Corner Shot? is a highly technological system that protects security forces by enabling them to observe and engage a target from behind a corner without exposing any body parts.Corner Shot? ¨C The worldwide patent - has been tested and is currently being used by Special Forces, military units and law enforcement agencies around the world.
March 7, 2005 -- Corner Shot?, a weapon system that provides the ability to observe and engage a target from behind a corner, was officially unveiled in Israel. Corner Shot enables security forces to completely protect themselves from the line of fire when shooting a target. The system was invented by Amos Golan and developed together with Asaf Nadel, both senior former combat and special units officers.
Corner Shot is a highly technological system that attaches to most handguns currently used by Special Forces, for example the GLOCK, SIG SAUER, CZ, Beretta or any other handgun. It includes a small, high-resolution camera and monitor, which can observe and view a target from various vantage points. The detachable video camera enables forces to scan an area prior to pinpointing a target and broadcast the footage directly, in real time, to the operating team behind, or to a monitor at Command Post in the rear.
Corner Shot can be accurately deployed from behind any cover since the operator can view and aim via the LCD monitor which is fixed on the back of the Corner Shot.
Amos Golan, one of Corner Shot's founders and a former Anti-Terror Unit Commander, said: "I believe that the Corner Shot weapon system can be extremely beneficial in the global war on terror. It protects soldiers' lives and increases their chances of survival, while drastically improving their ability to gather information and transmit the combat scenario as well as pinpoint and engage targets out of their line of sight." He added: "Today's combat situations, especially in low intensity conflicts, involve fighting in urban terrain, and inside inhabited buildings, forced entry into airplanes, buses or trains. This unnecessarily exposes security forces to the enemy and presents an immediate risk to their lives. Corner Shot removes the need for this initial exposure."
Asaf Nadel one of Corner Shot's founders and a former commander in the Armored Corps and Secret Service, said: "The Corner Shot system is designed in a way that enables security forces to engage targets from the left, and right, from the front, up or down, and to move to each of these shooting positions very rapidly without the removal of hands from the weapon. This shortens reaction time and increases accuracy in sudden engagement situations. The weapon system can be triggered completely from behind cover."
Corner Shot contains various accessories: a variety of detachable cameras (Zoom, Day-night, Thermal), Audio/Video transmission kit, Visible and IR lasers, Tactical flashlight and more. This gives security forces a complete and reliable weapon system that enables them to respond to various close-combat situations in urban warfare. In addition - the Corner Shot shooting range is effective and accurate to 100 meters in 9mm, 40" and 45"-caliber pistols. It is effective to 200 meters with a 5.7mm-caliber pistol.
