Gun Control Battery Unit (GCBU)

The Gun Control Battery Unit (GCBU) is a self-contained solution for powering 24-48VDC gun systems. With its onboard battery and flexible connection options, the GCBU allows for fully federated gun integration on land, sea, and air platforms.

The CGBU requires only three signals (Standby/Arm/Trigger) for operation. It can source those signals from itself or the platform, providing unmatched versatility to keep the weapon operating in any scenario.
