HDT has integrated remote weapon stations from many different manufacturers and conducted live-fire testing, including with the 30 mm auto cannon shown above. We have received safety releases from the US Army Test and Evaluation Command for soldiers to operate these systems in the field.
All these systems work through a secure wireless communications link to a remote operator, who is solely responsible for identifying targets, aiming the weapon and firing. The weapon systems themselves have no autonomy.
An unmanned Hunter WOLF can operate with light infantry in rugged terrain where manned vehicles cannot go. Arming a WOLF gives these small infantry units much heavier weapons and far more ammunition than they could otherwise carry on their own. In expeditionary operations, this greater firepower makes small units far more mission effective.
