Abstract:

A growing number of US Army programs requires target detection and identification at long stand-off-ranges from airborne helicopter platforms. One method that is currently being pursued to meet this requirement is to provide the helicopter gunner with a precision stabilized optical or electro-optical sighting system. Unfortunately, the required optical magnification requires a small angular field-of-view. This can result in excessive target search times during which the helicopter may be vulnerable to enemy fire.
