After more than 20 years of use in the field, Remotely Operated Weapon Stations have become a well-established market. The advantages they offer are significant, including crew protection, increased accuracy, first-round hit probability, target recognition and identification, low production, integration, and operational cost. Most importantly they can significantly increase the firepower of smaller and legacy platforms, thus increasing their range of capabilities or extending their utility in the modern battlefield.

The outbreak of the war in Ukraine has shown that a confrontation between peer or near-peer competitors is not a possibility that could happen in the distant future, but a highly like scenario. In such confrontations, firepower, long-range fires and ISR are elements that play a key role.

However, the defence industries were unprepared for the requirements of a high-intensity warfare, and they have been struggling to deliver the required capabilities. That is an issue further exacerbated by the risks posed by the current economic and political climate which impacts defence budgets and supply chains.

In such a tight framework ROWS can deliver significant capabilities to new and legacy platforms in a timely and affordable manner. There is also an important development in the ROWS market that no one should disregard, as they are expected to change the conduct of combat operations.

Just as radio brought a small revolution in technical and military affairs when it was used as a medium to guide weapons, ROWS will bring a similar change, not only as standalone systems but also as part of a networked environment and on top of unmanned ground or surface vehicles.

The current global security environment poses many challenges either in the form of low-intensity conflicts too. With major forces around the globe being in need of fielding disruptive technologies with fire delivery capabilities, platforms or unmanned systems with ROWS, interconnected through IoMT over a C2 backbone, will serve that goal effectively and affordably.

Recognizing that potential of the market, a significant number of manufacturers around the world are positioning themselves by developing their own ROWS. That creates a highly competitive environment for businesses, which will be better served through the creation of economies of scale.
