Lessons Learned During LFT


Firing the weapon distorts the video image from the sighting systems. This will likely have negative affects to the autotrackers. Overcome issues tuning the stabilization to compensate for the recoil of the weapon. Shorter bursts may be more effective than traditional crew served firing bursts.

Competitive Simulated Testing


The purpose of this testing was to verify the mounts stabilization and auto-tracking was adequate in various sea states. Each vender mounted their system on a 6 degrees freedom of motion platform at NAWC TSD, Orlando. Each mount was tested with 13 different scenarios. Dispersion data was recorded from each scenario.

Lessons Learned During CST


Stabilization isnt everything, auto-tracking is very important. Systems that stabilize the sighting sensors, which send position commands to the weapon, seem to lag behind those that stabilize the whole system.
