RILS - Round Identification and Location System
The Round Identification and Location System (RILS) is a standalone Doppler radar scoring system. The heart of RILS is the Non-Contact Hit Sensor (NCHS) that provides location and identification of projectile types along with velocity and angle of approach in realtime. Hit data from the NCHS is uploaded to the laptop ground station through a WLAN. Data gathered by the ground station is displayed in a Windows-based application that includes utilities for report generation.
If desired, the RILS can generate a preprogrammed hit pulse to knock down the associated target. The NCHS is adaptable to all target lifters, moving and stationary, and may also be used for hard targets. Both color-graphical and standard-text displays are presented to the operator by either computer monitor or hardcopy.
The NCHS scoring medium consists of multiple radar fields and is not affected by environmental conditions, or the physical condition of the target panel. Using the NCHS expands available valuable training time and lowers overall operational costs. The NCHS will score all full-caliber rounds; subsonic, supersonic, and hypervelocity. When used with the RILS, the NCHS is programmable to score all standard Army / NATO target sizes. Using the RILS laptop ground station, hot location and projectile ID is available for real-time display and/or hard-copy printout.
