Rifle System (MPRS) fire control system is designed by
International Technologies Lasers
modern and future "land warrior" type applications. The MPRS
measures the range to the target, displays a corrected aiming
point for proper elevation necessary for an accurate fire, and
automatically sets the time delay fuse in the grenade to activate
the bomb just before impact, at a preset altitude over the target.
The fuze can also be set to explode at a preset delay after an
impact, to enable penetration of a soft target (a window, for
example). IMI is also developing two new submunitions for the
Refaim. The MPRS has additional C4I functions, including a digital
compass and laser pointer which provide effective coordination in
the battlefield, as well as full integration into tactical command
and control systems. Information from the system can be displayed
at the team and squad level, neighboring forces such as tanks or
helicopters, or link up to higher echelons.
Based on the MPRS,
or its standard MARS reflection sight,
ITL is also offering "round
the corner" application for its advanced "Urban Warrior" program.
The system comprises of a video camera mounted on the weapon,
"looking" through the MARS (red dot sight used on the
current Tavor assault rifles)
which clearly shows the aiming point. The image can be transmitted
to an eyepiece work by the soldier or sent back to a forward
command post where it provides real-time monitoring of the combat
situation. ITL also offers a wearable computer for the "Urban
Warrior", which provides navigation, situational awareness and
coordination, target identification, ranging, reporting etc.
into infantry weapon systems, MPRS can be coupled with the Warrior
Compact Targeter (WACT) developed by IAI/MLM.
