Elbit Systems announced earlier this month that it was awarded a contract to supply Hermes 900 Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to a governmental office of a country in the Americas.
The UAS will be operated in a variety of perimeter security missions.
The project will be performed over approximately one year.
The UAS will also include systems such as the Universal Ground Control Stations (UGCS), Elbit Systems Electro-Optics Elop's highly advanced DCoMPASS payload systems, as well as satellite communication systems.
Elad Aharonson, General Manager – Elbit Systems UAS Division, commented: "We are very proud that yet another customer has selected the Hermes 900, following orders by the Israeli Defense Forces and Chile."
