5mm Advanced Combat Rifle (ACR) Utilizing cased Telescoped Ammunition
A typical program starts with a concept prepared in response to
a set of requirements. Upon approval, the concept is finalized
into a detailed design. Supporting analyses are performed
as needed to insure the design meets the stated requirements.
ARES uses a combination of commercial and custom software in our analyses. Detail drawings
are prepared for manufacturing. A prototype is fabricated and tested. The design is further refined as necessary based on the development testing. ARES Manufacturing and Test Departments are involved in this process from the beginning to incorporate producibility and maintainability in the design
