Manufactured by: FN Herstal
The FN SmartCore® is an electronic system which analyses and records the conditions of use of a weapon in order to reduce the life cycle cost of the weapon, optimise the operational availability of the weapon and communicate any exchange of fire to the upper level of command in real time. The FN SmartCore® is a fully automated system with full transparency to the infantryman and fully integrated, with no impact on the balance of the weapon. The FN SmartCore® ensures accurate and smart counting of all shots (ball and blank) as well as having the ability to discriminate between shots and other shocks. The FN SmartCore® measures and takes into account rates of fire and firing cycles, which have a direct impact on the weapon and component durability. Various types of weapons can accept the FN SmartCore® .
