The Hermes 450 is a single engine system with advanced composite structure and optimized aerodynamics. Advanced avionics enable autonomous flight and precise GPS navigation. Fully redundant systems significantly increase reliability. Target detection and recognition are performed by gimbaled, electro-optical, state of the art payloads. The UAV is equipped with sophisticated communication systems transferring imagery in real time to ground control stations.
The Hermes 450 is the latest generation and most advanced UAV deployed with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Already operational for some time, the 450s have successfully completed acceptance tests and established the highest standards of reliability, availability and maintainability in their class.
The success of the Hermes 450, in anti-terror missions among others, has led to follow-on orders from the Israeli Ministry of Defense.
The Hermes 450 UAV meets intelligence requirements for ground forces, supplying real time battlefield data around the clock. It also assists in locating enemy targets and adjust artillery fire.

Hermes 450 ‘officially' in service
Speculation by the press and ‘smoke screens' put up by the Israeli Air Force (IAF) can be confirmed and cleared respectively, the GPS-guided Hermes 450 tactical long-endurance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is in service with the IAF' s 200 Sqn - dedicated to UAVs - based 20 miles south of Tel Aviv. 
Produced by Elbit/Silver Arrow of Israel, Hermes 450 joins the Searcher 2 , manufactured by IAI/MALAT, at the squadron in operational duty. 
Although Hermes 450 has a 20-hour endurance and a ceiling of 18,000 ft, there is, according to Israeli Defence Force sources, still a necessity in future operations for UAVs which surpass both these specifications. Baring this in mind, both companies are also continuing to development medium altitude long endurance (MALE) UAVs. In an attempt to meet this future requirement, Elbit/Silver Arrow is working on its twin-engined Hermes 1500 and IAI/MALAT, the Heron 1.
