SMARTSHOOTER to present the SMASH technology, recently selected for purchase by the British Army

SMARTSHOOTER, a world-class designer, developer, and manufacturer of innovative fire control systems that significantly increase small arms’ accuracy, lethality, and situational awareness while reducing training costs, will present its SMASH family of fire control systems, including Handheld operated, remotely controlled, and UGV mounted systems, at the DSEI exhibition in London. The UK Ministry of Defense recently awarded SMARTSHOOTER through Viking Arms Ltd. a multi-year contract for the Procurement and Support of Counter-small Unmanned Aircraft System Smart Weapon Sight (CsUAS-SWS) via a Framework Agreement worth up to £20,000,000.

Providing dismounted soldiers with the ability to achieve a high probability of hit against micro and mini UAVs, SMARTSHOOTER’s SMASH technology enhances every mission’s effectiveness by increasing the Probability of Hit (PHit) against small UAS through ballistically calculated coincident shot release. Ideal for defense and CsUAS missions, the SMASH 3000 and SMASH X4 have clearly demonstrated that firers are able to successfully hit drone targets with a much higher PHit after only a short training.

Furthermore, SMASH technology provides unmatched precision to ground, maritime and Heli-Sniping targets during both day and night operations. The SMASH Fire Control Systems have completed rigorous trials and qualification processes of the highest standards and demonstrated firers nearly quadrupled their PHit Vs. in-service magnifying optical sight. SMASH family of fire control systems includes handheld operated, remotely controlled, and robotic systems, e.g., UGV, UAS, mounted systems that ensure precise hit capabilities, enhance forces’ situational awareness, and reduce costs by significantly lowering training burden in both range time and ammunition.

Michal Mor, SMARTSHOOTER CEO: “We are delighted to cooperate with Viking Arms Ltd. for this significant project. The SMASH precision fire control systems that revolutionize the dismounted combatants’ battlefield effectiveness are an ideal fit for the cUAS operational requirements of the British Army, providing a pin-point accurate kinetic interception capability that is not dependent on the user’s combat stress and, in fact, reduces their cognitive load.”

At the DSEI exhibition, SMARTSHOOTER will present rifle-mounted and remotely controlled solutions, including the SMASH 3000, SMASH Hopper Light Remotely Controlled Weapon System, and SMASH X4.
