Abstract
nVision Technology, Inc. proposes to develop a system that mounts to the mortar system and brings the same level of performance and ease of use to fire control for 60mm, 81mm, and 120mm mortar systems that it has brought to small arms fire control. With built-in sensors and minimal user input (projectile information, the wind, range/position of target), the system will automatically compensate for the current atmospheric conditions and orientation of the weapon to compute a firing solution. The wind data and target position data can be either manually provided or automatically populated from external sources in fact, this is a feature that is already present in a number of products using our software. The embedded solver can also account for a variable wind, such as those experienced by a round on a high angle trajectory the proposed solver would be able to incorporate the wind profiles transmitted via MET messages, adjusting the wind experienced by the simulated projectile as it moves vertically and accurately computing a firing solution.
