General Dynamics presents AJAX new armoured reconnaissance vehicle ISTAR for British Army
The new AJAX reconnaissance armoured fighting vehicle will be the medium-weight core of the British Army's deployable Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) capability. It will enable the soldier to be at the point of collection of accurate all-weather commander information within a network-enabled, fully-digitised platform.

The platform provides commanders with a survivable and capable Ground Mounted Manned Reconnaissance capability, which gives them the flexibility to perform a range of roles across the spectrum of conflict.

The primary role of AJAX is to provide accurate and timely information to support decision-making at all levels. It integrates a range of leading-edge technologies to provide an optimised survivable, lethal and agile ISTAR platform.

The panoramic Primary Sight provides advanced all-weather imaging technology capability. which allows the AJAX platform to find, engage and target enemy combatants at far greater ranges than current UK Ministry of Defence legacy platforms.

A sophisticated, packaged Electronic Architecture makes it the first fully-digitised land platform that is able to seamlessly integrate both current and future open ISTAR and communication products. Enhanced and modular survivability technologies ensures it will survive both current and future threats. Lethality is provided by the 40mm cannon integrated into a revolutionary, user-defined, fightable turret. Where the operation dictates, a fully-stabilised Remote Weapon System can replace the Primary Sight.
