Bental's unified G-054 power pack selected for Elbit Hermes 90 UAV

17th June 2009 - 10:50 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Bental Industries has announced it will integrate its starter generator system G-054 on Elbit Systems' new Hermes 90 UAV. Slated for debut at the Paris Air Show this year, the Hermes 90 will utilise Bental's power pack to provide, as part of the UAV gasoline engine, electric power to its systems.

Bental’s system boasts hundreds of successful flight hours, many under strenuous combat conditions. These sophisticated, PMG (permanent magnet generator) brushless DC starter generator systems, based on rare earth magnet technology, are specifically designed for integration on UAV gasoline engines.  

'Elbit Systems's selection of our G-054 starter generators to be integrated on its new Hermes 90 UAVs is particularly noteworthy,' says Shmuel Mandel, Bental's CEO. He goes on to say that, 'the Hermes 90 Paris exhibition debut with Bental's starter generators onboard further illustrates the remarkable capabilities of our power packs. This is especially so given the imperative of such a new platform to provide systems with equally notable performance parameters. With our G-054 unified systems as part of Elbit Systems' cutting-edge UAVs, we continue to demonstrate that we're still the choice for those seeking to match their platform's advantage with equally superior integrated systems.'
