(TLSP-SOE). The purchase order was received on April 30, 2020 from Darley Defense (W.S. Darley & Co., Itasca, IL) and is in support of CCDC-AC.
The CCDC-AC chose the R400S Mk2 D (R400) 4 Axis remote weapon station for further capability analysis. The R400S Mk2 D weighs less than 1000lbs and the system is widely known for its light weight, precision, platform versatility and ability to be configured to support multiple weapons.

Performance is further enhanced with optional video tracking of targets and multi-axis stabilization. Initial Production of these systems began on May 4th at the 80,000 ft2 Huntsville, AL facility. EOS expects to deliver the R400 to CCDC-AC before the end of October 2020.
