A good method for improving the survivability of soldiers on the ground is to help ensure that threats can be eliminated quickly before posing a significant threat. One way to accomplish this is to ensure that shots fired by soldiers hit targets quickly and efficiently. A soldiers preference is to impact the target with the first shot. However, there is a complex set of factors that dictate where a bullet will impact and these cannot always be effectively predicted by the soldier. There is a need for a system that can track fired shots, identify the amount of error in the shot (that is the distance between the bullet and the target), calculate a new aim point, and display this aim point for the soldier. Cybernet is leveraging our extensive experience with the development and application of LADAR systems, electronic sensor development, sensor data processing, and visualization displays to develop a LADAR based system that can serve as a closed-loop fire control (CLFC) system for small caliber weapons. During the Phase II effort, we will be building a fully-function prototype system.
