AWHero, a 200 kg Rotary Wing Unmanned Air System

AWHERO is a new-generation, short-range, rotary-wing unmanned aerial vehicle (RUAV) being developed by Leonardo for both military and civilian applications.

Another UAV has entered the market. (more here) This system is likely to serve on the numerous French OPVs being built that have aviation facilities designed to support UAVs rather than helicopters like the POM, though the indication was that their UAV would be in the 700 KG class. 

It appears to be very direct competition for the very successful Schiebel Camcopter S-100, being very close in specifications.
