Elbit Systems fields more capable drone.

THE HERMES 900, which debuted at the 2007 Paris Air Show, is a tactical, medium altitude, long endurance unmanned aerial vehicle. Built by Elbit Systems Ltd. of Haifa, Israel, the UAV has a 15-meter wingspan and is designed to handle multiple payload configurations.

The all-weather platform is steered by the company's universal ground control system, which can simultaneously control two UAVs via a single operator. The Hermes 900 is equipped with an independent auto takeoff and landing system.
