The Leonardo HITROLE® Light is a state of the art lightweight Common Remote Operated Weapon Station (CROWS) that can be armed with 7,62mm or 12,7mm Machine Guns (MG) or a 40mm Automatic Grenade Launcher (AGL) to perform multi-role tasks like surveillance, patrolling in urban environment, border security, counter-sniper and asymmetric missions.

The weapons are primarily stabilized on two axis, and a universal ammunition box for the different calibers is fitted on the mount.

The HITROLE® Light Fire Control System (FCS) consists of a modular sighting system including a Day TV camera, an Infra Red (IR) camera for night vision and an eye safe Laser Range Finder (LRF).

The HITROLE® Light FCS architecture is open and provides growth potential for system upgrade.

Both sighting system and firing are computer assisted and operated from a protected position inside the vehicle through a multi function display and joystick. The Gunner is assisted by a Fire Control Computer (FCC) with ballistic and cinematic computation as well as an auto-tracker. The digital servo system is based on Digital Signal Processing technology.

The HITROLE® Light is designed to minimize power consumption in order to grant a very long mission period and it is EMC compliant to MIL-STD-461D. In an emergency HITROLE* Light can be manually operated.
