Electro Optic Systems US defence division has demonstrated the precision and lethality of its Remote Weapon Stations (RWS) to US military observers.
EOS Defense Systems USA took part in a live fire and static display at the Crew Served Weapons (CSW) Industry Range Day event on Red Cloud Range, Fort Benning, Georgia (Pictured).
EOS displayed two medium-gimbal R400S RWS on HMMWVs, one firing the Northrop Grumman percussion-primed M230LF, 30x113mm cannon and the other the Dillon Aero M134D, 7.62mm Gatling Gun.
EOS also displayed the light-gimbal R150S RWS, mounted on the Polaris DAGOR, firing the M2, .50 caliber heavy machine gun and capable of supporting the Javelin anti-tank guided missile (ATGM).
The R400S / M230LF combination was the only 30mm system demonstrated to achieve first round hits on every target out to the maximum distance available on the range.
CEO of EOS DS USA Retired Brigadier General Phil Coker said, “This inaugural event that gave us an opportunity to showcase the EOS family of Remote Weapons Stations.”
EOS manufactures the RWS in Australia and the US, and is planning to begin manufacture in Europe.
EOS Defense Systems USA is headquartered in its 80,000 ft2 manufacturing facility in Huntsville, Alabama.
