Mobile Counter Fire System

Techno Sciences Inc. / USA

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.
