MULE

Multi-Use Launcher Electronics (MULE)

The MULE is a multi-use capability that interfaces to the Commonly Remotely Operated Weapons System (CROWS) allowing a user to engage and launch several munitions from a remote location. Interfaces supported include the Javelin missile, laser guided rockets, and loitering munitions. The MULE receives commands and communicates status via a standard 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet connection. It can be utilized on a static platform but has also been demonstrated on multiple manned and unmanned aircraft.
