Rockets & Guns Armament System

By Niron Systems & Projects

In today’s increasing hostile environment, even utility helicopters and light aircraft platforms need security enhancements to improve survivability and ensure mission completion.

Any self-defense solution should include offensive capabilities, to deter and repel enemy attacks.


A good offensive Self-defense system must provide guaranteed performance and operational readiness, while keeping operating and maintenance tasks to a minimum. In addition, the system should provide for continuous implementation of innovative process and hardware improvements.
