Rafael is unveiling its newly enhanced SAMSON 30mm Integrated Remote Weapons Station (RWS) for Light Vehicles. With a combination of advanced, reliable, and effective solutions the SAMSON 30mm Integrated RWS is designed to address the threats of the modern battlefield. 

The SAMSON is equipped with hostile fire detection capabilities and the ability to rapidly and effectively return fire via a fast, accurate slew-to-cue mechanism. It also includes a unified user interface for all subsystems, an inherent hatch for close situational awareness, and under-armor ammunition loading that increases lethality. These capabilities enable the SAMSON to turn a light vehicle into a lethal powerhouse on par with a main battle tank.

A key element of SAMSON’s lethality suit is its integration of the SPIKE LR 1 & 2 multi-purpose guided missiles, and its full collaboration TROPHY Active Protection System (APS), two of Rafael’s most groundbreaking solutions.  These allow the RWS to provide unparalleled maneuverability, lethality, and survivability, according to the company’s announcement.
