Israel’s Uvision unveils its Smallest version of Hero-30 system



Uvision, the Israel manufacturer of unmanned expandable unmanned air systems (UAS), has unveiled its Hero-30 system, the smallest version of its family of such systems.

The Hero-30 loitering munition, is a small (3kg) expendable very accurate munitions carried in a canister , that is used also as a pneumatic launcher. After launch, the electric motor is turned on.

The HERO-30 is equipped with a day/night sensor and has an endurance of 30 minutes.

According to Yair Dubester, CEO of Uvision, the cruciform design gives the systems a “super maneuverability”.

After the HERO-30is launched, it locks on the predesigned target and transmits the video to the operator using a hand held unit.

The HERO-30 is loitering in altitudes between 300 and 600 meters above the ground. The data link, that was developed for the system, can control it in ranges of 5 -10 or 40 km, depending on the antenna used.

Dubester said that the operator could abort the mission if the circumstances require it.

The HER0-30 is 78 cm long and has a wingspan of 80 cm.

The system is currently armed with an anti personnel warhead but according to Uvision’s CEO, other warheads will be available in the near future.

The demand for small loitering munitions systems has increased in recent years, mainly due to the operational lessons from the war against the international terror.

The capability of small units to attack sources of fire independently has become crucial in combat in urban areas.
