Kongsberg to Display Remote Weapon Station That Can Fire Javelin Missiles, at DSEI-2019

Kongsberg will display Protector Remote Weapon Station (RWS) equipped on Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) that can fire Raytheon/Lockheed Martin Javelin missiles, at DSEI-2019.

A TITAN Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV), featuring QinetiQ UGV control technology on a Milrem Robotics THeMIS mobility platform was used in the demonstration. Javelin and .50 caliber machine gun were fired, remotely and wireless, from a PROTECTOR Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS).

The company demonstrated firing of Javelin missile from the RWS for the first time in June of this year.

This was also the first combined Javelin and M230LF 30mm Cannon firing from a single RWS, as the event also featured the Northrup Grumman M230LF (30mm X 113mm) cannon. The KONGSBERG LW30 RWS was mounted on an Oshkosh Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV).
