Abstract:

In response to Army topic A052-080-1968, Oceanit Laboratories has proposed the Hostile Fire Detection System (HFDS), which will detect attacks from close range weapons and locate enemy combatants. HFDS is based on Oceanit's patented MOST focal plane. It utilizes a time-intensity identification technique that rapidly detects weapons fire and rejects false signals such as sun glint. HFDS is configurable and consists of two Line Replaceable Units (LRUs): Optical Sensor Modules (OSMs) and the Electronic Control Unit (ECU). The OSMs will be custom designed, while the ECU will utilize a commercial-off-the-shelf/non-developmental item (COTS/NDI) approach. The system will detect hostile events in 1/10th second and locate enemy combatants in 1 second or less. This research and development is based on successful Air Force and Missile Defense Agency programs. Phase I (complete) demonstrated feasibility. Phase II will develop prototypes for test and experimentation. When fully developed, the system will support a range of Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection requirements including protection of troops in hostile and non-hostile areas and protection of US facilities such as embassies. The system will also provide Homeland Security protection for commercial airports and ports.
