Welcome To Armatix

Armatix envisions a world in which the tragedy of accidental firearm deaths is a thing of the past. Our Smart System consists of a radio-controlled watch that is responsible for gun access and use. A Smart System gun will only shoot if it is within range of this watch. It is possible to release the safety mechanism via the radiocontrolled watch activated by means of a PIN code. As soon as the gun loses radio contact with the watch ‐ e.g. if it is knocked out of the shooter's hand or in case of loss, theft, etc. ‐ it automatically deactivates itself. Mechatronics allows weapons and weapon systems to be networked with computers.

Smart systems are the future of firearm safety.
