JOHANNESBURG (BNS): BAE Systems will unveil newly designed and developed light-weight Self Defence Remotely Operated Weapon (SD-ROW) turret, at the upcoming Africa Aerospace and Defence 2010 (AAD) exhibition.

The exhibition will be held from 21-25 September, 2010, Cape Town, South Africa.

"The SD-ROW turret is a cost effective solution for first-order defence for many types of operational vehicles, such as logistics transport carriers, lighter attack and other mine-protected vehicles and allows under-armour protected target engagement without exposing the gunner," Johan Steyn, Managing Director for Land Systems South Africa, said in a company news release.

The newly developed SD-ROW turret is specially designed for simple installation and removal on a variety of soft-skinned, light armoured and mine protected vehicles with specific emphasis on logistical carriers. Its unique weapon system is equipped with a small calibre arm which has a target-range of 600 metre.

It has "on-the-move" engagement capability and it can be operated by one crew member from under or behind cover. The gunner or driver can operate the weapon without changing their position.
