Nasdaq-listed Elbit Systems Ltd.’s new military drone can fly in civilian airspace alongside manned aircrafts, the company announced Thursday. Called the Hermes 900 StarLiner, the medium altitude unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is compliant with NATO’s UAV regulations and has concluded year-long flight trials over Israel’s Masada National Park, located near the Dead Sea, the company said in a statement.

Elbit is currently assembling a series of Hermes 900 StarLiner drones scheduled to be delivered to the Swiss Armed Forces in 2019. Founded in 1966 and headquartered in the port city of Haifa in northern Israel, Elbit and its subsidiaries operate in several military domains, including communications, aerospace, land and naval systems, surveillance, and reconnaissance.
