Latin-American Country To Acquire Elbit Hermes 900 UAS

Selection Follows Initial Order The Aircraft By The Israeli Defense Forces

A contract with an unnamed Latin American country has been awarded to Elbit Systems to supply that country with the Hermes 900 Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The project, announced over the weekend, is reportedly not in an amount that is material to Elbit Systems.

The UAS will also include complementing ground control stations, as well as Elbit Systems Electro-optics - Elop Ltd.'s highly advanced DCoMPASS payload systems and radar systems.

Hermes 900 builds on the vast operational experience of the Hermes 450, the backbone of the Israel Defense Forces' UAS fleet. Hermes 900 offers a range of enhanced capabilities, from higher flight altitude (over 30,000 ft) to longer endurance and larger payload capacity. The system's unique multipurpose payload bay enables it to carry a wide variety of payloads in different shapes and sizes for quick "conversion" between various payload configurations.

"We are very proud of the Hermes 900 selection, a major milestone in our UAS activity, following the Israeli Defense Forces' Hermes 900 order," said Joseph Ackerman, President and CEO of Elbit Systems. "The selection attests to the customer's trust in our cutting edge UAS technology and further strengthens our position as a world leading UAS supplier."
