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


III.N.18. Indirect Precision Fire (IPF) ATD. The IDF Program consists of two concepts: the Auto-Registration System (ARS), with a 140m CEP Accuracy goal at 35km; and the Self-Correcting System (SCS), with a 10m CEP accuracy goal at ranges up to 35 km. Design, fabrication, and testing of subsystems for ARS begin in FY96 for a system demonstration in FY98. Also, in FY96-98, continue critical component development for SCS to lay the foundation for a proposed four-year ATD, leveraging key Navy technology programs, to develop and demonstrate the STO technologies in a 9-inch, 3-volume, GPS/INS guidance, 2-dimensional control system with a fuzing capability. In FY01, conduct full-up-around ATD for SCS.
