showcased its new STAMP turret system at DIMDEX 2012
developed a remote-controlled stabilised machine gun known as STAMP
for defending against asymmetric threats. The system is envisaged for
use on land and sea-based platforms including coastal and border defence.
STAMP has a stabilized turret which enables the line-of-sight of the
gun to be aimed at the target at all times. Due to the stabilization
feature, the system can perform precise firings against stationary or
moving targets while the platform is on-the-move.
STAMP can be operated remotely by using the remote gun control unit
and hence enables gunner protection against counter fire. The system
has additional features of defining the firing zones both in azimuth
and elevation and automatic charging of the gun remotely.

STAMP has a modular structure enabling easy installation on various
naval platforms, land vehicles or for use at stationary control and
surveillance locations for the purpose of asymmetric warfare, coastal
and land border defense and protection of strategic facilities.
12.7 mm Machine Gun or 7.62 mm Machine Gun and 40 mm Grenade Launcher
and various sensors can be used on STAMP according to the tactical requirements.
Remote Gun Control Unit
Remote Gun Control Unit has an ergonomic design with a ruggedized LCD
monitor which displays reticle, target range scale, turret azimuth and
elevation axis position in numerical and graphical form, field-of-view
of the sight system, number of remaining rounds, system operation mode,
fault warning symbols and other information for the gunner.
• STAMP has a modular structure, which enables selected features
to be excluded or added according to specific requirements. The STAMP
system has the following sub-units: turret

• thermal camera
• day tv camera
• laser range-finder
• system Interface Unit
• slip ring
• gun re-cocking unit
