The Weapon Control System by Optronic Means (SCAMO) is an integrated combat system that allows the joint management, command and control of Remote Weapon Stations of different calibres.
This system specially designed for coordinated missions of observation, tracking and combat has a redundant system of advanced observation OTEOS, from its acronym Observation and Tracking Electro-Optical System with a vision coverage of 360º.
The Control and Command System formed by each of the consoles of the different Weapon Stations is commanded by an additional and independent console for the Head of Mission that allows the visualization of each of the Weapon Stations that have their own electro-optical system, as well as having the OTEOS system visualization, allowing the control and coordination of the entire ship’s self-defence system.
The Head of mission has the ability to assign targets and coordinate each of the Weapon Stations in a coordinated manner according to the coverage they have on the target. SCAMO has a communications and video interface so that it can communicate with the ship’s navigation systems such as radar or combat system, and send the video of the sensors to other display systems external to the system.
