BAE Systems has been awarded a contract by the US Naval Air Systems Command to provide a defensive weapon system for NAVAIR’s V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft.

Under the $14m contract, BAE will produce and support a belly-mounted, all-quadrant defensive weapon capability for the Osprey aircraft.

The weapon system is based on the remote guardian system (RGS), a remotely operated defensive weapon system that provides 360° of suppressive weapons fire for the V-22.

The RGS is a common airborne defensive capability designed to be belly mounted on the V-22 to deliver accurate, sustained fire throughout the aircraft’s flight envelope.
