EOS Pty Limited is an Australian corporation that has been at the forefront of the development of remote weapon stations since 1993. In 1993, EOS was awarded the US Army contract for the development of the SACMFCS (Small Arms Common Module Fire Control System) and in 1998 EOS was awarded the US Army development contract for its CROWS (Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station). These two weapon system development programs were until 2007, the only US Army development efforts in remote weapon systems and related technology. This was the genesis of the entire field of remote weapon stations, with over 18,000 having been produced globally. EOS anticipated the emphasis on 30mm weapons for modern combat vehicles and vessels and began an accelerated 30mm development program in 2009. The complete line of RWS developed and produced EOS over the past 10 years includes light, medium and heavy variants for a vast range of automatic weapons. This level of development and investment in the effective support and deployment of these weapons is unique in the industry.
