Abstract
In response to Army topic A052-080-1968, Oceanit Laboratories proposes the Hostile Fire Detection System (HFDS), which will detect attacks from close range weapons and locate enemy combatants. HFDS will utilize optical sensing techniques that combine temporal metrics with spectral intensity. A high-speed optical sensor enables rapid detection of events, including gunshot muzzle flash and distinguishes real weapons fire from 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) design approach. The system will detect hostile events in 1/10th second and locate enemy combatants in 1 second or less. The research and development will be based on successful Air Force and Missile Defense Agency programs. Phase I will demonstrate feasibility. Phase II will develop a prototype for testing. 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 official US facilities such as embassies. The system could also provide Homeland Security protection for commercial airports and ports.
