Army RWS Cameras

CST’s RWS cameras for remote weapon stations are the perfect choice for customers demanding the highest performing electro-optical weapon targeting/guidance sub-systems, capable of operating under extreme temperature, shock, and vibration conditions.

The camera system is bore-sighted to achieve a precision of 0.1-0.2 mrad boresight retention @NFOV and the full temperature from -40°C to +70°C, which is important for ordnance guidance. The specific systems have a start-up time of 5 seconds and can therefore provide images immediately upon power-up. The cameras are designed for low-power operation and do not require a heater even for low temperature operation.

The products all comply with MIL-Std 810F and can therefore be installed on both tracked and wheeled vehicles.

The CST ARMY RWS cameras are available for different applications:

  • Weapon Sights
  • Close-In Weapon System
  • Air Defence System
  • Remote Weapon System

The CST NAVY RWS – CIWS cameras are available for different applications:​

  • Weapon sights​
  • Close-In Weapon System​
  • Air Defence System​
  • Remote Weapon System​
  • Gun alignment​

Custom & OEM solutions

CST is a company with a long tradition of working closely with its customers, identifying unmet requirements, and creating solutions with sustainable value for the users.

With a strong R&D base at the headquarters in Denmark, CST can provide mechanical, optical, software and hardware customizations while meeting the toughest requirements for military, homeland security, and high-end surveillance applications. Whether it is just a ruggedized high-precision zoom lens, a camera, or a complete system comprising lens, camera and advanced video processing, CST can offer a fast-track design process.

In addition to the customized products, CST offer a range of standard products designed specifically for integration directly into 3rd party equipment. This is in many cases a cost-effective alternative to customized products.

Contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

Together we can create a solution that provides the best price/performance ratio.



Our RWS cameras are also available as open frame solutions and are designed to make it easy for system integrators to integrate CST high-end cameras in large systems for surveillance, security, defense or other entities.

The open frame cameras entail sensor, optics, and camera controller, for our customers to easily integrate in their own EO-system. The open frame cameras are within the visible band, to operate during day and down to half moonlight conditions and are operational at temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C.
