Abstract:

The Battlefield Systems Integration Directorate of the Army Material Readiness and Development Command DARCOMBSI requested that The BDM Corporation review and analyze three artillery related problems the integration and coordination of target acquisition and designation resources for artillery attack of armored systems in Zone 1, the same review and analysis for Zone 2 as for Zone 1, and the ammunition requirements for conventional artillery ammunition fire against area targets normally found on the modern battlefield. For the purpose of accomplishing Tasks 1 and 2, target acquisition and designation resources were defined as being standoff target acquisition system SOTAS, remotely piloted vehicles RPVs, the advanced scout helicopter ASH, a forward observer with a ground laser locator designator GLLD, a forward observer without a ground laser locator designator, REMBASS sensor items, and ground surveillance radars. Early in the research effort, it was determined that the current organization of the ground artillery locating and designating teams now called Fire Support Teams of FIST appear ot be very efficient units.
