The Spanish leading defense and engineering company Escribano Mechanical & Engineering has integrated successfully the first four GUARDIAN Remote Weapon Systems (RWS) for the Bulgarian MoD.
These RWS has been integrated in the 4×4 Armored Vehicles produced by SAMEL-90 for the Bulgarian Special Operations Forces. In the coming months another eight GUARDIAN RWS are being expected to be incorporated.
Especially designed to be integrated on a vast range of platforms and vehicles, the GUARDIAN system provides excellent capabilities for short and mid-range defence. At the same time, it has an optimal accuracy when firing due to a newly designed stabilized system in two axes. This system is linked to the latest technology on electrooptical systems from EM&E, which allows detection, recognition, and identification of targets at a higher range than its competitors.
Highly customizable because of its modular architecture, this RWS is an excellent solution against asymmetric threats, and it can operate in extreme conditions. This design makes maintenance easier and increases its reliability.
Speaking on the occasion, Ángel Escribano, CEO, said: This contract represents a great milestone for our company showing that the Spanish Defense Industry is a strong and safe partner.
ESCRIBANO M&E manufactures and designs its products with a clear commitment to offering the most innovative and creative solutions for the defense sector consolidating its international presence.
