To be highlighted at AUSA, the solution allows for full control of the rocket while airborne

AUSA 2014, October 13-15, Washington D.C., USA, Israel Pavilion, Hall B, Stand #2462

MTC Industries and Research - a leader in the design, development and manufacture of a range of systems for the Aerospace and Defense markets – will present its unique Mortar and Rocket Steering Unit at the AUSA Annual Meeting Exposition 2014.

MTC's advanced solution is a high performance, exceptionally accurate, and reliable steering system for mortars and rockets. As part of a flagship project, MTC has developed steering units that can adjust or steer the rocket or mortar towards the target at any time and under any weather conditions while in the air.

This capability, and the precision enabled by the system, significantly reduces collateral damage - including injury to civilians in the vicinity. The steering unit also decreases the amount of mortars and the number of launches required, due to a hit rate of 70% - representing considerable savings. The system is operated by four separate electric DC motors, driving 4 foldable wings, which are locked in a folded position.

According to Mr. Yechiel Cohen, President and Founder of MTC Industries Research, "Mortars and rockets have a significant drawback - they are not very accurate, and can thus potentially cause harm to uninvolved populations and untargeted structures in the area. In order to give armies around the world a solution minimizing injuries to civilians and damage to neutral structures, MTC has developed a mechanical-engineering system that enables control over mortars and rockets until they reach their targets."
