Oto Melara Forty Light unveiled at IDEX 2015
If a local emergency control is required, in addition to the remote control mode it is possible to adopt the coaxial configuration that foresees a high performance daylight camera installed on the gun mount. This camera allows the system control in an emergency autonomous mode if the CMS is not available.
If a completely autonomous mode is required, it is possible to adopt a Stand Alone with Micro Fire Control System (MFCS) configuration based on an independent line of aim Sensor Suite equipped with a daylight sensor, a cooled IR sensor and a LRF (Laser Range Finder). The system integrates a predictive ballistic calculation based on muzzle velocity radar installed on the gun mount. An auto tracking module, capable of identifying and aiming an acquired target, can be installed as optional. The fully CMS slaved mode is still available and selectable.
In conclusion, OTO Melara FORTY LIGHT system provides all the expected 40mm ammunition performance with the advantage of a compact, versatile and flexible structure typical of a smaller caliber system. Moreover, the modern design fulfils the increasing need of easy maintainability and management.
