WeaponLogic has developed a new system for the management of large calibre weapon system fleets called WeaponLogic Eco System, the company announced on 11 November.

The system uses artificial intelligence to deliver comprehensive usage data regarding weapon operational status for precision preemptive maintenance of large calibre firearms including mortars, artillery and tank cannons.

The system’s algorithm collects and records comprehensive weapon firing data in real time and delivers updated status information regarding the current state of the weapon and the potential for future malfunctions, based on the degree of wear and tear exerted on the weapon during usage. This data enables the creation of a relevant, customised maintenance plan for each specific device.

The system integrates the WeaponLogic Smart Sensor chip into the weapon that records and gathers information including the amount and type of ammunition used, rate of fire, single or automatic shots, dry fires and drops, time signature and type of weapon. The sensor weighs 20 grams and has over a million-shot memory.

Reader and dashboard applications provide a complete weapon and operator profile. The applications offer the ability to manage the maintenance of the weapons, including but not limited to: round counts, assigned users, service history, service recommendations, armourer maintenance history and battery status.
