UVision, Firstec sign South Korea agreement
UVision Air has signed a follow-on agreement with South Korea’s Firstec for the marketing and supply of its loitering munition systems, the company announced on 18 October.
The agreement will see the short-range Hero 30 system marketed in South Korea by Firstec. According to UVision, South Korea has a current requirement for loitering munitions.
The Hero 30 is a smart loitering system designed to deliver short-range pinpoint strikes in remote locations, or in populated urban areas where fast strike and the need to minimise collateral damage are key. The system offers high-speed transit flight and low-speed loitering with the ability to strike moving targets. The system can also be configured for ISR as a platform for gathering intelligence.
Yong Woo Jeon, CEO and president of Firstec, said: ‘This agreement will allow Firstec to boost its effort to become a total solution provider in Korea for defence and unmanned systems. We hope that this agreement will lead to expanded cooperation with the South Korean security market and further the country’s technological and defence capabilities.’
