Automated Towed Artillery Battalion ATABFCS “Vulkan-B” Fire Control System

Portable Reconnaissance Post (PRP)

The portable reconnaissance post is designed for making reconnaissance and targets’ coordinates determination from a ground observation post. The portable reconnaissance post can control the fire provided that it has been entitled by the command-observation post to exercise control. The data transmission channel is organized on the basis of W-LAN computer network between the handheld control and navigation wireless network terminal and the command-observation post with data transmission speed from 1 to 11 MB/sec at up to 900 m or by using VHF radio transceivers for operation at longer ranges (1.5 – 2 km) with data transmission speed of 16 KB/sec.

The portable reconnaissance post consists of technical means as follows:

Handheld control and navigation wireless network terminal with GPS.
The hand reconnaissance terminal is designed for coordinates determination by means of GPS, for processing the results of measurements of the surveillance and reconnaissance assembly unit, for storage of the reconnaissance information and fire control data, provided it has been entitled to exercise control.

Surveillance and reconnaissance assembly unit.
The surveillance and reconnaissance assembly unit is intended for measuring distances and angles coordinates to targets. The surveillance and reconnaissance assembly unit exchanges information with the hand terminal by RS 232 cable interface.

VHF radio transceiver.
The VHF radio transceiver is intended for exchanging speech data and information with the command-observation post and the fire control post.
