Eurosatory: Duke launches helicopter Remote Weapon Station

16th June 2014 - 06:00 GMT | by Jonathan Tringham in Paris


A first-of-its-kind, fully-robotic remote weapon station (RWS) for helicopters is set to be unveiled at Eurosatory in Paris.

Duke Airborne Systems has developed a compact RWS for use on UH-60/S-70 type helicopters, and claims the system is the only one of its kind to implement ‘land-proven technology on an airborne platform’ to allow transport and CASEVAC missions to be completed without attack helicopter escorts. 

As the system effectively allows one aircraft to be deployed in place of two, Duke is hoping the RWS will appeal to cash-strapped military operators keen to save money on resources.
