Abstract
THIS STUDY WILL EXAMINE THE CONCEPTS INVOLVED IN ENHANCING THE OPERATION OF THE INTEGRATED SMART ARTILLERY SYNTHESIS (ISAS) ROBOTIC AMMUNITION HANDLING SYSTEM, AND WILL DEFINE THE TECHNOLOGY REQUIRED TO IMPLEMENT SUCH A SYSTEM. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL CONSIST PRIMARILY OF AN ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNIT AND DATA BUS TO PROCESS INFORMATION ON SYSTEM STATUS DATA AND CLOSED-LOOP CONTROL PARAMETERS, AND INTERFACE WITH A CENTRAL FIRE CONTROL SYSTEM. PRESENT LARGE DATABASES WOULD BE REPLACED BY REAL-TIME INFORMATION QUISITION ALONG WITH GENERIC CLOSED-LOOP CONTROL ROUTINES AND AUTOMATIC SWITCHING LOGIC TO CONTROL AMMUNITION HANDLING AND DELIVERY IN A RAPIDLY CHANGING ENVIRONMENT. THE IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW SENSING METHODS, SUCH AS VISION TECHNOLOGY, WILL ALSO BE INVESTIGATED.
