The Israel Ministry of Defense has placed a second order for a number Hermes 900 Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). The announcement by Elbit Systems did not specify the quantity of UAVs to be delivered under this contract but said the drones will be delivered over a period of three years. This order follows a first order for these drones, part of procurement order a $50 million, announced in May 2010. That order, placed six months after the aircraft’s maiden flight included the delivery of Hermes 450 and Hermes 900 over a period of three years. The current order is worth $90 million, and includes only Hermes 900 drones, and support systems and services, to be delivered over a period of eight years.
