The Hermes 90 UAS flight series demonstrated day and night enhanced capabilities such as target recognition capabilities, both day (CCD) and night (FLIR), tracking of both mobile and stationary targets and an accurate Laser Range-Finder. The enhanced Micro CoMPASS also offers ainnovative 3-axis configuration allowing an impressive level of stabilization and high-quality high-resolution imagery for a payload of its compact size.
The payload's thermal night camera features continuous zoom, allowing a wide observation field, thus providing immediate mission intelligence and fast detection/recognition ratio to maximize overall system agile response and sensor to shooter loop capability.
Among the main features of the Hermes 90: "fly by camera" flight mode , easy, user-friendly operation, over 15 hours endurance, mission range of more than 100 kilometers, and a high payload weight capacity in this class of UAS. The Hermes 90 has automatic dual launch and recovery methods, including integral launcher for point launch and recovery on non-prepared surfaces without using any dedicated ground equipment, as well as strip take off and landing.
The system enables full integration with any C4I system, for fast imagery dissemination as well as easy coordination among the operational forces in the field. Thanks to these capabilities, the Hermes 90 is highly suited for various missions and particularly maneuvering forces, as well as homeland defense and other non-military missions.
