Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


III.G.07. Advanced Missile Systems Fire Control. By the end of FY97, demonstrate an enhanced missile system engagement capability against low signature targets in clutter and realistic battlefield environments. This activity will address the integration of missile guidance with advanced fire control sensor suites comprised of multispectral sensors. Emphasis will be placed on demonstrating effective handoff of targets from the fire control to a co-located missile system. System benefits include simplification of the operator’s task, increased effectiveness, reduced fratricide, and reduced cost.

Supports: D&SA, Mounted, and EELS Battle Labs, CORPS SAM, AVENGER, GBS, UGV, TACAWS, PEO Tactical Missiles, and PEO Missile Defense.
