Rapid Actuation Direct Drive System

Our Rapid Actuation Direct Drive System (RADDS) enables weapons systems to fire and hit targets in the blink of an eye. The RADDs delivers the highest possible acceleration and speed while maintaining shot accuracy. This direct drive solution is ruggedized and weatherproofed to military standards such as MIL-STD-810, and provides position accuracy to less than 0.1° with extremely fast movements on the X and Y axes.

For intrinsic safety, our RADDS includes holding brakes and redundancy for all safety functions. The RADDS can be delivered in different sizes and designs to accommodate varying numbers of extremely fast-moving launchers and other mounted weapons.
