- Reduced life cycle cost of the weapon
The armorer software coupled with the FN SmartCore® reports any replacements or checks required on the major components of the weapon. This facilitates maintenance and logistic operations at armorer’s level and results in an optimized weapon fleet wear management.
- Optimized operational availability of the weapon
The FN SmartCore® allows optimized management of maintenance operations by the armorer, hence ensuring improved weapon reliability in the theater of operations.
- Realtime battlefield communication
By transmitting the conditions of use of the weapon through the communication system of the infantryman, the FN SmartCore® is able to provide automated reporting onto the Battle Management System (or BMS), allowing the upper level of command to be informed of any exchange of fire in real time. The FN SmartCore® has therefore a vital role to play in Future Soldier Programs.
