Description: The WASP, Weapon under Armour for Self-Protection, is a joint development between Sagem Defense Securite and Panhard & Auverland to improve protection of light armored vehicles deployed in peacekeeping missions worldwide. The WASP is a light and compact remotely-controlled self-defence turret equipped with a light machine gun, either 5.56 or 7.62mm, along with an observation and infra-red sight for day or night surveillance. Using SITEL, network-centric terminal, the WASP can provide real time imagery for exploitation by remote command stations. It was unveiled integrated into a PVP vehicle at Eurosatory 2008.

The Sea WASP is a shipborne version of the WASP remotely operated turret primarily intended for self-defense against asymmetrical threats of ships that are docked or operating offshore. It is fitted with a electro-optic and infrared (EO/IR) sensor for day and/or night surveillance and a small-caliber machine gun, either 5.56 or 7.62mm. An image fusion system facilitates at-sea detection. The turret weighs about 50 kg, is easy to install and can be operated from the ship's operations center. The Sea WASP turret is suitable for installation on a variety of ships ranging from surface combatants, merchant ships and harbor patrol boats. This variant of the WASP remotely operated turret was unveiled at the Euronaval exhibition, France, in October 2010.
