An optically guided mortar comprising a three axis canard assembly, an optical seeker, a guidance and control processor, and a fuze mechanism. The optical seeker is a direct replacement for existing standard mortar fuzes. The resulting system significantly improves current mortar circular error probability (CEP) and results in overall reduction of cost of target prosecution, reduction in collateral damage, improved crew survivability, and adds compatibility against limited non-stationary targets. The optical seeker detects an optical illuminator located ...
What is claimed is: 1. An optically guided ballistic shell comprising: a casing adapted to contain an explosive charge; a guidance and control system located in a fore portion of the casing, said guidance and control system including: an optical seeker for detecting an optical illuminator located at a target; a processor for generating steering commands based upon sight information received by the optical seeker; and a canard assembly for changing the flight path of the shell from its ballistic flight path based upon the steering commands received from ...
