A lightweight, compact, high hit-probability, Fire Control System (FCS) for grenade launcher tubes that provides fast and accurate aiming and firing (LOS/LOF) capabilities. A ballistic computer reconfigurable by means of uploaded firing tables for selected ammunition (HE frag, HEDP , Smoke, etc) provides enhanced hit probability against standing and moving ground targets. Unique solution available on the market Scorpio is a unique solution for the Fire Control of a Grenade Launcher: It is integrated with the weapon and directly measures the quantities that are necessary for a ballistic solution (line of fire attitude, target distance and movement). On this basis and considering the projectile firing tables, it autonomously calculates the ballistic lead angles. Scorpio then guides the soldier to position the weapon line of sight in order to hit the target, taking into account the dynamic conditions. KEY FEATURES Ballistic computer re-configurable by means of uploaded firing tables for selected ammunition Ballistic computation for ground static targets Ballistic computation for ground moving targets by means of cinematic lead angles computation Instinctive aiming by means of the Line of Fire (LOF) implementation in a Colour OLED display Class 3B pocket Laser Range Finder for Line of Sight (LOS) distance measurement Self powered by 3 AA batteries.
