Abstract:

The Catadioptric Omni-Directional System was developed by the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center ARDEC Acoustic and Network Sensors Office, Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey to demonstrate existing technologies that could increase situational awareness for the M1A2 Abrams crew. The project required a rapid and easily incorporated solution that could attach to the tank without permanent modification and at low cost. On 23 February 2005, the completed system was demonstrated to PM Abrams Tank Urban Survivability Kit TUSK Program Manager.
