UVision Air, exhibiting for the first time at IDEX in Abu Dhabi next week, will unveil two advanced simulator configurations for its HERO series of loitering munitions, the company announced on 15 February.
With the two new configurations, UVision offers a comprehensive solution for HERO operators, allowing a higher level of training flexibility. The classroom configuration provides a robust simulation solution with a rich and versatile scenario generator for multiple trainees, while the Portable and Embedded field simulator configurations allow HERO operators continuous hands-on training (at various levels) during deployment, hence maintaining the highest level of operational proficiency and readiness – anytime, anywhere.
The HERO series comprises eight loitering munition systems, designed for different missions at various ranges using various payloads. They are the fastest sensor-to-shooter loitering munitions, allowing forces in the frontline independently to locate time-sensitive targets, and track and attack with pinpoint precision. The munitions can handle missions ranging from lightweight static or moving targets (such as light vehicles and individual personnel) to larger, fortified or heavily armoured targets, such as armoured vehicles, air defences and other strategic objectives. The series’ unique design enables precision strikes in urban areas or remote locations, with minimal collateral damage. If an attack is aborted, the systems can be recalled and another target selected. With extremely low acoustic and thermal signatures, these systems integrate highly advanced, stabilised electro-optic day/night cameras, and are ideal for deployment from air, land and naval platforms.
“The HERO simulators increase the effectiveness of our systems while reducing the operating costs. All of the HERO loitering munition systems meet a wide range of air, naval and ground forces requirements, thus ensuring combat superiority as well as survivability for even the most complex missions. Our latest field-deployed simulator further enhances the reach-out of our systems, and strengthens the proficiency and combat worthiness of the operators,” stated Avi Mizrachi, UVision CEO.
