Abstract:

This report consists of two parts 1 Evaluation of target acquisition time and target tracking performance of the Simplified Control System SFCS on a stationary target. 2 Evaluation of in-flight firing tests on a stationary target utilizing the SFCS1 in place of the pantograph reflex sight as part of the XM16 M6 armament system installed in a UH-1B helicopter. Results of the target acquisition time and target tracking flight tests indicated that performance was equal to or superior to other unity power non-stabilized sighting systems with the additional advantage of providing hands-free training of flexible area and suppressive fire armaments throughout the entire azimuth and elevation weapons excursions. Time to acquire targets was on the order of 2 seconds at all train angles. Author
