ASPIS is a very light Remote Weapon Station, suitable for land platforms such as armoured vehicles. It can support and operate a 7.62 mm M240 automatic machine gun.

ASPIS includes advanced features present in the Guardian and Sentinel remote weapon stations, including two-axis stabilisation, a target tracking system and automatic tracking. Its electro-optical sensor has an uncooled thermal camera, a high-sensitivity visible camera and a laser range finder.

This system offers versatility for day and night operations and includes an advanced fire control system with high firing accuracy for long and short distances.

Collaboration with FERRI:

Thanks to its advanced features, the ASPIS RWS can be used on both unmanned land and naval surface platforms (USV). This versatility allows its integration into the Victoria unmanned vessel, developed by the Spanish company FERRI.

This new collaboration agreement between the two companies represents an ideal solution to enhance the security in maritime missions since it allows the detection of standardised NATO targets over 13 km away.

This solution represents an important technological advance that will improve the protection of coasts and borders against several types of threats.
