The project is a part of the Brazilian Air Forces' objective to establish independent UAS capabilities, allowing for self-reliant operation and development of UAS in Brazil, according to the company news release.
"The Brazilian Air Force is considered a global leader, and the selection attests to the quality and maturity of our UAS, currently operational with more than 20 customers worldwide," Joseph Ackerman, President and CEO of Elbit Systems, was quoted as saying in the news release.
Hermes 450 is an experienced and mature UAS that has, to date, accumulated over 200,000 operational flight hours in various arenas worldwide.
Its capabilities are suitable both for homeland security and anti-terror missions, and it can be equipped with a variety of advanced sensors, according to customers' requirements.
As part of the development of the Brazilian Air Forces' future UAS, AEL will utilise technological capabilities of its parent company, Elbit Systems, and will also work with local Brazilian industries.
