Hermes 1500


Date:2020-12-07 Source:israeli-weapons By:Globalmil Viewed:

This is a large endurance UAV that can easily be mistaken for any number of private twin-engine passenger aircraft. It is ifact a well-appointed UAV for long-range surveillance and tactical reconnaissance. These aircraft were not used by the Israelis, but were bought by several Israeli allies and business interests, most notably the South Africans, Argentines, and Singapore, as well as some civilian scientific agencies for land survey and mapmaking. 
In an press release on 2 June 1998, Elbit Systems Ltd announced the first flight of the Hermes 1500.
Although Hermes 450 has a 20-hour endurance and a ceiling of 18,000 ft, there is, according to Israeli Defence Force sources, still a necessity in future operations for UAVs which surpass both these specifications. Baring this in mind, both companies are also continuing to development medium altitude long endurance (MALE) UAVs. In an attempt to meet this future requirement, Elbit/Silver Arrow is working on its twin-engined Hermes 1500 and IAI/MALAT, the Heron 1.
