The PITBULL™ is the next generation of light remotely Operated Weapon System (ROWS) designed to be integrated on manned and unmanned platforms.
The system's innovative sensor and camera suite gives its operator and crew enhanced visibility of the immediate surrounding as well as potential targets from afar. Additionally, The PITBULL™ integrates seamlessly with other sensors and detectors already installed on the vehicle.
This unique capacity to fuse information from a range of internal and external sensors in real-time and intuitive manner results in unparalleled situational awareness.
The PITBULL™ is controlled by the RANGER™ RCU, a "Point & Shoot"™ interface that designates the weapon towards the target simply by touching the target as it appears on the screen.
