Abstract
The objective of this project is to demonstrate an innovative Intelligent Remotely Controlled Weapon Station with automated target hand-off. The purpose of the Remotely Controlled Weapon Station is to get the gunner out of the turret where he is exposed to enemy fire and fragments, and position him inside the vehicle for protection. A Shooter Detection System is used with the Weapon Station which can determine the position of the shooter and hand off the target to the fire control system by reporting the shooter's position to the local Intelligent Remotely Controlled Weapon Station. This is an automated hand-off situation for an individual unit of the Intelligent Remotely Controlled Weapon Station with a Shooter Detection System. Furthermore, multiple units of the Intelligent Remotely Controlled Weapon Station with a Shooter Detection System can be networked by an RF data link and they can also be linked to the CDAS and/or other C3/C4 systems centers for battlefield awareness enhancements, decision aiding and coordinated fire control. The target acquired by a unit can be handed off to other units or C3/C4 systems centers. In this way a powerful distributed fire control system is established.
