MCA test Elbit Sea Rescue Drone

Elbit Systems UK recently demonstrated the Hermes 900 Maritime Search & Rescue Flights for the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency, with Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) missions.

The Hermes 900 was deployed on a range of missions that simulated shore-line rescues, water rescues in dangerous air space and long-distance ship rescues, off the West Coast of Wales.

With a wingspan of 15m, the 1.2 ton, Hermes 900 is already deployed with more than a dozen advanced customers around the globe providing search, rescue and reconnaissance capabilities. The Company offers extended life-saving capabilities with its recently launched Hermes 900 Maritime Patrol configuration with inflated life-rafts for detection, identification and saving the lives of survivors at sea. It was revealed that this configuration was delivered to an undisclosed customer in South-East Asia.
