Abstract:

This report describes a research and development effort aimed at determining the feasibility of developing a small gun laser engagement system for field research and evaluation purposes. The prototype system developed has a capability for realistic shooter performance requirements and weapons signature, realistic simulation of weapons effects in terms of real-time casualty assessment and suppression, and player-carried memory for collecting and recording time, casualty, and player identification data. The prototype laser simulator demonstrates that the requirements for casualty assessment and data recording necessary for field research can be met using this system. Further research and development are necessary to make the system fully operational.
