Octopus ISR Techniques Epsilon Artillery Hearth Adjustment plugin – Drones Information
Riga, August 27, 2020 – Octopus ISR Systems today announced the release of a new and unique optional software upgrade for all Epsilon ISR payloads to support advanced image support functions: an Artillery Fire Adjustment plug-in.
The newly released feature allows the artillery battery fire to be coordinated by making corrections to the weapon target. The operator marks the point of impact with a simple click of a button or joystick, and the software automatically calculates deviations from the gun’s line of sight. The function supports multiple artillery batteries and, if necessary, calculations of the mean point of impact (MPI). The operator points the crosshair at the point of impact and marks a shot that will be added to the defined target. The software calculates the deviation between the target location and the shot position (or MPI).
The artillery, target and firing positions can be entered in decimal degrees or in MGRS, and the operator reports corrections to the GT line (gun target line) in meters.
All Epsilon high-performance cardan rings have a special integrated video processor that offers additional image processing functions and software functions. These advanced features greatly improve the usability and performance for end users.
