U.S. Army continues to enhance their Common Remotely Operated Weapon Stations (CROWS). A 5 year frame contract has been awarded to American Rheinmetall Systems. Within this contract precision subsystems including high-definition image stabilized EO sensors (day cameras), weapon mounts and other critical assemblies can be delivered to support the Army’s CROWS Program.
CROWS systems allow soldiers to remotely engage targets with precision fire while mobile or stationary, in day or night conditions with its day camera, thermal camera and laser rangefinder. Kongsberg has supplied more than 23,000 CROWS systems to 26 nations worldwide over the course of 17 years. American Rheinmetall Systems has delivered supporting subsystems since 2008 while also completing thousands of repairs, overhauls and upgrades to fielded systems in that time.
“American Rheinmetall Systems is proud of our long-standing partnership with Kongsberg on the CROWS program,” says Brad Hittle, President and CEO, American Rheinmetall Systems. “We look forward to continuing our best-in-class delivery of this critical technology to our warfighters.”
