  • UVision Air has been contracted to supply its Hero-120 tactical aerial loitering weapon system for the US Marine Corps’ (USMC’s) Organic Precision Fires-Mounted (OPF-M) system requirement.
  • Signed in-mid June with Mistral Inc., UVision’s business development partner in the United States, the contract follows the issue of a Request for Information (RFI) by Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) in January 2019 for an OPF-M system that is “capable of attacking targets at ranges exceeding the ranges of weapons system currently in an organic infantry battalion [7 km] and up to 100 km”.
  • The OPF-M contract provides for a multiyear program in which UVision will supply an undisclosed quantity of Hero-120 OPF-M loitering munition systems to the USMC. UVision will also supply its multicanister launcher (currently configured in a 8-cell architecture, but designed as a modular solution that can be adapted to four- or six-cell configuration per customer requirement) and integrate it onto the USMC 8×8 Light Armored Vehicle-Mortar (LAV-M), 4×4 Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), and Long-Range Unmanned Surface Vessel (LRUSV).
