AI-driven Weapons Management Toolset
Secubit is to continue to supply the Swedish armed forces, the company announced on 28 February, by delivering its WeaponLogic Ecosystem, an AI-driven set of tools using advanced algorithms that gathers and analyses comprehensive weapon usage data in real time. The new partnership is a continuation of a previously signed seven-year agreement to supply systems for the Swedish Defense Material Administration.
WeaponLogic, compatible with a range of weapon systems already in Swedish service, facilitates data-driven maintenance and smart weapon inventory management, based on actual usage data gathered by constantly reviewing each weapon, providing tactical optimisation of over 99% shot accuracy. The agreement was facilitated in partnership with Promoteq, a leading Swedish provider of safety and medical equipment to government and law enforcement, including the Swedish armed forces and national police.
“The WeaponLogic Ecosystem will enable the Swedish Armed Forces to revolutionise [their] weapons arsenal maintenance procedures with a far more cost-effective, usage-based system,” observed Secubit CEO, Itay Weiss. “The continuation of this agreement highlights the need for sophisticated weapons maintenance systems based on preventive measures. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Swedish armed forces to ensure their weapons arsenal is in optimal condition and at a lower cost.”
The WeaponLogic Ecosystem gathers and analyses comprehensive weapon usage data to immediately show the weapon’s state and how much ammunition it has consumed. The system’s Smart Counter uses an advanced AI-driven algorithm to learn each specific weapon’s characteristics and provides analysis for tactical optimisation. Light-weight and simple to operate, the Smart Counter has an information storage capacity of up to one million rounds, rapid data presentation and a rechargeable battery that can be used for up to 10 years. The Smart Counter provides the weapon operator with vital information, such as magazine status, muzzle velocity and barrel temperature. It also offers a detailed data breakdown, with crucial alerts in real time.
Information collected by the Smart Counter is transferred via RFID technology to the Reader, which provides data on the weapon’s status in three seconds. Both the Reader and the Dashboard application provide usage data and analytics, representing the weapon’s operational status, with inventory management features. This information helps enable preventative and precise maintenance while maximising armory efficiency, alerting the armorer to those weapons which require service and the weapons’ supply status. The collected data is sorted and displayed in an easy to use interface with customisable features.
This fully MIL-STD 810G system includes a 5″ outdoor viewable HD screen, a USB 3.0 PC interface, and a rechargeable 4300 mAh Li-lon battery with an operating life of up to ten years. The Dashboard application is integration-ready and compatible with Windows 7 and higher.
The contract includes the provision of shot counters integrated into the grips of a variety of weapons, as well as advanced readers and software installed on laptops to enable weapon maintenance systems. The agreement also contains options to equip the Swedish armed forces’ existing weapon arsenal with Smart Counters and standalone Smart Counters as Government Furnished Equipment for new weapon system procurements made over the contract’s seven years.
