The T-Worx Intelligent Rail Gets Tested And Approved By The U.S. Army

T-Worx I-Rail

Existing rifles in the U.S. Army can be turned into “Smarter” Weapons with the Intelligent Rail from T-Worx, a subsidiary of Prototype Productions.  The product has been tested and approved under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) between the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC), and T-Worx.

Shortened as the I-Rail, T-Worx describes it as a software and hardware platform that can be fitted seamlessly in weapon. Once installed, it provides centralized power and data analytics to that can assist in improving operator performance and safety. Benefits are enhanced control, reduced fatigue, and increase in agility and performance.

The I-Rail also addresses the U.S. Army’s Number One warfighting challenge, which is a lack of situational awareness among soldiers and commanders in complex battlefield conditions. With the I-Rail it powers, connects, and communicates data securely from rifles and accessories to command centers on and off the battlefield.

“Anything critical to the modernization of warfighters’ weaponry, safety and lives must be tested in an environment similar to where it will be deployed and in consideration of additional Department of Defense use,” said executive chairman Devin Schain in a press put out by the company last January 18, 2019.

With the certification, T-Worx can be allowed to provide support to the competitors in the upcoming Next Generation Squad Weapons (NGSW) program which is the U.S. Army’s search for a new weapon that can fire bullets that can defeat body armor of potential enemies as the present 5.56mm around is found to be inadequate against new body armor.

Schain added noted that, “We are proud to work with the U.S. Army team supporting its small arms modernization efforts. The company is poised to help make a difference in modern warfare and real-time intelligence of the American warfighter.”
