Handheld operated or remotely controlled, the SMASH family of fire control systems excels in combat as well as in HLS due to its unique ability to counter drones and enhance operational effectiveness against ground, aerial, and maritime targets. The SMASH systems are currently in operational use by the IDF as part of the Swords of Iron War in Israel.

SMARTSHOOTER, an acclaimed innovator in fire control systems that significantly increase hit probability against ground and aerial targets, will present its combat-proven SMASH fire control systems at the MILIPOL exhibition in Paris.

SMASH is a cutting-edge Weapon Fire Control System (FCS) equipped with onboard computing capabilities for intricate targeting solutions. Once the user identifies the target independently or through the detection system guidance, SMASH takes over, locking on the target and tracking its movements to synchronize the shot release for swift and precise hits.

The SMASH Family of fire control systems can be operated either by hand or controlled from a secure distance, employing Artificial Intelligence, computer vision, and advanced algorithms to eliminate threats rapidly and with minimal risk to the operator.

Furthermore, these remarkable systems facilitate various software applications that improve performance in complicated law enforcement scenes, such as less-lethal applications.

The SMASH fire control systems are currently operational in various defense, HLS, and border security forces around the world, spanning Israel, England, Europe, the USA, India, and others. Beyond increasing hit accuracy against ground and aerial targets, including drones, SMASH substantially reduces operating costs, training hours, and ammunition consumption, effectively elevating the skills of all shooters to expert level.

Michal Mor, SMARTSHOOTER CEO, stated: “SMARTSHOOTER’s fire control solutions are designed to provide law enforcement officers with a critical tactical advantage in almost every operational scenario. Our goal is to maximize operational effectiveness throughout every engagement while prioritizing the safety of our forces and ensuring that innocent civilians remain unharmed.” During Milipol, SMARTSHOOTER will present both handheld operated and remotely controlled systems, including the SMASH 3000 and the SMASH Hopper light remotely controlled weapon system.
