The HENSOLDT Short-Range Pointer (SRP) is a portable pointer developed to protect warships against residual and time-critical threats in close-in-defence context. With the SRP, watchkeepers can quickly aim at any visually detected threats (IED-UAV and USV, asymmetric threats etc.). By pulling the trigger, the SRP operator drastically shortens the sensor-to-shooter loop sending instantaneously accurate designations (bearing, elevation, distance) to the Remote Weapon and Combat Management Systems (RWS, CMS).
Thanks to its wireless capability, this pointer offers the highest mobility of its kind. Relying on a removable rechargeable battery pack providing more than 10 hours of autonomy, the SRP can be used indoors, outdoors (rear deck, docks) and even on a deported fast vessel located up to 8 Nm from the mother ship hosting the SRP base unit. Consequently, the Observe Orient Decide Act (OODA) loop is far greatly improved
