GR Dynamics, LLC, a joint venture between General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products and RAFAEL Armament Development Authority, has developed the MK49 MOD0, a remote operated small arms mount for naval applications.

The MK49 can accommodate a variety of weapons, including the M2HB 12.7mm machine gun, the MK49 7.62mm Minigun and the MK19 grenade machine gun. The mount employs an infrared sighting system with the ability to automatically track detected threats and provide day, night and low visibility detection capabilities. The system enables the operator to remain concealed within the ship, providing enhanced safety.
The MK49 has been selected by United States Special Operations Command for use on naval special
warfare combatant craft and by the U.S. Navy for its Shipboard Protection System. The mount is ideal for independent installation on larger vessels or integration with a mast-mounted detection and
engagement system.
