Mortar and rocket steering unit enables smart targeting, while reducing collateral damage

MTC Industries And Research (MTC) - Israel : 24 October, 2014  (New Product)
MTC Industries and Research is presenting its unique mortar and rocket steering unit at the AUSA Annual Meeting & Exposition 2014.
Mortar and rocket steering unit enables smart targeting, while reducing collateral damage
MTC's design is a high performance, exceptionally accurate, and reliable steering system for mortars and rockets. As part of a flagship project, MTC has developed steering units that can adjust or steer the rocket or mortar towards the target at any time and under any weather conditions while in the air. 
 
This capability, and the precision enabled by the system, significantly reduces collateral damage - including injury to civilians in the vicinity. The steering unit also decreases the amount of mortars and the number of launches required, due to a hit rate of 70% - representing considerable savings. The system is operated by four separate electric DC motors, driving four foldable wings, which are locked in a folded position.
 
According to President and Founder Yechiel Cohen, "Mortars and rockets have a significant drawback - they are not very accurate, and can thus potentially cause harm to uninvolved populations and untargeted structures in the area. In order to give armies around the world a solution minimizing injuries to civilians and damage to neutral structures, MTC has developed a mechanical-engineering system that enables control over mortars and rockets until they reach their targets."
