SP's MAI - - UNMANNED -

Is­rael Aero­space In­dus­tries’ (IAI) re­vealed its new Su­per Heron heavy fuel un­manned aerial sys­tem (UAS) dur­ing a spe­cial cer­e­mony held at the IAI chalet at the Sin­ga­pore Air Show.

Joseph Weiss, IAI’s Pres­i­dent and CEO, said: “We are proud to in­tro­duce the new gen­er­a­tion of IAI’s leading UAS. Based on IAI’s world-renowned Heron UAS, the Su­per Heron in­tro­duces the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and re-de­fines medium-al­ti­tude long-en­durance (MALE) UAS.”

De­vel­oped by IAI to meet grow­ing in­ter­est among leading cus­tomers, the Su­per Heron fea­tures a heavy fuel 200 horse­power en­gine and an ad­vanced propul­sion sys­tem, which sig­nif­i­cantly en­hances the UAS’ ca­pac­ity, rate of climb, and per­for­mance. Su­per Heron’s air speed ex­ceeds 150 KTAS (knots true air­speed).
