moco motion compensation
MoCo – Motion Compensation

Gun Jump

  • Being mounted on the gun itself, the MVR is exposed to the gun jump and moves with the gun immediately after firing.
  • The radar therefore measures the sum of projectile velocity and the gun jump
  • The gun jump alone can cause as much as a 2 m/s error in the reported MV
  • The actual gun jump varies with several parameters:
    • Muzzle velocity
    • Firing elevation
    • Ground conditions
    • Etc.
  • Therefore it is necessary to measure and compensate for the actual gun jump
    • To provide MV results with the required high accuracy
    • Typically 0.05%

Weibel proprietary

measured gun jump 155 mm
Measured Gun Jump – 155 mm

NOTE: The Gun Jump - Affects the entire 0.5 sec measurement

compensated and raw velocity
Compensated and Raw Velocity

- 1.16 m/s difference

- 0.14% MV error

improved accuracy
Improved accuracy


■ The precision with motion compensation is 15-20 times higher than without

■ The gun jump effect varies ≈40% with a 17% change in the muzzle velocity.

Weibel proprietary

seca self calibration
SeCa – Self Calibration


  • By ensuring the velocity readings are always calibrated the SeCa option eliminates the need for scheduled calibration and check outs.
  • The system can remain installed on the gun through it entire service life
  • Thus reducing the cost of ownership

setup and using
Setup and using


  • 1 cable 3 functions
  • >10sec startup
  • Intuitive user interface (Up-down, left-right, enter, menu & power)
  • Robust construction (if you drop it, it will break your feet)
  • Combined weight is 12kg, meaning 1 guy can carry the set
  • No parameter settings
  • Arm & fire
  • Self calibration means reliable and thrusts worthy results
  • Training can be done in 2 days, and passed on (we recommend 4-5 days)

success story 1
Success story 1
  • Canadian Army,Since2006
  • Selected based on extensive field testing under winter conditions
  • RSL failed to provide the required support during the trail and did not achieve any valid measurement
  • Weibel was selected based on the outstanding technical performance, and competitive price
  • Weibel achieved the required expedited procurement to meet the requirement for the Canadian armed forces campaign in Afghanistan
  • 16 system has been deployed to Afghanistan and used extensively for 5 years with only a single minor defect (fuse)

Weibel proprietary

success story usa
Success story USA
  • US Army, Since 2003
  • Replaced the RSL radar on the M109A6 Paladin, the RSL MVR had serious performance issues
  • During the original qualification trails in 1993, the MVRS-700 was the only technical compliant solution
  • This is the only MVR contract Weibel has lost in open competition during the last 19 years.
  • The RSL radar was originally purchased following a formal protest and retesting, delaying the acquisition procedure
  • Selected for based on technical performance
  • 1100 units delivered and operational

usa continued
USA Continued
  • U.S: ARMY ; M777A2 & M119A2, 2011
  • The MVRS-700SC was selected as the only technical acceptable MV radar after a competitive selection process with RSL and EDH as competing systems
  • The army required a high accuracy with a 100% of the time
  • Inaccurate data “potentially has a cumulative effect of increasing the likelihood of a fired round either falling short or over shootings its intended target” which in either case “significantly increases the changes of fractricide and/or striking civilian-populated areas”
  • The RSL failed to provide accurate MV on 35 of 94 (37% fault rate) rounds fired
  • The Weibel MVRS-700 performed accurately on the required 100%
  • The price was found to be competitive
  • Again RSL filed a formal complaint with GAO delaying the Army’s acquisition process, the complaint was rejected
  • As publiced on March 28, 2011
