AUSA – Colt

Colt debuted their new SWORD system at AUSA. The Sniper Weapon & Observer Reconnaissance Devices Technology Demonstrator is based on Colt Canada’s Small Arms Network Power Data System. It combines a laser designator equipped observer with snipers utilizing Android networked rifles.


SWORD not only allows the observer to designate targets for multiple shooters but the snipers can also share data across the network including live optic feeds.


The nodes in the network are IP based so data can be shared with anyone given permissions. The system can accept additional data inputs such as UAV feeds.


The various rifle mounted components include a networked optic and Android device which sit atop Colt’s powered rail which incorporates a battery in the buttstock. Alternatively, it can use a Panacis SharePack.
