Paris Air Show 2015: UVision Unveils Full Line of Multi-Operational Precision Loitering Solutions

UVision, a technological developer of cost-effective, lethal aerial loitering systems, unveiled its full line of multi-operational BLOS (Beyond Line of Sight) precision loitering solutions for a range of operational scenarios at Paris Air Show 2015 yesterday: The HERO family.

UVision's HERO line delivers a significant advantage in today’s asymmetric conflicts. With advanced deployment, target acquisition and attack capabilities, the systems can be utilised by all military echelons, from the individual soldier to central command, for both strategic and tactical targets. Their ability to loiter above the target – and their extreme maneuverability – enable smart, real-time decision-making.

The HERO family can carry out pinpoint strikes in urban areas or remote locations, with minimal collateral damage. With extremely low noise and thermal signature, these systems integrate highly advanced stabilized Electro-Optics day/night cameras and are ideal for deployment from land, air and sea. According to Yair Dubester, President & CEO: "As pioneers in the field of miniature aerial munitions systems, we are responsive to the needs of our customers, and have developed a complete family of solutions, suited to a wide range of applications and scenarios. We have invested considerable resources in development in order to enable our customers to benefit from cutting-edge solutions – in terms of electro-optics, warheads, extended loitering time, and a wider communication radius. All these features make the HERO family the most advanced in the fieldBuilt on a proven track record in the defense industry, we will unveil the entire new generation of the HERO family. In addition, a simulator will enable visitors to experience the ease of operation of these systems."

HERO systems enable high-speed transit flight and low-speed loitering, depending on the tactical or strategic needs of the mission – handling moving targets, moving light-duty vehicles, tanks, and other strategic objectives. The systems allow targets to be predetermined using GPS, or visually selected when the target presents itself. HERO’s advanced datalink and real-time intelligence delivers up-to-the-minute situational awareness. In cases where the attack is aborted, HERO systems can be recalled and another target selected.
