Aselsan introduces SARP Next Gen RWS at DSEI 2023

Continuing its development of advanced remote weapon stations (RWS), Aselsan is highlighting its Stabilised Advanced Remote Weapon Platform (SARP) family at DSEI 2023 in London this week, introducing the SARP Next Generation (SARP Next Gen) model.

Maintaining the high hit probability, track-on-the-move performance and shoot-on-the-move capability that have been hallmarks of the SARP family to date, the system combines high-precision reconnaissance capabilities with the firepower to serve tactical needs. Its compact design suits it to integration onto tactical vehicles or fixed surveillance posts and towers. Mounting 12.7mm or 7.62mm machineguns or a 40mm automatic grenade launcher as main armament, SARP Next Gen can also mount a 7.62mm coaxial machinegun. With extensive surveillance and remote control capabilities, SARP Next Gen enhances gunner situational awareness.

Innovative hardware and advanced engineering enable a variety of enhanced capabilities, among them the concept of a hybrid ammunition box which enables vehicles to carry up to 1,250 additional rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, for example, compared to traditional reload-under-armour weapon systems.

Aselsan’s electro-optical expertise and  advanced engineering expertise means it would not take much modification, Unmanned Airspace suggests, for SARP Next Gen to be modified to make a counter-UAS application feasible in the not too distant future.
