Upgradable turret Aiming and Stabilization
The self-protection of deployed troops depends on the precision and reliability of their armament. Weapons accuracy and reliability are crucial factors for combat success. Today’s turret is typically mounted on an armored land vehicle that’s most useful when traversing rugged, harsh terrain. The ability to accurately locate a target and stabilize the shot while moving out of the line of site could make all the difference.
Developed from over 60 years industry experience, the Turret Drive Servo System (TDSS) is based on a modular equipment system approach and suits a range of applications from weapon stations to main battle tanks with turrets up to 20 Tons.
A typical TDSS consists of linear and rotary drives, a motor controller, single and dual axis gyroscopes, hand controllers and integrated software. Depending on the size and weight of the turret, the system can be paired down or scaled up to meet the performance and precision requirements.
Off-the-shelf, the TDSS is a modular, upgradable system that has three standard levels of functionality where turret control and/or stabilization increase with each level. Additionally, each level includes customization options to incrementally increase stabilization accuracy, ensuring system upgradability.
