UVision Air Ltd. a company that specializes in loitering munitions systems of all sizes for a variety of missions, has demonstrated its Hero-30 compatibility for a number of naval missions. The high-precision, lightweight portable Hero-30 loitering munition system was evaluated by the naval force of a major NATO member and proved its capabilities. The system demonstrated its capabilities in the area of high-precision strikes, tracking, and lock-on on a moving target in various operational naval scenarios and mission-abort capabilities. The trial demonstrated the Hero-30 versatility and adaptability to various missions in a maritime environment.

The Hero-30 portable tactical combat proven system is deployable within minutes, is capable of speeds of up to 100 knots and is ideal for missions that require no collateral damage assurance. Weighing only 3 kg, it carries a 0.5 kg warhead and reaches a range of up to 40 km. With an electrical silent and stealth engine and a canister that allows launching from a variety of existing platforms, it provides extreme mission flexibility for the troops.

The climax of the sea trials was a strike on a moving target. The simulated threat of a suicide speedboat laden with explosives was executed with extreme precision and the moving target (speed of 20 knots) was struck with the inert training round amidships. All of this was performed in a completely GPS denied environment.

The HERO series is comprised of seven loitering munitions systems (Hero-30, Hero-70, Hero-120, Hero-250, Hero-400EC, Hero-900, Hero-1250), designed for different missions at various ranges using warheads of various types. The HERO systems enable forces in the front-line to independently locate time sensitive targets, track and attack with pinpoint precision to handle different missions ranging from lightweight static or moving targets (such as light-duty vehicles and human targets) to larger fortified or heavily armored targets such as MBT (Main Battle Tank) and other strategic objectives.

The HERO systems may also be provided in ISR configuration, allowing the use of the platform as a means of gathering intelligence. The HERO series can carry out pinpoint strikes in urban areas or remote locations, with minimal collateral damage. In cases where an attack is aborted, the systems can be recalled and another target selected. With extremely low noise and thermal signature, these systems integrate highly advanced, stabilized electro-optic day/night cameras, and are ideal for deployment from air, land and sea.
