IAI and Elbit's leverage their advanced in-house capabilities in air vehicle and mission system design and production, communications, sensors and other payloads, simulation systems, integration and program management capabilities to provide cutting-edge, cost-effective turnkey UAS solutions for their customers. They are also active in partnership activities with local industry and customers, adapting our systems to overall customer program requirements.

OTHER UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEMS

HERMES 450 ELBIT SYSTEMS

Hermes 450 is a multi-role high-performance tactical UAS. As the primary platform of the IDF in counter-terror operations,
Hermes 450 is a mature and combat-proven UAS with over 300,000 operational flight hours and a class-leading safety and reliability record.

MAGNI ELBIT SYSTEMS

MAGNI is a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) Micro-Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), designed to deliver real-time Intelligence to maneuvering forces. The compact, multi-rotor tactical platform features fully autonomous operation and advanced control software that enables modifications for a wide range of operational scenarios. The fully foldable, vehicle-launched UAS can be rapidly deployed by a single operator.

HERMES 45 ELBIT SYSTEMS

Hermes 45 is a Multi-Mission Small Tactical Unmanned Aircraft System (STUAS) designed for land and maritime operations with a wide range of advanced payloads.

HERON TP IAI

The IAI Heron TP is a multi-role, advanced, long range Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) for strategic missions. It is equipped with automatic taxi-takeoff and landing systems (ATOL), satellite communication (SATCOM) for extended range, fully redundant avionics and more.

SUPER HERON ISRAELI AEROSPACE INDUSTRIES

Super Heron refinement of the Heron UAS. The Super Heron has a 200-horsepower diesel engine that increases its rate of climb and performance. Its range is 250 km (160 mi) line-of-sight and 1,000 km (620 mi) by satellite control. Endurance is 45 hours at a maximum altitude of 30,000 ft (9,100 m). Cruising speed is 60 to 80 kn (110 to 150 km/h; 69 to 92 mph) and top speed over 150 kn (280 km/h; 170 mph).

HAROP KILLER DRONE IAI

The IAI Harop (or IAI Harpy 2) is a loitering munition developed by the MBT division of Israel Aerospace Industries. It is an anti-radiation drone that can autonomously home in on radio emissions. This SEAD-optimized loitering munition is designed to loiter the battlefield and attack targets by self-destructing into them. The drone can either operate fully autonomously, using its anti-radar homing system, or it can take a human-in-the-loop mode. If a target is not engaged, the drone will return and land itself back at base.
