Remote Operated Small Arms Mount

  • What is the ROSAM?
  • A remote operated, 2-axis stabilized small arms mount
  • FLIR/CCDTV sighting systems
  • Auto-Tracking function
  • Look-up table for ballistic compensation
  • Multiple weapon interfaces
  • Directed by joy-stick, radar, or remote EO device (i.e. MARFLIR)
  • What are some benefits of ROSAM?
  • Operator inside craft, out of weather
  • Greater accuracy, especially while on fast/dynamic platform
  • Fewer rounds expended
  • Fire cutouts enable small missiles (back-blast)
  • Remote operation for unmanned vehicles
  • Crew servable in event of electronic failure
  • Interface with multiple small arms weapons
slide3

  • History of ROSAM?
  • Stabilized GUA-19
  • Stabilized 25mm
  • Early remote small arms testing
  • Slaving remote mounts to radar and EO devices
  • Integrating remote mounts to Integrated Radar Optical Surveillance Sighting System (IROS3)
  • ROSAM IDIQ contract

Remote Operated Small Arms Mount

  • Live Fire Testing
  • The purpose of this testing was to verify the mounts could handle the payload and recoil of the M2HB, along with keeping accuracy.
  • Four foot square target at 300 yards
  • Fired 10 round bursts, 8 times
slide12

Remote Operated Small Arms Mount

  • Lessons Learned During LFT
  • Firing the weapon distorts the video image from the sighting systems. This will likely have negative affects to the auto-trackers.
  • Overcome issues tuning the stabilization to compensate for the recoil of the weapon.
  • Shorter bursts may be more effective than traditional crew served firing bursts.
slide13

Remote Operated Small Arms Mount

  • Competitive Simulated Testing
  • The purpose of this testing was to verify the mounts stabilization and auto-tracking was adequate in various sea states.
  • Each vender mounted their system on a 6 degrees freedom of motion platform at NAWC TSD, Orlando.
  • Each mount was tested with 13 different scenarios.
  • Dispersion data was recorded from each scenario.
slide14

Remote Operated Small Arms Mount

  • Lessons Learned During CST
  • Stabilization isn’t everything, auto-tracking is very important.
  • Systems that stabilize the sighting sensors, which send position commands to the weapon, seem to lag behind those that stabilize the whole system.
