NATO evaluates SMASH as possible anti-drone terrorism solution
The SMASH Counter-small Unmanned Aircraft System (C-sUAS) fire control solution from Smart Shooter is under consideration by NATO in its Defense Against Terrorism Program of Work (DAT PoW) exercise.
‘Smart Shooter's SMASH Fire Control Solution will be tested and evaluated on the engagement part of the UAV kill chain,’ the company announced on 18 August.
The SMASH family uses targeting data from a range of EO, RF and radar sensors. Smart Shooter claims it is a cost-effective solution that can be integrated onto any type of assault rifle, as well as combined with other C-UAS systems, to provide an effective multi-layer defense solution suitable for the modern battlefield.
Proprietary target acquisition and tracking algorithms are integrated with sophisticated image-processing software into a rugged hardware solution that enables automatic detection, tracking, and effective engagement of UAVs.
