The main purpose of the battery commander’s terminal is to interact with the MilStaff command terminal and the terminal of the senior battery officer.
The main function is to obtain information from the highest level of command on objectives or directly from the battlefield and transfer executive commands to the senior battery officer to carry out combat orders.
The main purpose of the senior battery officer’s terminal is to interact with the terminals of the battery commander and gun commanders for clear coordination on combat orders.
The main functions are to obtain targeting data via encrypted digital communication channels from the battery commander’s terminal, to control the gun, to perform ballistics calculations and to transfer data to the gun commanders.
The gun commander’s terminal is designed to transfer gun data to the senior battery officer via secure communications equipment, to receive commands and data to target the gun from the terminal of the senior battery officer, and to forward them to the spotter through the Spot Data Display System (SDDS). In self-directed mode, the gun commander’s terminal can act independently.
