The platform agnostic Reconfigurable Integrated-weapons Platform (RIwP)® and Weapon Stores Management System (SMS) will be featured for the U.S. Army and other industry professionals.
East Aurora, NY (Oct 10, 2019) – Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B) Space and Defense Group will highlight air and land defense weapon solutions to an audience of roughly 31,000 industry professionals at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) 2019 Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington D.C. Moog’s two key defense technologies to be featured include the RIwP – a flexible, scalable, Medium Caliber Turreted Weapon System; and a Little Bird helicopter with digital weapon SMS capabilities. These solutions can be seen on exhibit from October 14-16 in Moog’s booth #3045.
The RIwP will be featured in three booths at this year’s show.
