EOS demonstrates integrated C-UAS/anti-armour remote weapon station to US Army

EOS Defense Systems USA (EOS) reports it has participated in the US Army’s Project Convergence Capstone 4 (PC-C4) in March at the Army’s National Training Center in Fort Irwin, California, demonstrating the capabilities of an R600 Remote Weapon Station equipped with a Northrop Grumman M230LF cannon, coaxial machine gun, and four Javelin missiles on an Army Small Multipurpose Equipment Transport (S-MET) robotic infantry support vehicle.

According to the company, EOS shot down pairs of Class 1 UAVs “at ranges of more than 300m and engaged multiple ground targets with 30mm cannon from this robotic platform.” These capabilities paired with four anti-armour missiles “represents a significant increase in firepower available to light forces on a platform that is currently being fielded. The R600 provides both light- and medium-calibre firepower and the added lethality of multiple anti-tank or anti-air missiles, offering a major differentiating capability and addressing a critical need of US and allied forces.”

“The C-UAS exercise was conducted against Boresight Aerial Targets’ low-cost UAVs which provided challenging and realistic target sets. The Javelin missile capability is being supported by the Javelin Joint Venture team.

“The event was a critical venue for Army senior leaders to assess new technologies needed to ensure the Army’s success in future conflicts as well as inform acquisition and force structure decisions. As human-machine integration continues to be a key strategic priority, the demonstration was an important opportunity to evaluate unmanned and remote solutions which provide essential protections to the warfighter.”
