A newly configured advanced launcher offers reduced system weight, greater safety and ease-of-use during launch, and can be easily mounted on military platforms. The Hero-30 system was developed by UVision Air, and is part of the HERO loitering systems family.
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.
Man-pack portable, the Hero-30 is the smallest system in the UVision family of smart loitering systems. Deployable within minutes, the Hero-30 is capable of speeds of up to 100 knots and is ideal for anti-personnel and light-skinned-vehicle attack missions.
The new launcher makes the system even lighter and therefore easier to operate, while also providing greater safety during launch, thanks to the external compressed air canister.
Another development of the company is the advanced simulation system for the HERO loitering system, for use by training forces with the HERO system, thus avoiding the costs, risks and constraints inherent in live fire missions, as reported by uasvision.com.
“Both the new launcher and the simulation system have been developed with the aim of enhancing efficiency of military forces,” says Noam Levitt, CEO of UVision. “The simulation system enables training in a virtual environment in order to fully prepare soldiers for live missions. In the field, the new launcher, with its reduced weight and external compressed air canister, offers the soldier operational efficiencies and ease of use. Both the HERO system and the new launcher are already being used by forces worldwide.”
