted with a range of powerful multi-purpose warheads.
Its high-speed transit flight and low-speed loitering and rapid reaction in response to time- sensitive targets deliver a critical advantage in confined and populated battlefields. It has an extended endurance of over an hour and a loitering range of up to 40 km, can be independently operated by frontline forces. Featuring low acoustic, visual and thermal signatures and fully gimbaled and stabilized day/night tracking, the Hero-120 delivers critical situational awareness with its advanced data link and real- time intelligence.
