At DSEI 2019 UVision will present an Integrated Solution for Special Forces comprising HERO Loitering Munitions mounted on an EINSA NETON Tactical Vehicle.
Press Release: 04 September 2019: UVision Air Ltd., a global pioneer in the area of lethal loitering systems for a wide variety of missions, will present an integrated solution for Special Forces, consisting of the Hero Loitering Munitions mounted on an EINSA NETON tactical vehicle that meets the most stringent Special Forces’ requirements.
UVision’s products are easily adapted to a wide range of naval and ground platforms. At DSEI, the company will demonstrate its unique support for Special Forces. According to Major General (Ret.) Avi Mizrachi, CEO of UVision, “As pioneers in the area of unmanned loitering munition systems, we are responsive to our customers’ needs, and have therefore developed cooperative relationships with companies such as EINSA in order to provide comprehensive solutions for forces operating in the field. UVision’s products are optimised for a variety of platforms, applications and scenarios, providing capabilities that enable combat forces to have better flexibility and control on the battlefield.”
The EINSA NETON is an ultrafast, all-terrain, air transportable vehicle. Weighing around 2000 kg, with a load capacity of 1000 kg and a maximum speed of 160 km/h, it can seat up to 9 fighters. Multiple Hero systems can be installed on each EINSA NETON vehicle allowing on-board launching or dismounted ground deployed launch capabilities.
In addition to the integrated solution, UVision will also display at DSEI the Hero-30, the newly introduced Hero-120, the Hero-400EC and the HERO Simulation System. High-precision Hero-30 Loitering Munition system is lightweight, man-pack portable, easy to operate, and deployed within minutes. It is capable of speeds up to 100 knots, and has an endurance of 30 minutes. The system can be quickly and efficiently operated by Special Forces in the field without special training.
The Hero-30 offers reduced system weight, greater safety and ease-of-use during launch, and can be easily mounted on military platforms. Its pneumatic launch, low noise and low thermal signature make the Hero-30 an invisible, high-precision surprise and lethal attacker, providing a major asset to the fighting force.
The NEW Hero-120 Loitering Munition: At DSEI, UVision will showcase the new configuration of the Hero-120 ‒ a portable, modular, customisable loitering weapon system which can be fitted with a range of powerful multi-purpose warheads. The versatile, precision, multi-operational system with a unique aerodynamic structure can carry out pinpoint strikes against mid-range hard targets ‒ vehicles, tanks, concrete fortifications and personnel ‒ in populated urban areas or remote locations with minimal collateral damage. The lightweight, compact, highly manoeuvrable man-pack configuration, with extended endurance of over an hour and a loitering range of up to 40 km, can be independently operated by frontline forces, precisely striking time-sensitive targets from a wide variety of angles. Providing advanced abort and target re-engagement capabilities, it provides a whole new range of operational possibilities.
The Hero-400EC: This 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, 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. Due to its exceptional manoeuvrability, 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.
The Hero Simulator System: UVision will demonstrate a sophisticated simulation system at the exhibition, allowing a hands-on experience for visitors. The Hero Simulator System is an advanced loitering weapon and payload simulator that allows Loitering Weapon System (LWS) operators to train on the Hero family of Loitering Munitions (LM) in a virtual realistic environment. Users of all levels can train in a wide range of operational scenarios – while avoiding the costs, risks and constraints inherent in live-fire missions. Easy-to-operate, compact, and ready to be used anywhere, the system is available for training 24/7 in all weather conditions.
