Nir-Or, an Israeli company that designs, develops, manufactures and integrates electronic systems and products for land, air, and sea military applications, is launching a new product with another Israeli company, Axon-Vision, which develops AI for the defense sector.
The two companies announced that they will present the EdgeRCWS, an AI system for Next-Generation Remotely Controlled Weapon Stations (NG RCWS), at the Eurosatory 2022 exhibition, which will take place in Paris starting tomorrow (Monday).
According to companies, the jointly-developed system integrates real-time AI analytics and offers the commander maximum efficiency, lethality, and precision. Small and lightweight, the EdgeRCWS is an add-on solution that can be easily integrated into different turrets and weapon stations, and can include smart fire sequences to extend and automate fire support missions.
The EdgeRCWS will be presented in combination with Nir-Or's smart video system, which incorporates AI capabilities, automatic target recognition (ATR), auto-tracking of multiple targets and smart scanning, and enhances the force's situational awareness.
Nir-Or supplies its advanced video system for the IDF's Namer and Eitan (8X8) Armored fighting vehicles (AFVs). The company now announced that it is moving to the next step, which involves implementing AI capabilities into these systems, together with Axon-Vision.
