The SMASH HOPPER is a light-weight Remote Controlled Weapon Station (RCWS) using SMASH Fire Control technology. SMASH HOPPER provides operators the remote capability to engage ground targets and small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
The combination of lightweight and compact size of the SMASH HOPPER makes the system perfectly suited for complex urban areas, borders, and sensitive infrastructure and situations where a low signature is required. The HOPPER can be mounted in several configurations, including a tripod, fixed mast, surface vessel, and vehicles. The SMASH Fire Control tracking and locking capability enables the system to maintain its lock while maneuvering on land or sea.
The SMASH HOPPER can also be integrated into an existing Command-and-Control (C2) system, providing operators with the ability to hand-off or receive targets across existing communications networks.
