Proven capability and capacity to host maximum multi-domain lethality payloads
RIwP is a proven, modular, and scalable remote turret providing unmatched capacity to host multi-domain payloads for current and future ground-combat platforms. This remote weapon platform offers air defense, anti-armor, or multi-mission capabilities via world-class precision medium-caliber and indirect fires.
Designed to be weapon, sight, and platform agnostic, RIwP accommodates firepower growth to support future mission requirements. With survivability in mind the turret allows the warfighter to reload while under armor. This illustration depicts popular configurations to meet the full spectrum of remote turret related missions with a standard cupola being the centerpiece to build tailorable and reconfigurable “plug-and-play” weapons solutions.
The RIwP family of remote turrets shares 85% commonality of subcomponents with all configurations thereby minimizing logistical footprint size and sustainment costs, maximizing training efficiency, and reducing total cost of ownership.
RIwP’s design allows the warfighter to reload the direct fire weapons from inside the vehicle under full armor protection. Options for add-on armor are available.
RIwP allows for pre-planned mechanical, electrical, and software interfaces to support the swapping of payloads. Payloads can be changed in minutes with organic maintenance personnel and minimal lift capability.
RIwP is the centerpiece for the Army’s Maneuver Short Range Air Defense Increment 1 (M-SHORAD, Inc 1) program and is supporting numerous other government operational needs.
The Payload and Platform Agnostic RIwP
The RIwP has the ability to support a wide range of weapons and sights, RIwP can be built to fit your mission's purpose from air defense, anti-armor, to multi-mission situations. It can be fully customized and reconfigured in the field. Build your RIwP with current payloads today, knowing this remote weapon station can accommodate firepower growth to support future mission needs.

General Dynamics Land System TRX Robotic Platform Make It Debut at CANSEC 2023
Displayed at Booth 1301 with short-range air defense (SHORAD) payload for the first time, this TRX variant is the latest innovation within Land Systems’ counter-Uncrewed Aerial Systems (c-UAS) family of vehicles. A robotic SHORAD solution can go to the tactical edge of the battlefield, providing soldiers a standoff capability from the enemy. Read More
The latest counter-UAS system targets drones with dual-defeat kinetics and EW
Key partners include Moog who provides their Reconfigurable Integrated-weapons Platform (RIwP®) turret… The RIwP turret includes a high-quality Leonardo DRS EO/IR sensor and Northrop Grumman’s XM914 (30mmx113mm) cannon which has been proven very effective against drones using proximity-fused ammunition. The turret also hosts Raytheon’s Coyote missile, and these kinetic effectors can defeat Group 1 through Group 3 UAS at very long ranges. Read More
Latest Batch Of Ukraine Aid Includes Air Defenses, New Counter UAS
The list also features new C-UAS systems, including nine 30mm gun trucks. The Pentagon did not specify which system this is, but Leonardo DRS recently received $60 million contracts from the U.S. Army for its Mobile-Low, Slow, Small Unmanned Aircraft System Integrated Defeat System (M-LIDS). The system features a 30mm cannon on a Moog Inc. turret mounted on a vehicle. Read More
General Dynamics unit puts short-range air defense on robotic vehicle
The M-SHORAD is a Stryker A1 combat vehicle-based system that includes a Moog turret and a mission equipment package designed by Leonardo DRS. That package includes Raytheon Technologies’ Stinger missile launcher. Read More
This may be the Army’s new missile-slinging battlebot of choice
The M-SHORAD system that appeared atop the TRX in Huntsville this week consisted of a Moog Reconfigurable Integrated-weapons Platform (RIwP) turret touting FIM-92 Stinger missiles, an XM914 30×113 mm chain gun, and a 7.62mm M240 machine gun in a mission equipment package developed by U.S. defense contractor Leonardo DRS to defeat incoming unmanned aerial vehicles and rotary wing aircraft.
