SARP Advanced Remote Controlled Stabilized Weapon Station
SARP is an Advanced Remote Controlled Stabilized Weapon Station for small and medium caliber machine guns and automatic grenade launchers. The platform combines high-precision reconnaissance and engagement capabilities with effective firepower while keeping the operator under armor or in a safe area away from counter fire.
The compact design of the system proves SARP perfect match for integration onto tactical vehicles, fixed surveillance posts and towers. Stabilization, automatic target tracking and advanced ballistic computation features provide fire-on-the-move capability against stationary and moving targets.
SARP-DUAL is an extension of the existing Advanced Remote Controlled Stabilized Weapon Station SARP system. 7.62mm machine gun, 12.7mm machine gun or 40mm automatic grenade launcher can be integrated to it as the main gun, whereas 7.62mm machine gun is also integrated to it as a secondary gun. The system enables the user to switch between the main gun and secondary gun using the system control console from inside of the vehicle. Thanks to its two-axis stabilization, fire control computer, automatic ballistic calculations and enhanced electro-optic sensors including a thermal camera, day TV and laser range finder, SARP-DUAL provides automatic target tracking and shoot on the movement capabilities to its users. Through its extensive surveillance and remote control capabilities, SARP-DUAL enhances situational awareness of the gunner in his proximity while the vulnerability to attacks is decreased drastically. The compact design of the system proves SARP-DUAL a perfect match for integration onto tactical vehicles, fixed surveillance posts and turrets.
