Ammoland.com – Paris, France – Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) – a leader in the production of combat-proven small arms for law enforcement agencies as well as governments and armies around the world – will reveal its pistol configuration for the revolutionary eLog comprehensive small arms management and control solution.
The system allows Law Enforcement and Special Forces full control of their weapons arsenal, assuring that pistols will be ready for use when needed.
According to Uri Amit, President and CEO, “The responses which began immediately following the launch of our unique solution – about six months ago – have been exceptional, as are the non-stop customer inquiries. It seems there is a general understanding that this control over weapons arsenals, whether law enforcement or military, can critically affect the readiness of the forces in real time, drastically reducing battlefield mishaps – and ultimately can enable significant savings in logistics and maintenance.”
Mr. Amit further stated, “The solution is currently undergoing an evaluation process by a number of police forces and armies – and was recently acquired by a prestigious Special Forces unit. Following the need that we have identified and inquiries from customers, we have expanded the solution, which now is available for all types of pistols.”
The solution, suitable for all types of pistols, will be demonstrated at the exhibition on JERICHO and Glock pistols. In addition, the company will present its entire portfolio, including the newcomers – the DAN .338 Bolt Action Sniper Rifle and the NEGEV NG7 LMG.
eLog – a comprehensive small arms management & control solution – digitizes the performance of every weapon system – providing precise, previously unavailable information, and allowing superior small arms and spare parts inventory and maintenance management at all levels, including theft alerts. The eLog system consists of three main components: weapon-embedded sensor modules, terminals that collect available data, and armorer management software.
The Concealed Sensor Module records the firearm’s real-time operation and performance, including the number of shots fired, the weapon’s serial number, and the last shooting record. Operated by a replaceable coin battery with an average cycle of at least 3 years, the sensor communicates with the terminal reader via RF technology, transmitting within a range of up to 40m.
The Mobile Terminal Reader, a rugged PDA that collects the recorded data, can simultaneously read data from a specific group of weapons.
The computer-based Armorer Management Software provides a detailed view of each weapon’s status and performance, and generates recommendations or modifications for maintenance and repair. Locations of stored weapons are continuously verified, with alerts sent regarding unauthorized removals.
