A new weapon system can be applied in multiple mission areas including force protection, border security, anti-drone, remote ambush, and offensive action operations at complex environments.
The Smash Hopper – a portable Light Remote-Controlled Weapon Station (LRCWS) – provides a “One Shot – One Hit” capability while controlled by an operator from a safe distance.
Offering day and night capability with automatic scanning and target detection, the solution provides precise fire capability against ground, aerial, static, or moving targets.
The Smash Hopper system has been optimized to increase the survivability of tactical units through the provision of enhanced and clandestine surveillance, accuracy, and lethality.
The compact, lightweight, and rapidly deployable system launched by Smart Shooter extends the maximum effective range of the host weapon system to its ballistic limits.
The solution can be mounted utilizing a standalone deployable tripod, a stationary fixed mast or a lightweight vehicle.
Measuring approximately 15 Kg, the weapon system can be integrated into an existing Command-and-Control system (C2), providing operators with the ability to hand-off or receive targets across existing communications networks.
Designed as a modular and rapidly deployable solution, the system dramatically increases accuracy, lethality, and survivability of small arms, according to thebigredguide.com.
