PEO Soldier Visits FN America

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

During a recent visit to FN America, BG Potts, Program Executive Officer Soldier, looked “at emerging technologies for the Next Generation Squad Weapon.”

He didn’t just look. He also got some range time with some of FN’s rarer examples. He was photographed firing the HAMR (Heat Adaptive Modular Rifle), which was FN’s submission for the USMC Infantry Automatic Rifle program back in 2010. It uses a SCAR style upper, with a lower capable of accepting STANAG magazines. But the real secret sauce was a mechanism which converted the weapon from closed to open bolt operation based on how hot the weapon was, in order to keep it cooler.
