Samson - All-round battle-proven solutions for low-to-high intensity combat threats.

Globally integrated on thousands of fielded ground and naval platforms, RAFAEL'S Samson family of advanced RWS capitalizes on extensive combat experience with a deep understanding of emerging military needs. All of the RWS elements utilize more than 90% tested and qualified Manufacturer Off-the-Shelf (MOTS) hardware and software. All these render SAMSON the most cost-effective solution for securing optimal operational capabilities while minimizing risks.
