Elbit Systems has developed a new Assault Rifle Combat Application System (ARCAS) riflescope based on artificial intelligence. It transforms the soldier’s assault rifle into a portable combat information center and also lets you shoot from around a corner.
ACRAS is designed to be mounted on existing rifles. It is equipped with a laptop with artificial intelligence and an electro-optical sight, which is installed in the front grip of the weapon. The computer collects data from the sight, tactical information that is transmitted from other ARCAS devices, as well as mechanical indicators from the rifle itself.
After processing, the data from the field of view of the electro-optical sight and other information is transmitted to the soldier. Using them, the soldier can read the distance to the target in real time, taking into account the wind and not only.
Also, the video system helps the soldier to shoot from around the corner and from the hip. The device is controlled using the joystick button on the front handle or the graphical user interface. The basic ARCAS comes with a thermal or low light scope, but it can be modified to run third-party applications.
