Seeking to increase the combat power of small dismounted teams, DARPA is studying the Massive Overmatch Assault Round (MOAR) as a way to enhance current man-portable infantry weapon systems with compact, multi-function precision engagement munitions. While some manufacturers address these capabilities with dedicated weapon systems, Saab is exploring enhancement for its proven M4 and AT4 weapon systems, to meet MOAR goals.
