The Dutch Army has recently completed a live-fire counter-drone trial using Smart Shooter’s SMASH Fire Control System, according to UAS Weekly. Soldiers from all branches of the Dutch army, including the Air Force, Special Forces, and Marines, attended the trial, which was done in close co-operation with Smart Shooter Dutch Partner, TBM. The trial took place at the site of the knowledge centre for weapons and ammunition in ‘t Harde. Most of the soldiers were introduced to the system for the first time the morning of the trial, and used it on a Colt 5,56 assault rifle to shoot down different kinds of drones from up to 150 meters.
The test was successful, and the system proved to be very effective as all targets were shot down and eliminated.
SMASH is a combat-proven Fire Control solution for small arms that ensures each round finds its target. With a “One Shot – One Hit” capability, SMASH is designed to allow the operator to quickly and effectively neutralise any ground or airborne target, manned or unmanned. It can be integrated onto any type of assault rifle and combined with other C-UAS systems, to provide an effective multi-layer defense solution suitable for the modern battlefield.
