Sydor Technologies scoring systems utilize camera and acoustic technologies to provide cost effective target scoring for bombs, practice bombs, ordinance, artillery and more. Our scoring systems are real time, feeding wireless data to the command center or pilot COMM network to enable the pilot or gunner to interactively train and optimize systems. The data is used to calibrate or adjust instrumentation for optimized targeting performance. Our team can provide the targeting equipment, as well as complex project management of remote installations, local construction, and long term support.
The AWSS consists of configurations that include full bomb and strafing courts or modular combinations of both.
BOMB COURT: Rugged trailers with 40’ masts containing camera imaging systems with intelligent local processors, communication equipment to stream real time data to a central command tower and/or the pilot or gunner. This system uses a battery/solar powered module for remote application at the edges of the bomb court. The data collected and/or transmitted includes the imaged data, data reduction/analysis that calculates the target error coordinates and correction information. This real-time result is transmitted over a pilot COMM network for interactive pilot training and improvement while in a sortie training run.
Real time scoring feedback provides significant training benefits and cost savings.
STRAFING COURT: Dual acoustic systems on 600mm tall stands are located behind protection berms and are focused on the customer supplied target screen. The sensors and tripods are small and lightweight and portable by common pickup trucks/trailers. Power units, along with solar recovery and optional weather stations are included. The acoustic sensors run at high speed, catching the supersonic profile of the incoming projectile and triangulating its position concurrent with counting the event.
With two modes available, the AWSS system can display rounds per minute results and the location of the strafe projectiles in the target area. The angle of attack and the horizontal approach angle are also calculated.
The rugged and compact scoring processing units can wirelessly transmit results to the central command receiver. Real-time feedback provides gunners the corrections required during sortie training runs, along with equipment adjustments and calibration for the pilot and gunners’ improved performance.
Live strafing score results allow pilots to train less to provide a cost savings with fewer sorties and all data is stored for off-line analysis.
MASS is designed to be easy to use and maneuver via trailer mounted equipment. Each self-contained trailer includes two cameras, a mast system, a battery power unit and additional storage. The trailers can be deployed safely away from the target area and can quickly accommodate different target blast radiuses, with an operator located within 5 km to control the scoring system.
Specifically, designed image processing software will detect and triangulate the impact point, and return fast feedback on the impact GPS coordinates. Live and practice rounds can be detected from generated video signals (via smoke and ground bursts).
