Accokeek, MD --(Ammoland.com)- During the 2013 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition held at the convention center in Washington, DC, Beretta Defense Technologies (BDT), on behalf of Beretta USA, along with T.Worx Ventures (TWV – a subsidiary of Prototype Productions, Inc.) officially displayed a breadboard concept of the Beretta ARX160 integrated with Intelligent Rail technology.

The selection of T.Worx this past August was the result of a multi-year assessment by Beretta USA while reviewing and monitoring technologies worldwide for a powered rail capability.

The T.Worx powered rail technology, developed through US Army SBIR funding and patented as the Intelligent Rail is currently the NATO standard for powered rails. Working with Beretta, T.Worx will integrate it into the ARX160 and ARX100 with tentative plans to have working prototypes by Summer 2014.

Gabriele de Plano, Vice President of Military Marketing & Sales stated, “Beretta USA is excited about the opportunity to be part of the first fully integrated, powered and data rail weapon system. T.Worx is a diverse organization on the forward edge of bringing tangible innovation to the market.”

He continued by adding,“The ability to provide power to aiming devices and sighting systems along with the capability to transfer data places the Intelligent Rail in a unique position that Beretta and our sister companies, most notably Steiner and Laser Devices Inc., will be able to be the first to market with a fully integrated weapon system.” Subsequent to AUSA, BDT displayed the concept at Ft. Bragg, NC during SOFEX 2013 and will have it on display at SHOT Show in January 2014 (Booth #13962).

“T.Worx is pleased to partner with Beretta and BDT to integrate the Intelligent Rail technology with the ARX160 and ARX100 family of weapons,” stated Don McLaughlin, CEO for T.Worx Ventures.

He continued by stating, “With the ARX’s advanced polymer design, the Intelligent Rail technology is more easily integrated into the production weapons, which will provide operators and end-users with a lighter weight and more streamlined solution for weapon accessory power and data management. With the global emphasis on soldier modernization and network-enabled small arms systems, the integrated ARX160 and ARX100 platforms will meet the need for tactical network connectivity, without adding the bulk and complexity associated with previous soldier network initiatives.”

Beretta and TWV will be demonstrating the ARX160 Intelligent Rail mock-up and breadboard at Beretta’s booth at the 2014 SHOT Show (Booth #13962).
