The US Army has selected the SMASH Counter-small Unmanned Aircraft System (C-sUAS) solution from Smart Shooter after it was endorsed by the US DoD.

The system is one of three dismounted/handheld systems approved by the DoD. It has undergone an extended Army-led assessment which identified current systems for future investment based on effectiveness, usability, sustainment and integration.

Michal More, CEO of Smart Shooter, said: ‘In recent years, drones and UAS have become a persistent threat over the battlefield, enabling opposing forces to gather critical tactical intelligence and even make direct attacks.’

Mor continued: ‘The SMASH family of fire control solutions offers precise, swift and simple hard-kill elimination of this threat. We are thrilled that the DoD has down-selected and designated Smart Shooter’s exclusive technology.’

The SMASH family uses targeting data from a range of EO, RF and radar sensors which can be integrated on any assault rifle.
