    Israeli defense company UVision and US defense contractor Raytheon will offer US Army small units a new capability with a fully-developed, portable, lethal loitering system, according to defense contractor Raytheon.

    WASHINGTON(Sputnik) — Israel’s Hero-30 remotely-operated lethal loitering airborne system will be altered for use by the US military under a joint venture with the Israeli defense company UVision, defense contractor Raytheon announced in a press release on Friday.

    UVision’s Hero-30 drone can be launched from a modified Humvee, giving the system portability needed by small military units in battlefield situations, the release explained.

    "Raytheon and UVision will offer US Army small units a new capability with a fully-developed, portable, lethal loitering system," Raytheon Advanced Missile Systems Vice President Thomas Bussing said.

    HERO drones are designed to move quickly to target areas, remain aloft while locating targets, and fire missiles with pinpoint accuracy to minimize civilian casualties, according to UVision.
