Raytheon Company will release its BattleGuard modular weapon system, at the two-day US Army 2012 Maneuver Conference starting Tuesday.
The company announced today that the Electro-Optical Infrared and visible sensor with a weapon station, will allow its users to accurately identify targets from twice as far away as competing technologies.
Glynn Raymer, vice president of Combat and Sensing Systems in Raytheon’s Network Centric Systems business, said the plug-and-play BattleGuard is easy and fast to configure, install and uninstall.
Raymer added that the system, designed for tracked and wheeled combat vehicles, can provide “additional and immediate vehicle and squad protection.”
BattleGuard provides 360 degrees of unobstructed coverage and high-performance 2nd or 3rd generation forward looking infrared.
Aside form machine and chain guns, BattleGuard also supports hard and soft launch missiles.
