Abstract:

The US Army Human Engineering Laboratory is developing a scaled configuration of a tank. Designated as the HEL Fire Control Research Target FCRT, the vehicle is designed to accept caliber .50 spotter rifle fire. Accelerometers, located on the interior of the vehicle, detect hits and transmit the data via the vehicle radiointercom system to the crew and the control station.
