The Indian Army is interested in buying the Pitbull remote-controlled weapon station made by the Israeli company General Robotics (RCWS). The CEO of General Robotics, Shahar Gal, told Janes that the Indian Army and the Indian Navy are “willing to purchase the company’s Pitbull RCWS.”

General Robotics, an Israeli company that makes light and smart remote control weapon stations, makes the PITBULL Remote Control Weapons Stations (RCWS) with improved AI-driven capabilities. This gives armored vehicles and unmanned platforms much better situational awareness, response time, and firepower.

This is the starting point. As a lightweight RCWS; PITBULL can be outfitted with a variety of weapons and sensors, including 7.62 mm or 12.7 mm machine guns, a 40 mm Automatic Grenade Launcher (AGL), and electro-optical equipment.

The PITBULL’s innovative Smart-AI gives the platform a level of situational awareness that is unavailable in traditional remote-controlled RCWS.

Using its Target Prediction Algorithm, PITBULL can continually and independently identify, track, and calculate the expected positions of threats and friendly troops, as claimed by General Robotics’ use of smart AI technology (TPA).

By analyzing the user’s “Point & Shoot” command and trigger pull in real-time, the system can fire the gun at the precise moment the operator specifies, resulting in a 100% success rate.

The Israel Defense Forces use IAI’s Jaguar Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) on the “smart and lethal frontier,” where PITBULL’s self-aware features have been optimized for robotic systems applications. The PITBULL RCWS is adaptable to various counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) operations and may be outfitted with soft and hard-kill procedures to eliminate any unwanted aerial vehicles.
