El­bit de­liv­ers Her­mes 900 UAS to a cus­tomer in the Amer­i­cas


El­bit Sys­tems Ltd has de­liv­ered a Her­mes 900 un­manned air­craft sys­tem (UAS) to a cus­tomer in the Amer­i­cas. The pro­gramme in­cludes de­liv­ery of ESL’s Her­mes 900 un­manned air ve­hi­cles, Uni­ver­sal Ground Con­trol Sta­tions (UGCS) in­clud­ing in­stal­la­tion in a mis­sion con­trol cen­tre, ad­vanced elec­tro-op­tic sys­tems and ad­di­tional unique sys­tems.

Due to high de­mand, ESL has in­creased its UAS pro­duc­tion ac­tiv­i­ties and will soon be de­liv­er­ing ad­di­tional Her­mes 900 sys­tems to other in­ter­na­tional cus­tomers,

ESL an­nounced on De­cem­ber 31, 2012, that it was awarded a sec­ond con­tract to sup- ply a wide range of Her­mes 900 UAS to the Is­rael de­fence forces (IDF). The con­tract, a fol­low-on to the ini­tial IDF or­der for Her­mes 900 in 2010, calls for devel­op­ment of ad­di­tional ad­vanced UAS ca­pa­bil­i­ties as well as UAS main­te­nance ser­vices. On Jan­uary 27, 2013, ESL an­nounced that it re­ceived an ap­prox­i­mately $35 mil­lion con­tract from the Is­rael Min­istry of De­fense for the devel­op­ment of ad­vanced features for UAS. One of the mis­sion re­quire­ments is the quick re­con­fig­u­ra­tion of the UAS’ pay­loads.
