Opto Space & Defense has signed an MoU with Smart Shooter to market the latter’s range of solutions in Brazil, addressing the military and public security markets.
Specialising in development and manufacture of optronic systems for the space and defence markets, Opto will represent Smart Shooter's SMASH Fire Control solutions, which allow the operator to quickly and effectively neutralize any ground or airborne, manned or unmanned threat through automatic detection, tracking, and effective engagement. The new partnership provides support in the marketing, training and after-sales support for the Israeli company’s products in Brazil in this first phase. Further activities are foreseen in this MoU, including market expansion in a second phase and even assembly, integration, testing and manufacture of some parts in Brazil in a subsequent phase.

“We […] are confident that together we will bring real value for the defence and security forces in Brazil. SMASH is a combat-proven fire control solution that ensures each round finds its target. Bringing precision-missile targeting algorithms and advanced electro-optical processing capabilities into standard infantry, SMASH offers a unique ‘One Shot-One Hit’ capability and ultimately revolutionises the world of small arms and optics,” added Smart Shooter CEO, Michal Mor.
