This upgrade will advance these Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAS to the latest configuration, enabling extension of  the operational range to more than 1000km and performing the takeoff and landing autonomously and independent of GPS reception.  

Since its debut 10 years ago, the Hermes 900 UAS was selected by numerous customers across four continents, performing a wide range of missions in the fields of Intelligence Surveillance Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR), homeland security and maritime search and rescue.
