At a launch altitude of 14,500 ft., the Hero 120 loitering munition system has proven a successful high-altitude operation, with ISR and target engagement capabilities effectively executed at 18,000 ft and above.
UVision USA, the US subsidiary of UVision Air, a global leader in aerial loitering systems, announced the completion of successful High Altitude mission execution of its Hero 120 loitering munition system.
With the ability to identify targets from a high altitude, and conduct pin-point strikes, the system demonstrated a successful sensor-to shooter-cycle closure, carrying a substantial payload of 4.5 kilograms. The upgraded Hero-120 enhances the already proven capabilities with an additional operational discriminator.
Major General (Ret.) Avi Mizrachi, CEO of UVision Air Ltd, the parent company of UVision USA, stated, “The successful execution of a mission from high altitude marks a significant milestone in the expanding capabilities portfolio ofthe Hero-120. This technological achievement was made possible through precise aerodynamic adjustments that enabled the Hero 120 to withst and the challenging conditions of such altitudes. This capability complements the Hero-120’s recently announced ability to launch from a helicopter, further demonstrating the absolute advantage of Hero-120".
The Hero 120 Loitering Munition System is a mid-range, anti-tank system designed to meet the demands of the modern battlefield. It employs high-precision strikes against anti-armor, anti-material, and anti-personnel targets, including tanks, vehicles, and soft targets in urban areas. With minimal collateral damage and a range of multi-purpose warheads, the Hero 120 provides operational users with an effective engagement solution.
