MOOG DEVELOPS NON-LETHAL GRENADE LAUNCHER FOR RAPID DEPLOYMENT

6/21/2012

East Aurora, NY, USA, June 11, 2012 - Moog Space and Defense Group, part of Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B), is debuting and demonstrating its new EAGLS (Electrically Articulated Grenade Launcher System) non-lethal grenade launcher at Eurosatory 2012. This unit has been developed to support the military's need for rapidly deployable, escalation of force, mission ready equipment. The applique system gives troops the ability to accurately target and disperse a crowd without using lethal force.

"Our goal with this new launcher is to provide a self-contained, fully articulated system which can be added to any combat or tactical vehicle to increase mission capability through obscuration or threat deterrence," said Tony Peck, Moog's business unit director for Defense Controls. "The system will provide our customers an easy to install, inexpensive asset that increases the survivability of both the vehicle and troops in a variety of engagement scenarios."

EAGLS is designed to accommodate the 66mm family of non-lethal grenades, including both smoke and anti-riot. The system is comprised of an electromechanically controlled, dual-axis positioner supporting two grenade discharge racks and a wide angle day sight camera. Each discharge rack has the capacity for six grenades and allows troops to individually position and deploy grenades up to 100m. The launcher is continuously adjustable in azimuth and discretely adjustable in elevation for range select. It also features an optional surveillance suite for 360o situational awareness and active stabilization for low bandwidth, shoot on the move capability.

At Eurosatory (Hall 5, stand B270) Moog will display the EAGLS demonstrator on top of a 6 degree of freedom motion platform to show both the functional capabilities of the grenade launcher, and the testing capabilities of the Moog motion base. The units can be demonstrated independently or together to highlight Moog's unique precision motion control technologies for defense applications.
