Silver Arrow HERMES 180

Hermes 180 is a multipurpose reconnaissance drone created by Silver Arrow (Israel). It is intended for reconnaissance, patrolling, monitoring and adjusting fire support. It was made of composite materials, which complicates the process of detecting a drone enemy air defense systems. For surveillance and reconnaissance, Hermes 180 was endowed with a set of equipment from Elbit Systems: infrared and electro-optical sensors, a data transmission system, a laser range finder. A UAV can perform both controlled (by radio) and autonomous flight. The device is launched with the help of a catapult mounted on a car, or a poorly prepared runway.

For the first time, Hermes 180 was presented at 2002 at the Asian Aerospace aviation exhibition. Since 2003, it has been supplied to overseas customers and the Israeli armed forces.
