Palletized Weapon System (PaWS)

The Palletized Weapon System (PaWS) is a rapidly reconfigurable collection of sensors, communications and weapons that can be installed onto most medium- to heavy-lift aircraft.

PaWS includes enhanced electro-optical/infrared targeting sensors, a trainable 30 mm cannon, precision-guided munitions, advanced communications and a networked mission management system. These modular modifications provide end users the ability to execute intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, strike, and mobility missions in support of deployed forces.
