The contract includes Universal Ground Control Stations (UGCS) and a variety of payloads and capabilities including: the Electro-Optics Elop Division's advanced payloads systems, the Elisra Division's intelligence COMINT systems, SAR/MPR multi mode radar and additional sensors.

Hermes 450® is a unique Elbit Systems development and has been the back bone of the IDF's operational UAS activity. The Hermes® 450 UAS have been used extensively in defense forces worldwide, including in active war zones, and have accumulated over 300,000 operational flight hours. The Hermes® 900 UAS builds on the vast operational experience accumulated by the Hermes® 450.

The system’s unique structure enables it to carry a variety of payloads in various shapes and sizes for quick "conversion" between payload configurations.

Aharonson added: "Hermes® 900 is well positioned as a world-leading UAS, suitable for a wide variety of missions, from intelligence gathering, to perimeter and security missions. The unique capability of joint operation with the Hermes® 450 offers seamless integration for existing users, further enhancing operational flexibility and cost effectiveness and eliminating the need for additional infrastructure or special training programs".
