Shift5’s data collection platform offers a unique solution to address the evolving requirements of the HIMARS fleet. The M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) is a full-spectrum, combat-proven, all-weather, 24/7, lethal and responsive, wheeled precision strike weapons system.
“The HIMARS platform has proven to be a critical asset in maintaining our national security, as well as the security of our allies and partners,” said Michael Weigand, Co-founder and Chief Growth Officer of Shift5. “As these platforms continue to operate in contested environments around the globe, and as our adversaries continue to innovate, it’s of the utmost importance to ensure they’re equipped with the best platform data collection and intrusion detection systems available.”
“This employment is a perfect example of the U.S. Army’s commitment to readiness and modernization,” said GEN (R) Richard Clarke former Commander of U.S. Special Operations Command and Shift5 Board Member. “In order to ensure our military maintains its competitive edge and deters its adversaries, we need to continue putting innovative solutions like this in the hands of our warfighters.”
This engagement between Shift5 and the U.S. Army comes on the heels of a successful test on the HIMARS platform earlier this year.
