Smartshooter announced on 6 October that it has been awarded a contract from Atlantic Diving Supply (ADS) to supply its lightest weapon-mounted fire control system, the SMASH 2000L, to the U.S. Army.
The systems will be deployed by the U.S. Army as part of its Counter Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-sUAS) defence.
SMASH 2000L is also under evaluation by the US Marine Corps Rapid Capabilities Office (RCO), with recent live fire tests conducted in early August.
Smartshooter will present the SMASH 2000L together with other SMASH fire control solutions at the AUSA Annual meeting and exposition in Washington DC.
Also known as SMASH 3000, Counter Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (light) is Smartshooter’s lightest handheld-operated fire control system.
Using AI, computer vision, and advanced algorithms, SMASH 2000L maximizes force lethality, operational effectiveness, and situational awareness throughout every engagement, in both day and night.
Operationally proven, SMASH 2000L ensures precise target elimination against ground and aerial targets, making it an ideal hard-kill solution against drones and sUAS.
Smartshooter’s rifle-mounted SMASH Fire Control system was initially selected by the Joint – small Counter UAS Program Office (JCO) in June 2020 as the only dismounted kinetic solution to defeat drones. The U.S. Army Integrated Fires Rapid Capabilities Office (IFRCO) now took the initiative from the JCO selection.
