Description
The Spanish Defence Compnay EXPAL leader in mortar systems (weapon systems and ammunition) has developed its integrated mortar system EIMOS. EIMOS is a unique system in the market integrating an EXPAL 81 mm or 60 mm mortar, in a 4X4 lightweight vehicle. EIMOS is the natural evolution of the mortar, the adaptation of a traditional weapon to the current technological situation that fits with the latest Army requirements in the Mortar Fire Support scene. EXPAL has been pioneer, starting this evolutionary weapon line, answering the necessities of more urgent fire support actions in current conflicts. The combination of an 81 mm long-range or 60 mm mortar and a 4x4 lightweight vehicle, results in a weapon system with firepower and high mobility suited to support the units in nowadays missions, where responsiveness and mobility are crucial. Automatic aiming and control system facilitates shooting procedures as well as it allows EIMOS to get into Fire Position rapidly. The system improves precision with minimum effort, less instruction and personnel required, and saving firepower. All of this allows EIMOS to give high efficient response to fire support orders.

Technical Data
 Back to top
Armament
Expal EIMOS essentially consists of a turntable mounted 60 mm or 81 mm EXPAL integrated onto the rear of a 4 × 4 light tactical vehicle with powered elevation and traverse. The mortar is provided with all electric traverses through a full 360° and electric elevation with the hydro-pneumatic recoil system having maximum recoil of 300 mm. According to EXPAL, this recoil system reduces the recoil force by more than 90 per cent and allows it to be integrated onto light tactical vehicles with no modification to the chassis.
Design
Expal EIMOS Integrated Mortar System presents an interface to the platform, an elastic device, an automatic aiming system, plus a shooting control system. The elastic device developed reduces the efforts and vibrations transmitted to the vehicle, due to its long crossing design and optimized brake, allowing integration in most of the light all-terrain vehicles, without significant adaptations. It has been tested on bench and on a 4X4 lightweight vehicle, in any charge, unfavorable conditions and combined resistance tests. The system makes automatic corrections due to changes on the axle of the weapon caused by shooting movements or slight displacements on the vehicle position, and it allows shooting immediately after positioning and loading thanks to its sensors subsystem.
Accessories
Expal EIMOS can be used in association with TECHFIRE, a fire support information system for mortars and artillery guns. The TECHFIRE EXPAL allowing to automate the ballistic calculations, getting the maximum advantage to the latest technological advances, including a wide range of sensors as GPS, laser telemeters and inertial navigator. This links the forward observers with the unit commander who can control up to 16 mortars. This enables the EIMOS to come to a halt, carry out a fire mission and move to another firing position before counter battery fire is returned.

Combat use
Expal EIMOS can be used in association with TECHFIRE, the EXPAL Fire Support Information System, allowing automating the ballistic calculations, getting the maximum advantage to the latest technological advances, including a wide range of sensors as GPS, laser telemeters and inertial navigator.

The precision on shooting data and ballistic corrections are calculated in an automatic way, allowing a shooting optimization that decreases munitions consumption and collateral damages. EIMOS has an integrated performance in a mortar section provided with its own Command and Control (C2) system.

EIMOS Expal is a tested system with the capacity, versatility and technology necessary to fulfill the priority operative requirements in current and future scenarios, at a reasonable cost and easy maintenance, due to most of its components can be easily considered as army equipping, supported by its current logistic chain.

The EIMOS System can also be adapted to the customer needs and final requirements while facilitating integration with legacy systems such vehicles, communications means or other command and control (C2) systems.

A combat vehicle equipped with Expal EIMOS Integrated Mortar system can be in firing position in less than 10 seconds to perform the first firing. The firing control system needs only 20 seconds for target location, and 10 seconds for designation and shooting. The accuracy is less than 2 meters.
