The first information about work on a next-generation automatic rifle called FSWS (Future Soldier Weapon System) appeared in November 2019. At that time, the Lithgow Arms factory owned by Thales Australia posted the first graphics showing the design of the next-generation shooter. Work on the weapon began in 2015.

The FSWS is to be equipped with a computerized shooting sight incorporating augmented reality, which is expected to increase the probability of hitting with the first shot by 400%. The targeting system is expected to automatically recognize targets (distinguishing humans from unmanned systems), track moving objects, and minimize human error with an intelligent trigger mechanism.

A shot will only be fired if there is the certainty of a hit. Models currently being tested have achieved an increase in the probability of hitting with the first shot from 20% currently to 80%, with minimal training of the soldier. With this, the goal of making every shooter a sniper with the support of a computerized sight is to be realized.

The FSWS is to be equipped with biometric sensors but is to operate like a typical automatic rifle if they are damaged or disabled. The weapon developed as part of the Future Soldier Weapon System is expected to weigh less than two kilograms (the EF88 currently in use weighs 3.44 kilograms) and be equipped with a communication system that allows data to be transferred between other firing structures in the subunit and the command system. This will allow information about a detected enemy to be immediately transmitted to a computerized sight.
