The weapon assembly will be manufactured in Lynchburg, Va. by Wegmann, USA. The MBS electronics will be provided by L-3. ADS will provide the final integration of the electronics and weapon assembly into a complete SMAW mod 2 system.
“It’s important to highlight, while ADS is the single award on this contract, we were successful because we brought two great and innovative companies together, L-3 and Wegmann, to develop a great product,” said Grant Sherfick, ADS, Inc. Weapons & Optics market manager. “With these improvements and the superior technology of the MBS, the SMAW Mod 2 is the most technologically advanced rocket launcher in the United States inventory.”
