Octopus ISR Systems Epsilon Artillery Fire Adjustment plugin

Octopus ISR Systems announced today the release of a new and unique optional software upgrade for all Epsilon ISR payloads to support advanced image-aiding features: an Artillery Fire Adjustment plugin.

The newly released feature enables coordination of artillery battery fire by providing gun target corrections. The operator marks the impact point with a simple click of a button or joystick, and the software automatically calculates deviations in reference to the gun target line. The feature supports several artillery batteries, as well as mean point of impact (MPI) calculations if necessary. The operator points the crosshairs on the impact point and marks a shot which is added to the defined target. The software calculates the deviation between the target location and shot position (or MPI).

The artillery, target and shot positions can be entered in decimal degrees or in MGRS, and the operator reports GT line (gun target line) corrections in meters.
