EXPAL Systems, a provider of global defense and security solutions, has revealed its new E-COMPAX and M-COUNTER electronic devices to enhance mortar systems’ operational capabilities at DSEI 2019, the Defense and Security Exhibition that takes place in London 10-13 September.
EXPAL brings innovative solutions that evolve and adapt mortar systems to the modern battlefield. These continuous improvements are focused on enhancing accuracy, reliability and maneuverability in operations to contribute to the survivability and safety of the troops.
E-COMPAX is an electronic aiming device envisioned to provide firing aiming data to mortars, covering metrics such as orientation and elevation even in a denied or degraded GPS environment (Northfinder). The system reduces the time to firing to only 30 seconds and the after-firing adjustment to less than 5 seconds. The easy interface and the software implement all necessary functionalities to perform aiming, either in a stand alone mode (on its own tablet) or integrated into a FCS computer.
The company also presents M-COUNTER, an electronic system designed to increase the safety and ease the maintenance tasks of mortar systems. The system records automatically the number, date and time of the shots performed, checks the last maintenance operations, and receives manufacturer recommendations for spare parts or shelf-life of different elements, among other functions. This information is crucial to adequate the maintenance plan for each mortar through its life cycle.
These new technologies complete EXPAL’s global solution for mortar systems consisting of 60, 81 and 120mm mortar systems, the entire portfolio of ammunition and EIMOS, the 60/81mm mortar system integrated into a high mobility vehicle. This proposal includes as well technological applications such as the Fire Control System TECHFIRE, the mini UAV used as Unmanned Forward Observer SHEPHERD-MIL, the simulator eSIMOX to train mortar units and eTRAIDS to make easier maintenance and training works.
The systems will be at EXPAL’s stand S5-150 at DSEI 2019.
