Featured Products



SafeShot is an off-the-shelf, standard TM and FTS solution that can be tailored to any platform and used across multiple programs. The cost-effective, scalable solution is an alternative to expensive legacy systems that are weapon-specific with no cross-platform reuse. Through standardization, SafeShot reduces cost and enables economies of scale through manufacturing and a reduced subcontract data requirements list.

SafeShot enables customers to test weapons with munitions intact. With enough room to leave the munition intact, customers can more accurately mimic real tactical applications, resulting in better quality performance data.

Integrated, compact telemetry (TM) and flight safety system

L3Harris’ SafeShot provides a cost-effective, compact and fully integrated telemetry and flight termination system (FTS) that enables weapons to be tested, qualified and put into the hands of warfighters faster than ever before.
