Weapon Stabilization System – The Reaper

SGW Designworks was hired to redesign and provide product optimization services for Reaper weapons stabilization system, the Primary focus was on internal tension systems, durability, prototype development, and preparation for manufacturing.

At the start of the project, Advanced Accuracy Solutions had an existing prototype and the role SGW Designworks played was to help take that prototype into a more mature iteration and ultimately get the product ready for manufacture.

The Reaper System is a hard-working piece of equipment that had to be highly durable, reliable, and easy to use. The original intended use of the system was to stabilize weapons being fired from helicopters. Including carbine rifles and machine guns, however, Advanced Accuracy Solutions has also applied the Reaper to sniping applications and sees a use for the system for hunters who may have disabilities.

This project is one of several small arms, military and defense projects SGW Designworks has been involved with. You can read more about our involvement with related projects, as well as the Reaper Weapons Stabilization System by visiting our blog.
