Ultralight Remote Weapon Station with Anti-Drone Capabilities
In the Israel Pavilion, in hall 6, on stand #E571 at Eurosatory 2018 next week, General Robotics, a company specialising in developing, manufacturing and marketing advanced robotic systems for defence and homeland security, will showcase the ultralight PITBULL remote weapon station with anti-drone capabilities. It provides an ideal solution for detecting and tracking all types of drones during flight, enabling their neutralization and downing.
According to Shahar Gal, CEO, the company is, “pleased to present PITBULL AD (Anti-Drone) Ultralight Remote Weapon Station at Eurosatory, in response to the growing global threat posed by drones. PITBULL can intercept drones, even while in flight, thereby assisting with border protection and HLS. Interest in these solutions has already been expressed by various organizations around the world.”
In addition to PITBULL, the company also presents the DOGO Anti-Terror Robot at the exhibition. Weighing only 10kg, DOGO is being used by Special Forces, SWAT teams, and infantry around the world. Standard pistols can be quickly attached to DOGO and easily operated via Point and Shoot technology. DOGO can also integrate with non-lethal modules. The robot includes eight video cameras that provide 360° live video and boresight views and can communicate in hostage situations. The DOGO is being sent into Fatal Funnels to provide Situational Awareness and remote engagement capabilities to increase the survivability of the fighting forces.
