Press Release, Washington DC, 27 March 2024: UVision Inc. and SAIC (Science Applications International Corp). are proud to announce a landmark collaboration agreement for the manufacturing of the Hero 120 Loitering Munition system.

This cutting-edge defence solution will be produced in Charleston, South Carolina, USA, significantly enhancing rapid response capabilities for all UVision USA clients in the United States. The collaboration with SAIC is aimed at establishing a fully independent domestic supply chain, ensuring that UVision’s USA clients benefit from reduced dependency on international supply chains, faster delivery times, local training by expert teams, and comprehensive post-sale support and maintenance.

Major General (Ret.) Avi Mizrachi, Chairman of the BOD of UVision USA, stated “UVision USA Inc.’s business activity has expanded significantly in the second half of 2023, with several new contracts signed with the US military and other government bodies. Our collaboration with SAIC stems from the need to provide a complete solution to our US clients, independent of the international supply chain. We are proud to announce that the manufacturing facility itself will commence operations in March 2024”.
