Our Full Mission/Full Motion Simulators (FMS) for the Mi-17 Helicopter provides training that covers every aspect of Helicopter routines in addition to emergency and mission operations for diverse scenarios. The FMS simulates a variety of flight conditions and assures tactical environment preparedness. Built on a moving structure, the FMS simulates the feeling of flight under various conditions, providing pilots with a realistic flight experience.

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

The Company's UAS have earned international recognition and are playing increasingly vital roles in the global war on terrorism. Military and homeland security forces worldwide benefit from these UAS as their sophisticated capabilities and onboard systems take on many of the complex challenges previously performed solely by manned aircraft.

Hermes 90 features high survivability and is a long endurance UAS with 18 hours mission range of up to 100 kilometres. Hermes 90 provides various 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 between the operational forces in the field. The Hermes 90 is ideal for manoeuvring forces and maritime forces using its heavy fuel engine configuration, enabling refuelling, launch and recovery on naval platforms and ships.

Hermes90 will be presented in real-size in the Elbit Sisteme Romania booth.

Skylark I-LE

This new model Skylark unmanned aircraft system is based on the vast experience accumulated by Skylark I in thousands of hours in operational flight in various war zones (Iraq and Afghanistan). In addition to major improvements implemented, based on extensive operational experience, Skylark I-LE has been upgraded to offer longer endurance of up to three hours and enhanced robustness, two crucial features that ensure overall improved operational performance. Skylark I-LE was selected by the Israeli Defence Forces to equip the battalion-level for all Ground Forces, including training and logistics support.
