The U.S. Army Reserve is receiving a weapon technology known as the CROWS, allowing the gunner to sit safely in the back seat. The CROWS stands for Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station, mounted to the top of a vehicle, equipped with daytime and thermal cameras, able to rotate 360 degrees, see up to 1,500 meters away, and compatible with four major crew weapon systems. In all, it’s estimated that 27 companies will receive the units, 19 of which are military police. The project is estimated to field approximately $39 million worth of equipment to the Army Reserve.
