The Army-2020 Forum, which opened yesterday at the Patriot exhibition grounds, features a variety of new solutions including the HERMES missile system. Developed by the Tula-based Shipunov KBP Instrument Design Bureau (part of the High Precision Systems Holding), the system has an over-the-horizon range of up to 100km alongside an autonomous fire-and-forget guidance.
“The system features the salvo launch mode at several (up to six) scattered targets and automated synchronisation of laser guidance for striking targets with a high-precision projectile with deviation not exceeding 0.5 meters,” the company spokesman said.
The system includes a number of vehicles ranging from a command one, which employs computers, panels and controls plus communication and data transmitting equipment alongside several combat vehicles equipped with mobile launchers. Additionally, a transport-loading vehicle has an on-board stock of missiles, a crane and a reloading mechanism in addition to a reconnaissance device with a UAV to provide target detection and laser illumination round-the-clock in all weather conditions.
Mission Next-Level Weapon Stabilisation – Tailor-Made Meets ModularIn the development and production of military vehicles, time is not only money, but also relative. Years pass from the idea to the first deployment. In turn, vehicles are in service for decades before they need repairs and upgrades.
