Automated Multiple Launch Rocket Battalion Fire Control System AMLRBFCS “Vulkan-R”

Command-Observation Post (COP)

The command-observation post is intended for making reconnaissance, determination of coordinates to the tar-gets and fire control. The command-observation post is situated in MTLB-U armored vehicle and is a fire control vehicle. However, a wheeled fire control vehicle can be equipped at customer’s request. The command-observation post is deployed at a distance of up to 1-3 km from the forward line. The data trans-mission channel is organized on the basis of W-LAN com-puter network between the command-observation post and the portable reconnaissance post, and WAN com-puter network between the command-observation post and 
the fire control post by using VHF radio transceivers with data transmission speed of 16 KB/sec.


The command-observation post consists of a fire control vehicle and up to 4 pcs portable reconnaissance and control posts.
 
The fire control vehicle consists of: - onboard computer:
-printing device; 
-HF radio transceiver, only for the command vehicle of the battalion commander and batteries commanders; 
-VHF radio transceivers – 3 (three) pcs; 
-access device – for W-LAN setting up;
-hub (concentrator); 
-laser range finder;
-sensors to measure the command vehicle tilt;
-remote control and laser range finder observation system;
-satellite navigation system (GPS); 
-independent navigation system; 
-artillery gyrocompass; 
-life provisioning equipment etc. 
 
Onboard computer 
The onboard computer is a basic component in AMLRBFCS “Vulcan-R” and is intended for: 
-binding of all components in an integrated fire control system;
-display of the battle formation elements on a geographic information system;
-coordinates determination of the battle formation elements and the targets;
-fire data determination;
-exchanging information about the reconnaissance targets, fire data, commands, orders etc.
The onboard computer exchanges information with:
-the range finder, the sensors for measuring the command vehicle tilt and the remote control and laser range finder observation system by RS 232 cable interface;
-the radio transceivers through LAN network;
-forward reconnaissance and control posts through WLAN network.
 
VHF radio transceiver 
The VHF radio transceiver is intended for exchanging speech data and information through digital channel at 16 KB/sec. The VHF radio transceiver is an up-to-date contemporary transceiver having data transmission mo-dem and encryption module. The VHF radio transceiver communicates with the onboard computer through LAN network. There are three radio transceivers in the fire control ve-hicle.
 
HF radio transceiver 
The HF radio transceiver is intended for exchanging speech data and information through digital channel at 3,6 KB/ sec. The HF radio transceiver is an up-to-date contempo-rary transceiver having data transmission modem and encryption module. The HF radio transceiver communi-cates with the onboard computer through LAN network. In each fire control vehicle there is one transceiver for the battalion commander and one for the batteries com-manders. The fire control post and the command-observation post are of one and the same type and completely interchangeable.
