UVision Hero-30 eyes South Korea

21st September 2016 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


UVision Air and Firstec have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), under which Firstec will market and sell UVision’s Hero-30 lethal loitering systems in the South Korean market.

According to UVision, South Korea is a strategic market that has a need for Hero-30 type capabilities to meet the complex and evolving threats facing the country.

The Hero-30 lethal loitering system is designed to deliver short-range pinpoint strikes in populated urban areas or remote locations while minimising collateral damage.

The Hero family comprises six systems, designed for assorted tasks at various ranges. Hero systems enable high-speed transit flight and low-speed loitering, depending on the tactical or strategic needs of the mission – handling moving targets, light-duty vehicles, tanks, and other strategic objectives. 

If an attack is aborted, the Hero systems can be assigned to a different target or recalled. They offer low noise and thermal signatures, and can integrate advanced stabilised electro-optics day/night cameras. The systems can be deployed from air, land or sea.
