SMART SHOOTER has revealed the SMASH Dragon – an armed drone system incorporating SMART SHOOTER’s combat-proven SMASH Technology designed to help military and law enforcement professionals swiftly and accurately neutralize their targets.

The SMASH Dragon, which incorporates the company’s combat-proven SMASH technology that ensures precision targeting of hostile objects, is an advanced robotic weaponry payload that can be mounted on drones and other Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). It can incorporate various types of assault rifles, sniper rifles, 40mm, and other ammunition with great precision.

Featuring SMASH’s proprietary target acquisition and tracking algorithms as well as sophisticated computer vision capabilities, the remotely operated SMASH Dragon offers the SMASH technology’s fast and precise hit capabilities. Extremely lightweight with long mission endurance, SMASH Dragon integrates a unique stabilization concept with the SMASH technology that enables the system to accurately hit static and moving targets while flying. 

The system successfully completed live firing tests and is currently under advanced stages of development. 

“Smart Shooter’s SMASH technology offers precise elimination of threats at ground, air and sea,” said Michal Mor, SMART SHOOTER CEO. “We are now happy to offer the same precise, combat-proven target engagement technology mounted on an unmanned aerial platform that can be controlled from a distance. 

“When it comes to drones, platform weight is a critical factor as it impacts mission endurance and cost, and we are proud to announce that the extremely lightweight SMASH Dragon meets this criterion.”
