October 11, 2019  UVision Air Ltd. ‒ a global pioneer in the area of lethal loitering systems for a wide variety of missions ‒ expands its cooperation with Firstec Co. Ltd., of South Korea, to provide logistic services to the armed forces of The Republic of Korea (ROK) and localization of Loitering Munition.

Major General (Ret.) Avi Mizrachi, CEO of UVision, expressed great satisfaction regarding the strengthening of the relationship with Firstec ‒ a leading and long-established Korean manufacturer of military systems and components, and member of the Foosung Group.

According to Mr. Mizrachi, “This expansion is part of UVision’s growing commitment to the Korean market ‒ which we see as strategic market. We have identified a need for systems such as our Hero-30 and Hero-120, which can deliver a more effective response to the operational challenges facing the Republic of Korea (ROK). In addition, we see South Korea as a technology leader, and therefore, an ideal starting point for the entire Asian market.”

Firstec Co. Ltd., a UVision Korean business partner, has been marketing the HERO Series in South Korea for several years and has been enabling the introduction of UVision’s Loitering Munition Systems into South Korea.

Over the past year, the collaboration between the companies has expanded to include additional areas of activity. The new agreement increases the opportunities for the two companies to cooperate in providing support and logistics services to the ROK’s Armed Forces. In addition, it enables the implementation of localization processes for UVision products for the Korean Military.

UVision will showcase its Hero-30 and Hero-120 Lethal Loitering Munitions Systems at the Firstec booth at Seoul ADEX 2019 (Booth A-22).



Hero-30 – the leading product of UVision's Hero Family of Smart Loitering Munitions ‒ is lightweight, man-pack portable, easy to operate, and deployed within minutes. This system, which is already operationally deployed in military forces worldwide, is designed to deliver short-range pinpoint strikes in remote locations or in populated urban areas where speed of response to target acquisition and minimizing collateral damage are of prime importance.

Hero-30 is capable of speeds up to 100 knots, and has an endurance of up to 30 minutes. Easily mounted on military platforms, its pneumatic launch, low noise and low thermal signature make the Hero-30 a major asset to the fighting force.


Hero-120 is a portable, modular, customizable loitering weapon system which can be fitted with a range of powerful multi-purpose warheads. Its unique aerodynamic structure enables pinpoint strikes in populated urban areas or remote locations with minimal collateral damage. Its high-speed transit flight and low-speed loitering, BLOS capability, and rapid reaction in response to time-sensitive targets, deliver a critical advantage in confined and populated battlefields.

Its extended endurance of over an hour and its loitering range of up to 40 km enable independent operation by frontline forces, with precision strikes of time-sensitive targets. Featuring low acoustic, visual and thermal signatures and fully gimbaled and stabilized day/night tracking, the Hero-120 delivers critical situational awareness with its advanced data link and real-time intelligence. Recoverable using a parachute, the system is also cost-effective.
