Automated Self-propelled Artillery Battalion Fire Control System ASABFCS “Vulkan-C”

Portable Reconnaissance Post (PRP)

The portable reconnaissance post is de-signed 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 orga-nized on the basis of W-LAN computer network between the portable computer 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 transmis-sion speed of 16 KB/sec.

The portable reconnaissance post consists of technical means as follows:
Portable computer
The portable computer is intended for: 
-coordinates determination by GPS. The GPS receiver is situated in the VHF radio transceiver;
-processing the results of measurements of the surveil-lance and reconnaissance assembly unit;
-storage of reconnaissance information;
-display of the battle formation elements on a geographic information system;
-coordinates determination of the battle formation ele-ments and the targets;
-fire control provided it has been entitled to exercise control.

Surveillance and reconnaissance assembly unit
The surveillance and reconnaissance assembly unit is in-tended for measuring distances and angles coordinates to targets. The surveillance and reconnaissance assembly unit ex-changes information with the hand reconnaissance ter-minal 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.
