Thales has undertaken the integration of a remotely operated turret and surveillance system for the Kuwait Ministry of Interior’s armoured patrol vehicles.

All vehicles will be ready for operations by the end of 2017. The advanced turret is to be integrated onto eight existing 4x4 vehicles which will be used for maintaining internal security and surveillance missions. The vehicles will be operated by the Kuwaiti Security Shield department.

It includes a high definition day and night thermal commander’s sight, main gunner thermal camera, local situation awareness sensors and acoustic shot detection system. All of this system is designed and manufactured in the UK.

All these capabilities are fully integrated into a central mission system and designed to meet a specific customer specific mission requirement.

The system is also equipped with high quality recording capability which allows all mission aspects to be stored to assist in post analysis, training and provide mission accountability.
