Duke Airborne Systems Launches RWS For Helicopters

Fully-Robotic Device Enables Mission Completion Without Attack Helicopter Escort

Duke Airborne Systems will introduce the first-of-its-kind fully-robotic Remote Weapon Station (RWS) for helicopters at Eurosatory, taking place in Paris, June 16-20.

This small-footprint, fully-robotic RWS is the only system of its kind to successfully implement land-proven technology on an airborne platform. Using this system, missions can be completed without attack helicopter escorts.

The system requires no dedicated operator - and enables utility helicopters to accomplish their missions independently - thus saving on resources.  The system has a 360° firing capability, and a sophisticated built-in vision system. It occupies only a third of the cargo space near the door while providing a multitude of effective and critical features.

Duke’s RWS meets balance requirements and weight limitations, including a set of weights that enables instant adjustments to balance the helicopter. Enabling flexible installation, the system is easily deployed, efficient and convenient to operate, and requires no adjustments or special training. In an emergency, the capsule and tracks can be easily jettisoned by the pilot, who has full control over the cargo hooks. With its "delta-robot" motion platform, the system is designed for extreme stability while in flight, handling most interference while maintaining target-locking.

"The development of the system was based on thorough and in-depth research as well as extensive know-how and experience in the area of weapon systems and their integration on aircraft," said Sagiv Aharon, Founder and CEO. "Now that we have accomplished a major milestone in the development of the technology, the next step will be to create partnerships with leading companies in order to achieve complete market readiness. The RWS will be on display at the exhibition, and we invite everyone to visit and learn more about it."
