HAIFA, ISRAEL (BNS): Elbit Systems has commenced global marketing of the Hermes 900 StarLiner, a powerful medium altitude long endurance (MALE) unmanned aircraft system (UAS).

The UAS features adverse weather capabilities and is fully compliant with NATO’s Standardization Agreement (STANAG) 4671, qualifying it to be integrated into civilian airspace and fly in the same environment with manned aircraft.

A series of the Hermes 900 StarLiner known as Hermes 900 HFE in the Swiss programme, is currently being assembled for the Swiss Armed Forces and is scheduled to be delivered and integrated into Switzerland NAS during 2019, Elbit said in a statement.

Drawing on the legacy of the widely operational Hermes 900 and Hermes 450 and their proven technologies, Elbit Systems has conducted an extensive multi-year R&D effort focusing on producing a mature UAS that complies with civilian airspace regulations and can be safely integrated into European NAS, it said.

“Anticipating the rising security need for operating unmanned aircraft in the same environment with civilian manned aircraft enabled us to achieve this breakthrough, Elad Aharonson, Executive VP and GM of Elbit Systems ISTAR Division, said.

We are committed to maintain our approach of technological innovation based on an extensive operational experience and provide our customers with advanced yet mature systems that enhance effectiveness and safety when coping with the evolving national security needs”.
