SIG SAUER has acquired General Robotics, a manufacturer of remote weapon stations and tactical robotics, to enhance its portfolio of advanced weapon systems.
SIG SAUER has acquired Israeli manufacturer General Robotics, a leading developer of lightweight remote weapon stations and tactical robotics for manned and unmanned platforms. During January’s SIG Range Day, the company demonstrated a new capability featuring General Robotics Remote Weapons Station-equipped Polaris All Terrain Vehicle. The PITBULL system provides stabilization for more accurate long-range shots and allows the operator to remain under cover while engaging targets. The system can be statically employed or mounted to land, air, and sea vehicles and features a large touchscreen tablet to control the unit. The acquisition will enhance SIG SAUER’s growing portfolio of advanced weapon systems, according to SIG CEO Ron Cohen.
