Description

The Sighting Device with integrated Fire Control System (FCS) is developedfor shoulder launched weapon systems, like the RGW 90 familysystem. It is equipped with a laserrangefinder, ballistics computer and an internal micro display with electronic reticle. It allows the shooter to engage a targetwith a high first-hit probability even ata range of up to 1.200 meters. Withan optical clip-on night-vision the system is also usable at night. The FCS is attached to the launcherwithin seconds and the menu-guidedoperation of the FCS can be done byone person with no need for anyfurther support. The gunner is able to measure the distance to the target and select the fuse mode. The integrated FCS ballistics computer calculates offset and lead angle to automatically display the aiming mark. The type of ammunition can beidentified, and the appropriate operating menu is selected automatically when attached to the launcher. Even if the battery is empty the Sighting Device can still be used for aiming and firing at targets at lower distances (direct hit operation by means of an etched reticle). The Sighting Device is already prepared for use with guided missile systems (fire and forget) for a range up to 2000 meters. The gunner is also able to fight against targets incover. The electronic interface of the weapon provides an input for an external video signal (seeker headcamera) which can be viewed on the internal display to identify and mark the target object.
