Elbit Systems unveils at the Paris Air Show: Hermes?90

Elbit Systems : 16 June, 2009  (New Product)
Next generation of Low-Medium Altitude UAS highly suited for maneuvering forces
Elbit Systems Ltd., unveils during the Paris Air Show its new UAV system (UAS) Hermes®90, which draws on the rich experience and performance-proven capabilities of Elbit Systems' Skylark® and Hermes® UAS families.

Among the main features of the Hermes®90: high survivability, long endurance up to 18 hours, mission range of up to 100 kilometers, varied payloads integration capability and dual launch and recovery methods including integral launcher for point launch and recovery on non-prepared surfaces without using any dedicated ground equipment, as well as strip operation. The system enables full integration with any C4I system, for fast imagery dissemination as well as easy coordination among the operational forces in the field. Thanks to these capabilities, the Hermes®90 is highly suited for various missions and particularly maneuvering forces. The Hermes®90 system supports open area as well as urban warfare scenarios for war time, peace keeping, low intensity conflict, security, homeland defense and other non-military missions.

The Hermes®90 performs day, night and adverse weather missions. The systems' compact and lightweight features enable it to be carried onboard two field class vehicles (e.g. Humvee) and to be easily deployed in full cycle operations by a two or three-person crew. The system includes an advanced Ground Control Station (GCS) for monitoring and controlling the mission, mounted onboard one of the field class vehicles. The systems' autonomous capabilities together with the simple operating abilities through all of the missions' stages, facilitate optimal deployment, without the need for complex training or special skills. The advanced UAS incorporates highly autonomous capabilities suitable for various missions and flight modes common to all the Hermes® and Skylark® families of UAS.


The basic Hermes®90 configuration includes a Micro-Compass™ electro-optic payload, featuring exceptional surveillance performance, which includes a color CCD day camera, 3rd generation cooled thermal imaging and a laser marker. The Micro Compass™ electro-optic payload can also include a laser range finder or a laser designator. In addition to the electro-optic payload, the new Hermes®90 is integratable with other payloads for various operational missions.
