Nuco Industrial Services unveils the latest generation of the ‘cannons’ for industrial security, cybersecurity and other uses
A new generation of Cannons, the first of which is being unveiled this week, will replace older weapons and technology in the world of industrial security and cybersecurity.
“We’ve been looking at how do we do the most efficient, secure, effective and affordable way to provide for the people that we serve and the people who need us the most,” said NUCO, the nation’s largest security, defense and manufacturing services company.
The company said the new Cannons will be more powerful and more capable than its predecessor, the XM-11, which the company acquired in 2012.
They will be capable of delivering up to 250 kilograms of explosive and other materials, the company said.
They will also be capable to detect explosives and other dangerous material, and to conduct a variety of industrial operations, including security inspections, the government said.
NUCO is in talks with several governments and industry groups, including the United States, China, Israel, Japan and South Korea, about the Cannons.
In a statement, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) said its research indicates that the new weapons could be more effective at destroying targets than their predecessors.
The company expects the new weapon to be operational in 2019.
According to the company, the new cannon is the result of a collaboration between two Canadian firms that have built a series of innovative and powerful defensive technologies for military use.
