EXPAL's EIMOS system, which has been in service since 2015, is the natural evolution of the conventional 81/60 mm mortar system. This mobility solution for mortar units integrates a 81 mm mortar (interchangeable with 60 mm) on a high mobility 4x4 vehicle, improving accuracy and reliability. This solution integrates also EXPAL’s TECHFIRE fire support information system, acting as a ballistic calculator, automatic aiming and firing system, as well as command and control system. All these functionalities let units quickly share targets, fire orders, impact adjustments among others. SHEPHERD-MIL, a mini UAV, completes EIMOS solution acting as an unmanned forward observer for the onboard mortar system and fully integrated into TECHFIRE.
A very quick time of deployment (less than 20 seconds), automatic aiming and firing with high accuracy, high effective hydro-pneumatic recoil absorption, fast fire rate, “shoot & scoot” capability and share of vital battlefield information, reflects the pursuing of troops survivality for different kind of missions.
The EIMOS system is part of EXPAL's one-stop shop solution, covering all lifecycle needs in indirect fire support missions in infantry operations, from ammunition and systems design and production to ammunition demilitarization.
