Israeli fire control systems developer Smart Shooter has unveiled Smash X4, a fire control system with a x4 magnifying optic scope.

Presented at the Eurosatory exhibition in Paris, France, Smash X4 is designed to increase the accuracy and lethality of small arms.

The Smash systems use video analysis to enhance a shooter’s effectiveness. Once the shooter selects a target by pulling and holding the trigger, the system waits until it has “lock-on” and neutralizes the target.

Smash X4 combines a x4 magnifying optic scope with Smart Shooter’s Smash fire control capabilities, thus providing extended detection, recognition & identification ranges for the shooter as well as extended lethality ranges.

The new system also includes an etched reticle to allow shooting without battery power.

An optional integrated laser range finder (LRF) enables range measurement both as a user-initiated capability as well as a system input for improved precision. Night-capability is also available by using the X4 with thermal night vision devices as a clip-on.

The company also revealed that it recently completed the delivery of thousands of additional Smash systems for the Israeli defense forces and other customers.

Equipped with an onboard computer to perform complex targeting solutions, Smash enhances situational awareness and can be operated as a stand-alone solution as well as combined with other systems to provide an effective multi-layer defense solution.

“Handheld operated, remotely controlled, robotic or UAV mounted, the Smash technology provides a multi-applicative capability and enables the platoon to be smart, precise and connected,” Michal Mor, Smart Shooter CEO, commented.

“By combining advanced augmentation display with connectivity to sensors, C4I systems and other Smash solutions, the Smash technology enhances the force’s situational awareness and lethality.”
