STAMP Remote Controlled Weapon System
The Stabilized Machine Gun Platform (STAMP) is a stabilized weapon system with automatic target tracking feature, which is mounted on a stabilized turret including Electro-Optical sight units and can be remotely controlled via the Weapon Control Unit.
Thanks to the Electro Optic system it has on the STAMP System, it enables the detection of targets that cannot be seen with the naked eye at night and under adverse visibility conditions, the automatic recognition of targets, their tracking and firing.
The turret has been stabilized so that the gun sighting line is not affected by the movements of the platform on which the system is mounted and remains on the target. At the same time, the system, which has automatic target tracking and ballistic calculation capabilities, allows accurate shooting when the platform or target is in motion.
12.7 mm M2 or 12.7mm GA-19/A Gatling, 7.62 mm machine gun or 40 mm grenade launcher can be used as weapons in the STAMP System. It can be integrated with radar, meteorological sensors and similar sensors in marine vehicles for different mission needs.
