Innovation driven solutions to counter current and emerging threats
Taking advantage of its long-standing firearms expertise, the company started a decade ago to develop its first remote weapon station. This opened up a new business line that requires combined in-house expertise in firearms, integrated electronics, optoelectronics, software and power-drive technologies.
FN Herstal offers a complete family of remote weapon stations called deFNder® in order to meet today’s operational requirements. The deFNder® Remote Weapon Stations provide optimized remote firing capability day and night while keeping the operator completely under armor protection. The deFNder® family includes three models: the deFNder® Light, the deFNder® Medium and the Sea deFNder®, the latter specifically designed for naval applications.
Highly flexible, FN Herstal collaborates with End Users and/or OEMs to ensure the systems are properly integrated onto their land or naval vehicles, for both new and already in-service platforms.
