In Memory

Sharon Swan  June 2, 1951 – February 19, 2015.

Sharon, her Husband Richard (Dick) Swan, and Mother-in-law Mildred Swan, established their family business, A.R.M.S., Inc. together in 1980. Sharon was very dedicated and proud of her company, Atlantic Research Marketing Systems, Inc. (A.R.M.S. Inc.) It was also the same year that Sharon and Dick were married.  Sharon remained the Executive vice president of the company for 35 years. Upon the death of her mother-in-law Mildred in 1989, Sharon displayed more of her exceptional abilities to master any new tasks, including reaching out to many customers from around the world. Her fondest duties were working with America’s Military Personnel, “MY SOLDIERS”!, and supplying services and equipment to their many needs, and government contracts. The many products Sharon controlled were all invented, developed and manufactured by Sharon and her husband working as a team that loved working together.  Sharon organized and hosted many professional trade shows and company parties, plus their annual small town 4th of July celebrations in East Bridgewater at their home on Swan Lake.  She also loved her new high mountain winter home in South Carolina. She had hobbies in sewing, quilting, baking, church events, cowboy movies, riding around in her antique cars, spending time at her lake feeding the fish, listening to the frogs, relaxing on the dock her husband Richard built for her, plus her flower beds, 50s music and dancing, with Elvis Presley’s “The Wonder of you” being her favorite song.  Sharon loved traveling with her husband, with many trips to Europe, around the country, a cruise to Alaska, a Caribbean cruise with sister Susan and daughter Kelly, as well as a trip to Paris with her daughter Jaclyn. Most of all, Sharon loved taking care of her family and friends and made many donations to charities and causes in East Bridgewater. She loved people, and loved helping others. Always with a smile, and never one to complain, even with the complications of Multiple Sclerosis, (MS). A stronger and more dedicated and loving woman can not be found.

CSM Martin Barreras  October 7, 1964 – May 13, 2014

Marty Barreras was a dear friend of the Swan family, and a true American Hero.  Marty will forever be in our hearts and prayers.

Our President/CEO, Richard Swan, being presented the Chinn Award by
NDIA Vice President – Operations, Lt. Gen. Barry D. Bates (Ret.)

The George M. Chinn award is presented annually to honor a government or industry individual who, in the opinion of the Small Arms Division Executive Board, has made significant contributions to the field of small arms and/or infantry weapons systems.  A significant contribution is considered to be a creative invention, new design, or innovative concept in small arms weapons, ammunition or ancillary equipment that provides an advancement in the state-of-the-art or capability enhancement that clearly benefits the warfighting or general military capability of the United States.  The Chinn Award may also be conferred as recognition to an individual who has performed sustained superior service in a career field of science, engineering, test & evaluation, manufacturing, program management, academic study & research, publishing, or maintenance relating to military small arms or infantry weapons.

The Chinn Award is named in honor of Lt. Col. George M. Chinn, a career Marine Corps Officer who dedicated his life to the study, development and refinement of machine mechanisms.  Lt. Col. Chinn is remembered for his work as a gun designer and for having compiled a five volume reference work entitled, “The Machine Gun.”

It was a further honor to Mr. Swan that the presentations were made simultaneously with Maj. Allen Bootby, USMC, Recipient of the NDIA Carlos Hathcock Sniper Award

NDIA individual weapons seminar call for papers regarding ancillary equipment, selected Mr. Swan’s abstract titled, “Sermon On The Mount”

The presentation included a brief history of the past 25 years to present, and documents devices and weapons.  The documented photo history also included how the A.R.M.S. standard rail dimensions were first adopted by Canadian Forces, Colt, and Picatinny as the 1913 dovetail rail and how/where they are applied today.

The Sermon on the Mount presentation includes:

  • – A brief history of where and how we were mounting early aiming devices
  • – How new mounting systems and devices evolved
  • – How developers for fire control are governed by weapons surfaces, ergonomics and tactics
  • – Modularity was not always understood or practiced
  • – Lasers were not always around, understood, nor wanted
  • – Dovetail Rails were a hard sell at one time
  • – Why weapons designers need to work with optics/laser/NV and mount makers before,   during, and after development
  • – Why all branches of the services must have their specific needs in fire control addressed in common interfacing
  • – Human engineering factors
  • – Should we rely on electronics alone for hand held point of aim weapons?
  • – What needs to be considered for providing reliable power to future weapons?  Is a battery the only way?
  • – Built-in devices vs. field interchangeable systems
  • – Importance of helping weapons run cooler thus longer, and keeping barrels free of direct attachment of rails and mounted devices
  • – Helping Electro-Optic devices run longer without failures due to weapon heat and vibrations
