We are pleased to announce our cooperation with FIRSTEC, a leading and long-established Korean manufacturer in the areas of aerospace and aviation", said Noam Levitt, UVision Chief Executive Officer. "South Korea is a strategic market for us for two main reasons. First, we have identified a need in this market for systems such as our HERO-30, which can effectively meet the complex and evolving threats faced by South Korea. In addition, we see it as a technology leader in the area and as such, a starting point for the entire Asian market.”

According to Yong Woo Jeon, CEO and President of FIRSTEC, “We are proud to represent UVision in Korea – a pioneer in the area of loitering munition systems, and one of the few companies with products in this field that have already been sold and proven. This will be a stepping stone for FIRSTEC in strengthening its position as a leading provider of total unmanned systems in Korea. During the first stage, we will jointly produce and market HERO-30 systems for the local market."

The HERO 30 – the smallest of UVision's HERO family of Smart Loitering Systems - is designed to deliver short-range pinpoint strikes in remote locations or in populated urban areas where speed of target opportunity response and minimizing collateral damage are of prime importance. Deployable within minutes, Hero 30 is capable of speeds of up to 100 knots and has a maximum range of 40 km.
