Smart Shooter unveils SMASH HOPPER

22nd July 2020 - 15:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Smart Shooter has launched a new compact and lightweight (15kg) remote-controlled weapon station called SMASH HOPPER.

Integrated with an existing C2 system, the new system has a day and night capability with automatic scanning and target detection. It provides operators with the ability to hand-off or receive targets across existing communications networks.

SMASH HOPPER includes a safe trigger mechanism, a mounting solution and a ruggedised remote control unit. It ‘provides a pan–and–tilt capability for the weapon system and can be controlled via cable or wireless connectivity’, Smart Shooter added in a 21 July announcement.

The company believes SMASH HOPPER is suitable for a range of missions such as force protection, border security, C-UAS, remote ambush, and offensive action operations.

The system can be mounted on a standalone deployable tripod, a stationary fixed mast or a lightweight vehicle.
