The AEI Systems INSPEKTA is a 30mm gas operated single barrel cannon firing from 200 to 300 spm and is suitable for naval and vehicle applications.

INSPEKTA is a belt fed weapon system designed from the outset to be available in two versions. The primary version fires the 30 x 173 mm round and a secondary version fires the 30 x165 mm round. INSPEKTA is entirely designed and produced by AEI Systems in the UK and thus free from ITAR restrictions.
