The 2019 Paris Air Show is the stage for the global release of the Elbit Systems Hermes 45 UAS.
Hermes 45 offers a unique combination of extended range and duration with point launch and recovery on both land and maritime platforms.
The new Small Tactical Unmanned Aerial System enhances Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities at the brigade and division levels and also for naval applications.
Hermes 45 features flight range of 200km or an extended Beyond Line of Sight range via satellite communication. An innovative internal payload bay supports multi-payload operation, including EO/IR, Marine-Radar, Terrain Dominance, Electronic Warfare (EW) and communications. The Hermes 45 is operated by a two-person crew, launched from a short onboard platform rail, and is recovered by an automated spot landing system.
