slide2

Today’s soldier needs to operate a number of different electronic devices

each with their own separate controls

But how do they do this without taking their eyes off task or hands off weapon?

slide3

THE PROBLEM

  • Multiple interfaces and locations
  • Increased complexity
  • Increased power & weight
  • IMPACT ON SOLDIER
  • Increased mental load
  • Greater movement & error
  • Reduced speed of operation
  • Reduced situational awareness
  • Reduced safety
current solutions

US Land Warrior

German IDZ

French FELIN

CURRENT SOLUTIONS
  • Not programmable or “smart”
  • Limited growth potential
    • Change devices – change interface
  • Limited command set
  • Multiple locations
  • Difficult to use:
    • On the move
    • Eyes-free
    • Hand on weapon
slide5

Kord Defence and Thales Australia have developed a new technology that provides integrated control for today’s soldier

  • Simple
  • From the weapon
  • On the move
  • Fast (Instinctive)
  • One-handed
  • Head-up
rifle input control
RIFLE INPUT CONTROL
  • Five button, rugged controller
  • Mounted on foregrip of rifle via standard Picatinny Rail
  • Standalone/Integrated
  • Programmable
  • Wired or wireless
  • Internal/external power

operation
OPERATION
  • Press single or multiple buttons (chords) to operate
  • Incorporates patented technology:
    • Chordic graphical user interface (CGUI)

For example:

PRESS THUMB AND FIRST FINGER

  • Minimal training required.
  • Users remember key functions (muscle memory)
  • Eyes-free operation
benefits
BENEFITS
  • Speed of operation: > x 2
  • Response time: sub-second
  • Situational awareness: > double
  • Cognitive load: significantly reduced
  • Training: 12-16 functions in 1 hr
  • Movement or noise: minimal
status
STATUS
  • Partnership with Thales Australia
  • Australian Army assessed working prototype
  • RIC integrated into design of new Austeyr rifle (F88)
  • Soldier trials - December 2009/ March 2010
  • Ruggedised RIC Trial units developed
  • Production prototypes (TRL 8) ready mid 2010
  • New forms under development – handheld/body worn
