After successfully experiencing the system, the Dutch military recently ordered the Smart Shooter SMASH AD solution for operational use.
Press Release, Yagur, 21 February 2022: SMART SHOOTER, a world-class designer, developer, and manufacturer of innovative fire control systems that significantly increase the accuracy and lethality of small arms, has received an order from the Dutch military and will provide them with its SMASH AD solution for operational use. The Dutch military has tested the system during the recent year, and decided to purchase it and use the systems immediately, mainly for C-UAS purposes.
SMASH is a combat-proven Fire Control solution for small arms that ensures each round finds its target. Bringing precision-missile targeting algorithms and advanced electro-optical processing capabilities into standard assault rifles, Smart Shooter’s SMASH Fire Control Systems works automatically but not autonomously, and allows the operator to quickly and effectively neutralise their target. It is a cost-effective solution that can be integrated into any type of assault rifle and combined with other C-UAS systems to provide an effective multi-layer defence solution suitable for the modern battlefield.
Specifically designed to provide kinetic elimination of small, low-flying drones, SMASH AD incorporates a laser rangefinder and enables precision targeting of drones around the clock, with clear day and night vision capabilities. Capable of receiving and displaying target information from an external sensor or detection system, SMASH AD promises precise, swift, safe and simple hard-kill elimination of drones up to 250 m (Day Mode).
Smart Shooter’s local representative in Holland, Technische Bureau H.A. Muller (TBM BV), will take care of the logistics and direct support.
Michal Mor, SMART SHOOTER CEO: “We at Smart Shooter are proud to provide our leading SMASH solutions to another friendly force. We have developed these solutions in order to revolutionise the world of small arms, and I am confident that our SMASH technology will allow the Dutch military to better protect their soldiers, camps and strategic infrastructures against the growing threat of drones”.
Smart Shooter will present its SMASH family of fire control solutions, including handheld operated as well as remotely controlled systems, at the Enforce Tac exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany.
