Fire Control System for Small Caliber Weapons

PROJECT MISSION

Cybernet is currently working with the U.S. Army to build the first article prototype of a LADAR-based closed-loop-fire-control system for small caliber weapons. LADARs leverage the reflection of emitted laser light to track the distance to objects in the environment. For moving objects, such as bullets, the high update rate of many LADARs (in particular flash LADARs) allows for an accurate calculation of the velocity of the object from a series of position updates, while providing a 3D picture of the environment. To execute this program, we will be manufacturing and integrating the first prototype closed-loop-fire-control system based on the design developed during the Phase I effort. We will also perform live fire testing on the control system at both public and government firing ranges. It is envisioned that the control system to be studied will eventually be used to improve soldiers aim to help improve the likelihood that the soldier hits his target. This will simultaneously improve the soldier's lethality and survivability.
