Mobile Counter Fire System (MCFS) was developed by
Techno Sciences Inc (TSi) for the US Marine Corps and Army. The
vehicle is currently undergoing tests by the USMC Warfighting lab.
The system is comprised of an acoustic sensing array
to detect the direction of hostile fires. It includes a fire control
system with embedded navigation system, to manage the detected threat
coordinates and compensate for the effects of vehicle motion. An
electric gun mount with integral day and night video cameras for
automatic slew to cue operation completes the system. Target
identification and gun firing are under full control of the system
operator at all times.
MFCS can be used for self protection, as well as
convoy or fixed assets protection.
