Dynamic alignment - the Schill way
Our full featured optical tracking and evaluation systems are designed for the triple purposes of:
Weapon system fault finding and identification
As a complement, our single channel gun camera systems can be used for quick checking of the weapon system and guns, i.e. benchmark tests.
Having made static alignment and after insertion of the given correcton values, the alignment of your weapon system should be verified.
Our dynamic aligner systems provide step-by-step guided procedures for user friendly measurements of tilt, azimuth and elevation. Calculations of the alignment results are made automatically and stored in a database for easy retrieval at any time.
Optical evaluation - principle
The behaviour of the weapon stations in dynamic conditions can be measured, analysed and documented. Multi-channel video from trackers, guns and other weapon stations can be recorded and replayed, fully synchronized, where replay speed can be varied even down to manual frame-by-frame stepping, thus ensuring even the most detailed analysis.
Fault finding and identification
Alignment verification errors
After having entered correction values from the static alignment, the dynamic alignment errors should be close to zero. Significant discrepancies indicate prescence of errors in the weapon system. Such errors can emanate from servos, gyros, electrical components or software in the various weapon stations or elseware in the weapon control system.
Abnormalities in behaviour like for example intermittent gun vibrations, unexpected gun movements when designated to a tracked target can be recorded and analyzed.
Alignment result data and diagrams as well as dynamic measurement recordings are stored in our alignment systems and can be retrieved at any time. This provides an excellent base for fault analysis and fault identification. Stored data and recordings can also be sent to manufacturers for further analysis or discussions.
