KWESST Micro Systems (KWE.V) provides tactical support for a US military customer


KWESST Micro Systems (KWE.V) completed the second phase of three contracted deliverables to a United States military customer involving the company’s tactical awareness and situational control system (TASCS) and its integrated fire module (IFM) today, according to a press release.

The company announced in September that they had completed the first deliverable capable of providing tactical situational awareness and targeting information in real-time from a drone to ground forces and their mortar weapons systems. The second deliverable, completed today, involved customer feedback from the first phase to improve about TASCS operating procedures.

“We’re encouraged that the results and user feedback from these live-fire exercises have further increased customer confidence in the TASCS system. We’re pleased at the rapid pace as well as the outcome of these exercises, especially with such a key U.S. military customer, who has now requested a proposal from the Company for a next phase of expanded exercises to start in early 2021,” said Jeff MacLeod, KWESST founder and CEO.

The results of the first two phases are now becoming the subject of the phase three report, and they confirm that TASCS IFM provides greater accuracy and stronger response times on indirect fire systems like mortars, which improves soldiers ability to survive on the battlefield as well as the improving the outcomes of the operation.

The company contends that contracted exercises like these with military customers are important phases in the process towards potential introduction into service, and they also have at least two other NATO military customers with similar requirements and demonstration contracts for the TASCS IFM system presently being considered.
