SMART SHOOTER, a designer, developer, and manufacturer of innovative fire control systems that significantly increase the accuracy and lethality of small arms, announces that it has successfully completed another step in testing the SMASH Hopper in different configurations. SMASH Hopper, SMART SHOOTER's Light Remote-Controlled Weapon Station (LRCWS), was mounted on Plasan Re’em’s Armoured Toyota Hilux and successfully shot and hit several moving ground and air targets from more than 300 metres. Mounting on vehicles Weighing approximately 15 Kg, SMASH Hopper is a modular and rapidly deployable LRCWS that provides “One Shot – One Hit” capability while controlled by an operator from a safe distance or from inside a protected vehicle. SMASH Hopper is ideal for deployment on various lightweight manned and unmanned vehicles & platforms, with a wide range of applications. Offering day and night capability with automatic scanning and target detection, SMASH Hopper is ideal for multiple mission scenarios including force protection, border security, anti-drone, remote ambush, as well as low profile operations at complex urban environments. Increased accuracy Michal Mor, Smart Shooter CEO: "We were happy to collaborate with Plasan Re’em for the development of capabilities in this market segment, and appreciate the professional work they did in the integration and installation of the SMASH Hopper on their modified armoured 4x4 vehicle. This is another step in a series of trials for different configurations and applications of the SMASH Hopper, and once again, we were thrilled to see how every bullet finds its target.” Yaakov Ben-Ari, Plasan Re’em CEO: "Integrating SMART SHOOTER's SMASH Hopper lightweight RCWS that provides “One Shot – One Hit” capability on Plasan Re’em modified armoured 4X4 vehicle creates a tiebreaker solution that dramatically increases accuracy, lethality, and survivability of small arms. Ideal for special forces, law enforcement units, and border security, this integrated solution brings essential added value to its users, especially in scenarios where weight, time, and precision play an indispensable role."
SMART SHOOTER, a designer, developer, and manufacturer of innovative fire control systems that significantly increase the accuracy and lethality of small arms, is honoured to announce that the company has been selected by the U.S. Army and endorsed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) as one of a handful of approved Counter-small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-sUAS) solution providers. The designation of SMART SHOOTER as one of only three DoD-approved dismounted/ handheld systems by the Army – the DoD’s Executive Agent for the C-UAS mission area – follows an extended Army-led assessment of more than three dozen competing C-UAS systems. Multi-layer defence solution The Army notes that this assessment identified current systems for future investment based on criteria such as effectiveness, usability, sustainment, and integration. SMART SHOOTER's SMASH family of Fire Control solutions – capable of leveraging targeting data from a wide range of EO, RF and radar sensors – can be integrated onto any assault rifle, as well as combined with other C-UAS systems, to provide an effective multi-layer defence solution suitable for the modern battlefield. SMASH enables the creation of a micro-tactical network between deployed SMASH units Bringing precision-missile targeting algorithms and advanced electro-optical processing capabilities into standard infantry, SMASH enables the creation of a micro-tactical network between deployed SMASH units, allowing the entire platoon to be smart, precise, and connected. With a unique ‘One Shot – One Hit’ capability, SMART SHOOTER's Fire Control technology allows the operator to quickly and effectively neutralise any ground or airborne, manned or unmanned threat through automatic detection, tracking, and effective engagement. Gathering critical tactical intelligence Michal Mor, SMART SHOOTER CEO noted: "In recent years, drones and UAS have become a persistent threat over the battlefield, enabling opposing forces to gather critical tactical intelligence and even make direct attacks. The SMASH family of Fire Control Solutions offers precise, swift, and simple hard-kill elimination of this threat. We are thrilled that the DoD has down-selected and designated SMART SHOOTER's exclusive technology for C-UAS application across the U.S.” “Armed Forces, and see it as validation of the operational value that our solutions provide. The selection is a result of SMART SHOOTER's ongoing work with the Countering Terrorism Tactical Support Office (CTTSO), during which our technology was integrated with radar solutions to provide the warfighter with an unrivalled detection and hit system."
