Escribano Mechanical & Engineering (EM&E) integrates its RWS Guardian in the new armoured vehicles for the Bulgarian Armed Forces.
Press Release, Madrid, 12 January 2022: The Spanish leading defence and engineering company Escribano Mechanical & Engineering has integrated successfully the first four GUARDIAN Remote Weapon Systems (RWS) for the Bulgarian MoD.
These RWS has been integrated in the 4×4 Armoured Vehicles produced by SAMEL-90 for the Bulgarian Special Operations Forces. In the coming months another eight GUARDIAN RWS are being expected to be incorporated.
Especially designed to be integrated on a vast range of platforms and vehicles, the GUARDIAN system provides excellent capabilities for short and mid-range defence. At the same time, it has an optimal accuracy when firing due to a newly designed stabilised system in two axes. This system is linked to the latest technology on electro-optical systems from EM&E, which allows detection, recognition, and identification of targets at a higher range than its competitors.
Highly customisable because of its modular architecture, this RWS is an excellent solution against asymmetric threats, and it can operate in extreme conditions. This design makes maintenance easier and increases its reliability.
Speaking on the occasion, Ángel Escribano, CEO, said: This contract represents a great milestone for our company showing that the Spanish Defence Industry is a strong and safe partner.
ESCRIBANO M&E manufactures and designs its products with a clear commitment to offering the most innovative and creative solutions for the defence sector consolidating its international presence.
