Syncroness was tasked with developing the video and control systems that would make it possible to control the weapon from a safe distance. Firing a weapon seems easy at first, but a lot of variables go into making the shot: positive identification of the target, distance to the target, angle of the elevation, the muzzle velocity of the ammunition, the weapon being used, the ballistic drop and parallax between the scope and bore. Keeping track of these variables is difficult at range, particularly if the target is returning fire.
The Remotely Operated Weapons System (ROWS) from Precision Remotes manages much of the complex information required to make a quality shot while keeping the operator at a safer distance. The system was designed to be deployed in-theatre to assist our armed forces in accomplishing missions and to protect high-value targets such as embassies and nuclear power plants.[...]
