FN Herstal will be electronically showcasing its Sea defender remote weapons station (RWS) for naval applications during EURONAVAL Online this week.

Based on the defender-Medium for ground applications, Sea defender provides the facility for any naval platform – including unmanned surface vessels (USV) – to counter current and emerging asymmetric threats. Its standardised open architecture allows integration with combat management systems and external sensors as well as third-party equipment. The architecture also allows several RWS to be controlled by a single C2 system, opening the door to a collaborative network of deFNders.

Other FN machine guns, such as the .50 calibre M3R featuring a rate of fire of up to 1,100rpm, are also available for integration and require no changes to the overall architecture.
