Crew-Served Weapons

Crew Served Weapons White Background

Laser Shot manufactures high fidelity crew-served simulated weapons that can be added to a simulator package for marksmanship fundamentals or unstabilized gunnery training at the unit level. Crew-served weapons training is provided through the use of  SMART™ weapons and the Weapons Interface software. For maximum data collection and for an instructor’s ability to induce malfunctions, a series of weapons with both data and compressed air tethers has been developed. Crew-served weapons, tethered M4s, and Crosshair™ weapons will fall into this category. Series 2 - SMART™ weapons transmit data back to the system and accept compressed air for the recoil system through a single umbilical into the weapon along with a data cable.

SMART™ weapons allow for the mandatory changing of fed rounds and proper cycling of weapons before bringing the weapon back online. Logic is programmed into the Weapon Interface that ensures proper reloading or clearing procedures are performed. SMART™ weapons provide instructors with an unmatched amount of data on each of their trainees’ weapons, including safety status, round count, and orientation (weapon cant), and can induce various weapon malfunctions such as jams, and in particular crew-served models: overheating, meltdowns and runaways, at the instructor’s discretion in order to train for weapons manipulation and contingencies in combat. Compressor systems are available for customers who prefer Series 2 Tethered Weapons.
